For relatively minor injuries with no ongoing complications, such as a neck or back injury, the average settlement will tend to be low. For more substantial orthopedic injuries that necessitate surgery, physical therapy, or ongoing care, settlements can be substantially better. I have been handling personal injury claims for four decades and it is very important that an injured person makes sure all medical bills are paid before you settle with the negligent driver’s insurance company. The medical care providers should confirm in writing that the bills are paid in full. Please call David Polow for a free consultation about how much money you might be entitled to.
