Different Factors That Determine Personal Injury Settlements

There is no absolute rule for calculating personal injury settlements, and deciding upon an appropriate amount is done on a case-by-case basis, depending on a number of factors. When deciding on the amount of a personal injury settlement, judges and juries usually consider the following:Injury Attorneys

Severity and permanence of injury. Minor injuries that will heal quickly and completely may not receive as much compensation as injuries that will affect a plaintiff’s quality of life for years to come. Additionally, if the injury is very painful, or if treatment for it will be very painful, compensation may increase.
Cost of medical treatment. Medical bills are a very real economic cost that deserves full compensation. In addition to providing payment for present medical treatment, personal injury settlements usually include compensation for future medical treatment as well.
Income loss. While some accident victims can return to their previous employment, others are not so lucky, and some may only be able to work part time. In an effort to return the plaintiff to the standard of living he would have enjoyed if he had not been injured, personal injury settlements compensate for both present and future loss of income.
Effect on household duties. A car accident doesn’t just affect the victim; it also affects his family. For example, if a man is injured in a car accident and can no longer play as much of a role in the upbringing of his children as he previously did, he deserves compensation for this loss. Similarly, if he can no longer help around the home and must therefore hire someone to perform the same work, compensation may be available for these costs as well.

Many factors can influence the size of a personal injury settlement, depending on the injuries suffered and the victim’s situation. If you’ve been in an accident in the New Port Richey area and would like to discuss compensation you might be entitled to, call (727) 849-5353 today to schedule a consultation with a lawyer at Lucas, Green & Magazine. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you receive the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.

What Exactly Is Whiplash?

Soft tissue injuries may be difficult to detect and treat, but that doesn’t make them any less painful. In this video, you’ll learn a bit about one of the most common soft tissue injuries sustained by victims of car accidents: whiplash.

Generally, doctors can do little more than prescribe pain relievers to treat the pain, swelling, and headaches of whiplash. In some cases, this type of injury may even render a sufferer temporarily unable to work.

If you’re suffering from whiplash or another personal injury after a car accident, you need to concentrate on recuperating—not dealing with your insurance company. Personal injury lawyers with Lucas, Green & Magazine can help you during this difficult time by working with your insurance company to get payment for your medical bills and lost wages. To schedule a consultation to discuss your situation in New Port Richey, call (727) 849-5353
