The average personal injury settlement in Florida is not a figure we can reliably share. There is simply not enough available data to say with certainty what the average injury settlement is worth. Even if we had this information, it would be of little value to you.

The truth is that every personal injury settlement happens in a vacuum. Your circumstances are entirely unique, and the value of your recoverable damages does not depend on the value of other peoples’ settlements. So long as you hire a qualified Florida personal injury lawyer, they will calculate your damages accurately and fight for the compensation you deserve. 

Here’s What Could Determine the Value of Your Injury Settlement

Florida personal injury lawyers know that no two clients have the exact same injuries, mental health difficulties, or damages. Each case stands on its own, and some factors that may affect the value of your settlement include:

Your Injuries

The details of a plaintiff’s injuries are always relevant to a personal injury attorney. Specifically, your lawyer will need to know:

  • What kind of injuries you’ve suffered because of someone’s negligence and the extent of the harm
  • The specific classification of each injury
  • The symptoms resulting from your injuries
  • The cost of all diagnostic care and treatment for your injuries

Your attorney will work closely with your doctors to determine the nature of your injuries and the cost of related medical care.

Your Recovery Timetable, Including Disabling Injuries

Your timeline for recovery will determine how long you must receive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and other injury-related services. Generally, the longer you need treatment, the more expensive your settlement may become. However, it’s important to note that the situation is not always so simple.

If you have disabling injuries, as the National Safety Council (NSC) explains, the cost of your settlement will likely increase significantly. A disabling injury may not only require long-term or lifelong care but can also inflict debilitating pain and suffering on the person dealing with lifelong complications. 

Your Psychological and Emotional State

Pain and suffering is a common damage in personal injury settlements. Therefore, your psychological and emotional response to a harmful event (like an auto accident or fall) is relevant as your lawyer calculates your settlement value. 

Your lawyer will consider:

  • The severity of your physical pain (which is a consideration in one’s pain and suffering)
  • Emotional distress
  • Any diagnosed conditions, like anxiety and PTSD, that are part of your case
  • The cost of treatment for your pain and suffering
  • Your response to treatment, as this may indicate the timetable for overcoming your pain and suffering

A mental health professional may play a key role in helping your lawyer evaluate your pain and suffering.

The Way in Which Your Injury Happened

The story behind your injuries is relevant to your settlement demands because:

  • You may have property expenses, like vehicle repairs, that factor into the settlement value
  • If someone is solely at fault for your injuries, that is relevant to how much money they (or their insurer) should pay you
  • A lawyer must always have full information when calculating a settlement, as even seemingly minor details can be relevant

Your lawyer from our team knows what to do. Simply retain us to fight for a fair personal injury settlement and we will handle the rest, including the accurate calculation of your damages.

Damages Your Personal Injury Attorney Will Seek Compensation For

Any fair personal injury settlement in Florida should cover the plaintiff’s:

  • Pain and suffering, including anxiety, depression, physical pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, lost quality of life, sleep disturbances, and other non-economic harm
  • Professional damages, as injuries can lead to lost income, diminished earning power, lost bonuses, lost overtime pay, and other career-related harm
  • Property expenses, which are particularly common in auto accident cases where plaintiffs need to repair or replace vehicles
  • Medical expenses, which are always a consideration when someone suffers injuries

If you have any other damages, a lawyer from our team will identify them. We will determine the value of all recoverable damages and present our settlement demands to liable parties.

Is It Worth Hiring a Lawyer to Seek a Fair Injury Settlement?

We believe firmly that it is worth hiring a personal injury lawyer when you want a fair financial recovery because:

  • Attorneys are already familiar with insurance claims and lawsuits, while you may not be
  • A lawyer is able to seamlessly transition from an insurance claim to a lawsuit, which pursuing a lawsuit may be immensely difficult for you to do on your own
  • Law firms use a client-friendly fee structure that requires no upfront or out-of-pocket compensation from you
  • Your injuries, psychological distress, and emotional anguish may prevent you from handling your own case

A lawyer is also a layer of protection between you and anyone who wants to undermine your case, including insurance companies. Your lawyer’s direct dealings with these parties, as well as their advice, will ensure your case is free from others’ bad-faith tactics.
