Google “personal injury settlement calculator.” A lot of people get on-line looking for a personal injury settlement calculator as if there is some formula that will calculate the amount of money they will get for their personal injury car accident claim.
The reality is that trying to find a calculator to determine your personal injury settlement is fool’s gold. Please trust me, if you find an answer on the Internet that values your car accident settlement, it is utter nonsense.
Generally speaking, the personal injury settlement formula for a car accident cases is:
Past and Future Medical Bills
Past and Future Lost Wages
Past and Future Pain and Suffering Damages
How does that formula apply to you? The first two you may be able to knock down pretty simply if there are no future medical bills or future lost wages. But, ultimately, the money in personal injury car accident cases is your pain and suffering damages. And there is no personal injury settlement calculator that you can find that is going to give you pain and suffering damages that are specific to you. Because each case – your case – is unique.
Our website does discuss some of the major factors of case value that apply in most personal injury cases.
If you still feel like you just need some sort of personal injury settlement calculator and you don’t care that the result that it churns out are stupid and useless of no help at all, go here. These kind folks pretend there is a formula. Granted, these people are not lawyers, they are a consulting company that presumably generates leads for accident lawyers by creating a website called… wait for it… Personal Injury Calculator.
