People tend to have many questions they want answers to when they are finding out more about injury claims. For example, one of the more frequently-asked questions is this: “How much do injury claims usually receive?”
It’s understandable that people would want to know how much they might get for their injuries. However, while it might sound like evasion, it is very difficult to provide an exact amount without having all the details from one case. This is because every accident and every injury is different.
How much do injury claims get for mild or serious injuries?
When considering a settlement for a successful claim, the seriousness of each injury suffered by the claimant will be assessed. There are guidelines for lawyers who deal in such cases, so they can ensure people who suffered the same severity of injury to the same part of the body get roughly the same in compensation. This makes it fair to everyone.
Thus, if you suffered three separate injuries to your body in a car accident, each of those injuries will be assessed individually. The likely outcome for your recovery will also be considered. An injury that heals quickly with no lasting ill-effects will receive an amount in line with the guidelines for that injury and that part of the body. If lasting effects are seen or expected, a greater sum could potentially be agreed on. If the injury will lead to the person experiencing problems for the rest of their life, the award will reflect this.
