Injury lawyers are a special type of lawyer that specializes in injury cases. They are able to help you get a settlement that will help you to recover from your injury, pay your associated medical bills, and also help you to take the time off work to get better. Lawyers know how to calculate your settlement based on a few different factors.
The first is the actual injury. If you are physically injured you are going to get money based on that physical injury. If you were mentally injured or traumatized, your payout will be reflected in that.
Your lawyer will look at the actual costs that you are going to be dealing with, things like the overall medical bills that you have, the overall amount of time that you have to take off work, and more. This is going to be the total amount of your bills. Your lawyer will then use a multiple of this amount to help create the entire settlement amount. This will vary depending on each individual case. It is not something that is going to be a blanket amount for all cases, these amounts will vary and your attorney will work to get you the best settlement possible.
