How Much Can I Get For My Personal Injury Claim?

On behalf of greg

Nobody wants to experience an injury, but there are times when the careless or negligent actions of another person can cause you harm. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., our qualified and experienced team thoroughly understands how to help people with their personal injury claims. Our personal injury attorneys in Philadelphia are commonly asked how much a personal injury claim is worth. This is a difficult question to answer, as each case is different.

The amount will vary based on several factors

The total amount of money a person receives for a personal injury claim will vary depending on several factors pertaining to their case. No two personal injury cases are the same, so giving an average is not fair to anybody researching this question. What is important is looking at the factors that affect the value of a claim. In these cases, we want to look at a few different things, including:

  • Types and severity of injuries: One of the biggest factors influencing a personal injury claim will be the severity and nature of the injuries. More serious injuries will obviously lead to higher medical bills. They can also lead to additional expenses such as lost income if a victim cannot work.
  • Insurance policy limits: An insurance settlement is largely going to be affected by the at-fault party’s insurance policy limits. An insurance carrier is not going to make a settlement offer that is more than what the policy limits are.

Will the case go to trial?

The outcome of a personal injury case can be significantly influenced by the victim securing a personal injury attorney to handle the case. An attorney can help during the negotiation process with the insurance carrier and they will also be ready to file a personal injury lawsuit if necessary. If an insurance carrier refuses to offer a fair settlement or denies a claim, it may be necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party and the insurer.

Your attorney will evaluate your case to determine whether or not they think you will be able to secure more money by filing a personal injury lawsuit. There are risks and benefits to this route that need to be discussed with a professional with extensive experience in personal injury law.
