HOW MUCH SHOULD I ACCEPT FOR A PERSONAL INJURY SETTLEMENT?

There is no answer to this question that applies across the board to all cases. Each personal injury case is going to have its own specific set of facts that will determine how much the case is worth. Certain variables will affect the value of the case, primarily the extent of your injuries, whether you needed to have surgery, whether you have a permanent injury, and the extent to which the injury affected your life.  In some cases the value of the case may be limited by the amount of insurance coverage available.  Often it is necessary to make a decision to accept an insurance settlement, or file a lawsuit against the at fault party.  If the at fault party does not have sufficient assets from which to pay a judgment, it may not make sense to file a lawsuit because any judgment you obtain may be un-collectible.
