What’s My Personal Injury Case Worth?
There’s no set settlement value for personal injury cases. Every accident, every incident resulting in injury or death is different. Every victim is incredibly unique.
In turn, the specific details and circumstances of your situation will dictate the amount of money you may be able to recover in a personal injury lawsuit.
- How old are you?
- How has your earning capacity changed since you were injured?
- Are you able to continue working since the accident?
- What types of injuries have you sustained?
- Have you been diagnosed with a permanent impairment or disability?
- What steps did you take to mitigate your injuries?
- Has the injury aggravated a pre-existing medical condition?
- Do you share responsibility for the accident or resulting trauma?
- What are the emotional and psychological ramifications of your accident?
The more your life changes – and the higher your related costs – the more you can generally expect your personal injury case to be worth.
Of course, hiring an attorney can help you win your case and maximize your financial recovery. The insurance industry acknowledges that plaintiffs who seek legal counsel not only win more often, but tend to win awards up to three-and-a-half times higher than those who don’t.

Damages Available to Accident Victims
As the victim of an avoidable injury, you can generally recover compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are broken down into two categories: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages, which are sometimes also referred to as pecuniary damages, are intended to make you financially whole.
Compensation can include money for verifiable (or projectable) monetary costs and losses, such as:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Nursing assistance
- Lost wages and income
- Lost job benefits
- Reduced earning capacity
Non-economic damages, also known as non-pecuniary awards, are intended to make up for the difficult-to-value trauma and life changes you experience.
Compensation can include money for:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
In some situations, a jury may decide that an award of punitive damages is appropriate, too. Punitive damages are reserved for situations when a defendant has clearly displayed a conscious disregard for a person’s safety or caused intentional harm.
How Can Shared Affect Impact a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Accidents can be complicated and, in some cases, more than one person’s negligence can be a contributing factor. When you contribute to an accident in which you are injured, your state’s contributory fault laws will play an important role in how much – if any – compensation you’ll be able to receive in a third party claim.
In contributory negligence states – including Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, and Washington, D.C. – sharing any responsibility for an accident is an automatic bar to recovery.
In pure comparative negligence states – including California, Florida, Missouri, and New York – damages are reduced in direct proportion to degree of fault.
In modified comparative negligence states – including Delaware, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia – damages are reduced up until liability exceeds a set threshold. Some states have a 50 percent bar to recovery, while others have a 51 percent limitation. Once liability exceeds the established bar, damages are disallowed.
Don’t let an insurance company or corporation point fingers and attempt to shift blame to you without justification. Put an experienced personal injury lawyer from Bailey Glasser, LLP in your corner to protect you. We’ll anticipate victim-blaming tactics and fight for you at every turn.
