As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer, a lot of people come in and ask me what factors determine how much they can receive in a personal injury claim. I tell them there are really three factors that affect that. The first is what is the nature of the extent of their injuries. Obviously, if you’ve been more seriously injured, your claim is worth more than if you’re less seriously injured. The second factor we have to look at is what are the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident. How did the accident happen? Who’s at fault? Are you partially at fault yourself? That’s the second thing we look at. The third thing we look at is what is the available insurance coverage. That often plays a very important part in determining how much you’re able to receive in compensation for your claim.
