Every personal injury case is different, so there is no baseline for the settlement a claimant may receive. There are a variety of factors that personal injury lawyers, jurors, insurance companies and other parties may use to determine injury and accident settlements and verdicts. Some of the factors that could help determine the value of your case include:
- The extent of your injuries and their permanency
- The availability of insurance coverage
- The degree of liability of all involved parties
- The amount of property damage, current medical expenses, lost wages, & future costs
- The type of case
While a significant part of most personal injury settlements typically covers the cost of past and future medical expenses, loss of income, and other economic damages, there may be other losses to include. Many accident cases also include non-economic damages, which compensate for the psychological impact the incident had on the claimant and their loved ones. These damages focus on the physical and emotional pain you have suffered and may continue to suffer due to your injuries that resulted from your accident. There is no average compensation or amount for pain and suffering, but the consideration of these factors may increase the amount of your settlement.
When it comes to determining the settlement range for your case, our injury lawyers review these factors, related medical records, liability and related damages. Moving forward, our Virginia personal injury attorneys could work with you to get the verdict and settlement you need.
When it comes to personal injury claims, each type of case is handled and settled differently. For example, in a car accident case, the settlement typically relies on the damage to your vehicle, location of the accident, extent of your injuries, and those of any passengers. Insurance also plays a significant role in these claims. Sometimes the at-fault driver may not have enough insurance to cover for all of your losses, and as a result, your attorney may need to take a different approach. Alternatively, if an uninsured driver was at-fault in an accident, this can have a significant impact on your potential settlement.
On the other hand, in a brain injury case, future expenses must be considered when calculating a fair settlement. A traumatic brain injury can have life-altering consequences that have significant future medical costs and may result in a claimant being unable to work. The attorneys at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers understand the nuances to various types of personal injury cases and could calculate a proper settlement that covers all potential losses.
In Virginia, there are no limits or set damage caps on a majority of standard personal injury cases. This means there is no maximum settlement amount that an injured party could receive in their personal injury claim. However, there are exceptions to this in certain circumstances. Additionally, in the case of punitive damages, there is a cap of $350,000. It is important to know that punitive damages are rarely incorporated into most personal injury cases.
