What damages can I recover?
A personal injury action is a lawsuit brought by someone who has been injured, either physically or mentally, as a result of another’s negligent (careless) or intentional conduct. In a personal injury case, you can recover economic and non-economic damages.
Damages for personal injury cases can include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
How Are Personal Injury Settlements Reached?
A settlement is reached when the defendant agrees to pay a specified amount in order to drop the case. In order to reach the settlement amount, both parties have to figure out how much the case is worth – in other words, what a jury would make the plaintiff pay had the case gone all the way through trial. Because there are so many factors that go into deciding how much a case is worth, there is no average “amount” for a settlement.
- Some factors that are taken into consideration include:
- The defendant’s assets
