Factors That Influence Settlements in Florida Personal Injury Cases

Posted on

There are numerous factors that influence settlements in Florida personal injury cases. Understanding these can help you manage your expectations and strive for a fair resolution.

 

Severity of Injuries

 

The severity of your injuries significantly impacts your settlement. More severe injuries typically lead to higher medical expenses and potentially greater losses in terms of income and quality of life.

 

Impact on Your Lifestyle

 

If your injury affects your ability to work or enjoy activities you used to, you may be entitled to compensation for ‘loss of enjoyment of life,’ which can increase your settlement.

 

Future Medical Costs

 

If you will need ongoing medical care or rehabilitation, these projected costs will be included in the settlement.

 

Your Degree of Fault

 

Florida operates under a ‘comparative fault’ system, meaning your settlement can be reduced by your degree of fault in the accident.

 

Insurance Policy Limits

 

Insurance policy limits also affect your settlement. If the at-fault party’s insurance coverage is limited, it might limit the amount you are able to recover.

 

Legal Representation

 

Having a skilled Florida personal injury lawyer can significantly influence your settlement. They can effectively negotiate with insurance companies and present your case in the best light.

Several factors influence settlements in Florida personal injury cases. Understanding these can help you advocate for fair compensation.
