Many factors go into determining the amount of a personal injury settlement. At a minimum, a good settlement must cover all past and future injury-related expenses. Some other factors that determine how much of a settlement you may get if you work with a New York City lawyer include:
  • The type of accident that caused the injury. Under New York’s no-fault law, auto insurance companies are required to pay up to $50,000 for economic and medical losses, but they don’t provide for pain and suffering, so only permanent injury cases can recover more than $50,000. Injuries caused by things other than auto accidents won’t be affected.
  • The type and severity of injuries. Permanent and serious injuries are eligible for higher settlements than injuries a person can recover from.
  • Comparable fault. If you are found partially at fault for the accident that caused your injuries, the settlement may be reduced by your percentage of fault.
If you need a car accident lawyer or any other type of personal injury lawyer, contact Goidel & Siegel. Insurance companies and defense counsels take us more seriously because they know we’re willing to go to court if they don’t offer a good settlement.
Personal injury payouts vary widely based on a number of factors, including:
  • The severity and type of injuries. Serious or permanent injuries and wrongful death generally qualify for larger payouts than for temporary or minor injuries.
  • The type of accident. For car accidents, New York has a no-fault law where motorists are required to carry a minimum of $25,000 or a maximum of $50,000 of Personal Injury Protection insurance. Since insurance will cover those amounts automatically, the rest of your payout will likely be smaller than if you were injured in a non-auto accident.
  • Comparable fault. You may be found partially at fault for the accident that caused your injuries. If so, the amount of your payout may be reduced by your percentage of fault.
At Goidel & Siegel, our personal injury lawyers have tons of experience getting accident victims the compensation they deserve. Talk to a New York City lawyer by contacting Goidel & Siegel today. 
While it’s difficult to quantify a person’s pain and suffering into a dollar amount, there are two main ways to determine pain and suffering compensation. An experienced auto accident lawyer (such as the personal injury lawyers at Goidel & Siegel) will be able to help you get an idea of how much your pain and suffering may be worth. In New York, the multiplier method is the more common technique used. With this method, the total amount of economic damages - such as medical bills and lost wages - is multiplied by a number that typically ranges from 1.5 to 5. The more severe the injuries, the higher the multiplier. The other method for determining pain and suffering is the per diem method, which provides a dollar amount of compensation - usually based on the person’s wages - for each day the victim remains injured.

We obtained a $2,100,000 Construction Injury Settlement for Our Client

Our client fell from scaffolding and sheet metal landed on his knee, causing a nondisplaced fracture, torn meniscus and torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which ultimately required total knee replacement. He also developed a post-operative infection that required further hospitalization. On appeal, the plaintiff was granted summary judgment on liability pursuant to Labor Law §240(1).
