Our personal injury case results display a range of different personal injury cases with variable settlements. We have had success in many cases and look forward to helping you with yours.

How Much Is the Average Personal Injury Settlement?

Personal injury cases differ significantly and rarely result in the same amount for plaintiffs. Benefits change depending on how severe an injury is, how large the defendant is, whether you take your case to trial or settle out of court, the permanence of your injuries, etc. 

Your personal injury claim could be worth a couple of thousand dollars, or it could be worth millions. One of the most crucial factors in determining your settlement is whether your legal team can defend your case. 

What Factors Determine Personal Injury Settlement Amounts?

Indiana personal injury settlements depend on a variety of factors. The details of your claim will significantly impact the amount you can recover and the time it takes. We’ve included some of the factors to consider so you can get an idea of potential jury settlements.

Insurance Policies

The liable party’s insurance company is often responsible for paying the victim’s expenses. Depending on the nature and severity of the personal injury, there may be limitations on how much the plaintiff (victim) can recover. Certain companies may be more likely to have comprehensive insurance policies for handling lawsuits. 

Special Compensatory Damages

Special compensatory damages—also known as economic damages—are monetary damages that can be quantified. The following are some examples of special damages you may be entitled to in an Indiana  personal injury case. 

  • Medical expenses/bills
  • Property damage
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of earning capacity

These values are straightforward and often come with a receipt that can be pointed to during negotiations. 

General Compensatory Damages

When it comes to determining value, general compensatory damages—also known as non-economic damages—are a little more confusing. These are intangible costs with no specific dollar amount.

  • Mental anguish
  • Physical disfigurement or pain
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional and physical pain and suffering

General damages are meant to restore a victim’s quality of life to what it was prior to the accident.

Timeline

It can be challenging to balance the timelines of Indiana personal injury cases. Insurance companies will frequently try to take advantage of your impatience. They may save money by offering you a low initial settlement to get the job done quickly. Typically, the longer you wait before accepting a settlement, the more likely you will receive fair benefits. 

On the other hand, you must ensure that you are taking the proper steps to secure the settlement promptly. If you wait too long to pursue damages, it may appear that you don’t care about your injuries as much. This argument can result in a lower settlement. 

Even if you are still recovering from your injuries, a lawyer can help you begin the process.

We will ensure that you do not take a lowball offer and help you restore your life to the way it was before. 

What if the Insurance Company Won’t Pay?

Personal injury claims typically settle without the need for a lawsuit. If the plaintiff and defendant can reach an agreement, there is no reason to take the matter to court. 

Sometimes, the defendant–or their legal team–will refuse to pay an adequate settlement. A Wilson Kehoe Winingham personal injury attorney can walk you through your legal options and help you make the best financial decisions possible.
