What Type of Settlement Should I Expect in a Personal Injury Case?
When examining settlements in a personal injury case in Colorado, there are a number of factors that will be considered. The main factors to consider are your economic damages, the pain and suffering involved, and whether punitive damages will be available. The more of a financial loss you have suffered from the case, the higher your damages will be, which means the higher the claim should be. The pain and suffering endured from the case can also increase the value of your claim.
It is also important to understand that a settlement is different from a trial verdict. A settlement is when the other side agrees to pay the victim prior to the case going to court. If the parties must go to trial, a verdict will resolve the case. The verdict is decided by a jury. In some cases, trial verdicts are higher than the settlement, but the associated expense of going to court does not always make it worth it.
