Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Settlements
What is the difference between a personal injury settlement and trial?
A personal injury settlement is an amount that is agreed upon outside of the court between both of the parties involved. A personal injury trial involves an outcome that is much less predictable than a settlement outcome because it is a decision that is made by the court of law. Personal injury trials tend to be much more expensive in comparison to injury settlements.
How much should I ask for in a personal injury settlement?
In a personal injury claim, the financial responsibility rests on the person or company whose negligence led to your injury. Most personal injury settlement processes begin with a demand letter. It’s important to state the dollar amount in your demand letter at a price that is higher than what you think your claim is worth. That way, you can anticipate receiving a fair amount with the insurance adjuster’s come back with a counter-offer. It is generally recommended to request a payment that is 75%-100% more than what you think your claim is worth.
