When you get into an accident and you decide to hire a personal injury lawyer, one of the first questions you’ll have for them is, “How much do you think my settlement is worth?” To calculate this, they’ll consider a few different things regarding your accident. There are several different things that go into pain and suffering.
One of the first things they’ll take into consideration is how bad your suffering is. Short-term and soft injuries won’t hold up in court as well as hard injuries will.
Hard injuries are injuries that can be proven in a court of law. Injuries like broken bones, brain injuries, and other definable injuries. They’re taken more seriously because they cannot be disproven.
Another aspect of the accident that will be taken into consideration is who is at fault for the accident. If you hold all or most of the blame for the accident, you should not expect a settlement. On the other hand, if you can prove that the other party is at fault, there is a good chance you will receive that settlement for your pain and suffering.
