Because each case is unique, the answer to this is not ‘one-size-fits-all’. Usually, settlement worth is factored into two main categories:

Let’s look at subcategories that determine the value of a settlement in an accident:

Again, each accident is unique due to the variance in damages and injuries. Because these factors directly impact settlement, determining the exact value of a settlement is virtually impossible without knowing all of the variables. It is safe to say, however, that the greater the economic and non-economic losses attributable to the accident, the greater the value of the settlement overall.
