What factors can influence personal injury settlements?

Many of our personal injury clients ask us to tell them the value of their case when they first walk into our office. They are surprised by the answer that it is impossible to know the value of a case at the inception because many factors go into a determination. Some examples of factors to consider are:

  • The extent of the injuries.
  • Potential damages if the case went to trial.
  • Publicity concerns
  • Insurance coverage available
  • Loss of income   

Each case is different and there is no exact science in determining the correct value.

The importance is to have an attorney with the experience to know and understand the nuances of personal injury law.
