Back injuries are very common in auto accidents and other types of personal injury cases. A large percentage of the auto tort cases our firm handles involve some type of back injury claim. In this video, we will look at the typical compensation payouts for back injuries in personal injury cases.
The key thing to understand about back injuries and their settlement value is how subjective these injuries are. You can have two patients with identical MRIs that show the exact same herniated disc, and one is in great pain and the other has no symptoms. The take-home message from this is that good lawyering and a good plaintiff make all the difference in these cases.
This page will walk you through the expected settlement compensation payouts based on the severity of the injury. But, again, it is subjective and the quality of the victim and the lawyer can make a good case turn out terrible and vice versa.
