Personal Injury Settlement Amounts

 

In personal injury, settlement amounts can vary based on a wide variety of factors. In all cases, the amount you will be awarded at court depends on your own specific circumstances. For example, if a person has broken their leg and as a result has had to take six months off work and has not been paid for this period off work, they will be awarded compensation for their loss of earnings. By comparison, if a person suffers a broken leg and was not working at the time they suffered the accident, they are unlikely to be compensated for any loss of earnings. Therefore, the compensation an unemployed person will receive is likely to be less than that of the employed person.

As the amount awarded at court varies in personal injury, settlement amounts also vary depending on the victim's circumstances. A settlement is an agreement between parties out of court on compensation for the victim of the accident. Settlement usually occurs as a result of negotiations between the parties but can also occur as the result of alternative dispute resolution. Clearly there are complexities and specialist advice is the best course of action.
