Factors That Affect The Value of a Personal Injury Settlement

What is the value of my personal injury settlement?

When it comes to filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Georgia, there are many variables that go into determining how much your claim is worth.

That being said, there are no two cases that are the same.

However, there will be some common factors that tend to either increase or decrease the amount of compensation you can presume to receive for your personal injury lawsuit.

Personal Injury Attorneys and insurance adjusters alike use the term “multipliers” to estimate the value of a claim. 

Below is a list of some factors that may add a higher or lower multiplier to the calculation of your lawsuit:

I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.

Higher Multipliers
  • Traumatic Brain Injury 
  • Medical Treatment by a medical doctor, clinic, hospital, or Chiropractor
  • Prescribed Medication that was related to the injury
  • Permanent Injury
  • Long-Term Injury Treatment  
  • Disruptions of Daily Life such as missed school or work 
  • Long-Term Recovery
  • Physical or Emotional Distress
Lower Multipliers
  • Soft Tissue Injury such as a bruise, sprain or strain
  • Brief Medical Attention 
  • Short Recovery Period
  • No Medication Prescribed 
  • No Permanent Injury
  • No Physical or Emotional Distress
