What Factors Affect Compensation in an Injury Claim?

Injury accidents happen every day in Ives Estates, throughout Florida, and across our country. Many are left to wonder what factors affected the compensation that was awarded for their injury claim. Each case is unique, but there are some common factors that can affect the total amount you are offered, including:

  • Total medical expenses related to your injury
  • Type of injury suffered
  • Length of recovery from injury
  • Permanent side effects
  • Psychological or emotional stress caused by the injury
  • Lost wages from injury

Some factors that might cause your settlement offer to be lowered include:

  • Suffering a soft-tissue injury such as a sprain, strain or bruise
  • Greater amount of medical expenses used for diagnosis rather than treatment
  • Care sought from a professional other than a physician
  • Prescription medicine not prescribed
  • Brief treatment period
  • Short recovery time
  • No lasting side effects
  • No psychological or emotional effects

Other factors can increase the settlement you should receive and include:

  • No percentage of fault on the victim’s side for injuries suffered
  • Witnesses who confirm your story
  • Thoroughness of your claim and proof
