Personal Injury Settlement in NJ
When negotiating personal injury settlements in NJ, many factors determine whether your outcome is successful. A solid case to back your claim, excellent negotiation skills, and an accurate assessment of recoverable damages are among the most important elements that lead to getting results. At Shamy & Shamy, we are often able to settle personal injury cases outside of court. Choosing the right lawyer to sit with you at the negotiating table is an important decision.
What monetary amount in a NJ personal injury settlement is fair?
Severe injuries causing permanent disability require greater compensation awards in order to be fair. Time is often a factor before the extent of injury becomes apparent. Slow recovery, complexity of injury or treatment, along with waiting for the patient to reach maximum medical improvement (meaning the person is in the best condition possible, given the injury), affect the ability to assess damages.
In arriving at a viable figure for your NJ personal injury settlement, your lawyer takes into account all costs, present and future, including:
Pain and suffering
While some damages are easily calculated into monetary amounts, others like pain and suffering are less tangible and more open to subjective evaluation. Because an excellent personal injury attorney can appeal to a jury on damages like pain and suffering, settlement negotiations often focus on what type of award a jury could bring. Many juries award large monetary sums for pain and suffering. Consider the tragedy of a victim who lost a promising future in a high paying position because an accident left him or her with permanent brain damage.
