Personal Injury Lawsuit Settlement
How to Calculate Personal Injury Settlement Amounts
When you have suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence,
you are entitled to bring a personal injury claim for the pain and suffering
you have experienced. When you bring a personal injury lawsuit against
the person or company that caused your injury, your attorney will negotiate
a settlement for your claim or, in some cases, your attorney will go to
trial and you will be awarded damages. However, most New York personal
injury claims are settled before they reach the trial stage.
What damages can be compensated?
When you have a bodily injury claim for a personal injury settlement, the
compensation for your injuries comes in several parts. The first part
of a personal injury claim settlement is for the medical bills related
to your injury. When you seek medical treatment for your injuries, the
insurance company for the party that caused your injuries will have to
pay for your medical care.
Another portion of a personal injury settlement amount is compensation
for your pain and suffering. A pain and suffering settlement is compensation
for how the personal injury or accident affected your day to day life.
This settlement amount is usually measured in weeks, and the insurance
company or responsible party will compensate you a weekly amount for the
time that you were seeking medical treatment for your injuries.
The last portion of compensation for personal injury is comprised of other
related damages that you may have incurred. These can include things such
as lost wages when you can’t work, car rentals when you are without
a vehicle, property damage, estimated future medical expenses, or other
losses you incurred due to an accident.
Don't Settle For Less Than You Deserve
Using these three factors as a general guideline, you can see that personal
injury settlements differ greatly because every injury is different. An
experienced Brooklyn personal injury attorney can help you estimate what
your case is worth. A Brooklyn personal injury law firm can help you get
fair compensation for your personal injuries. If you don’t know
the value of your personal injury lawsuit, you will be unable to get a
maximum settlement from the insurance company. Hiring an experienced injury
lawyer is the best way to ensure that your personal injury compensation
for your pain and suffering is fair.
