How much is a personal injury claim worth?

You were attempting to cross the street when a vehicle came flying through the intersection. You had no chance to get out of the way, and you ended up involved in a pedestrian accident.

You know from the diagnoses that you received that you are going to have months, if not years, of recovery ahead of you between the head injuries, broken bones and spinal wounds. You need to know that the other party is going to be held accountable for those expenses, but will you be able to get everything you need?

There is no set value in a personal injury case

There is no guarantee on how much you'll be awarded in a personal injury case, but the likelihood that you'll receive what you need is much higher if the other party has insurance coverage.

The claim itself depends on the circumstances that led to the crash and the injuries that you suffered. For instance, if you walk in front of a vehicle but are in a crosswalk, you may share some fault. Your award might be lowered, but you'd still receive much of what you need. In your case, when you're walking across a street in a crosswalk and when you're given the signal to do so, the driver is clearly at fault. They should pay 100 percent of what they're ordered to pay to you.

It's a good idea to sit down with your attorney to discuss how much money you're going to spend on medical care, how much you've lost in your wages and discuss other financial information that supports your case for compensation from the other party's insurance company.
