You can ask for almost any amount but only get what the jury thinks your case is worth. Doctors and your lawyer get paid first and you get what's left. There have been so many of these cases, you will be lucky to get a few thousand since fraud is rampant and your peers know this unless you have injuries that show on an x-ray.

Your rt wrist was broken in auto accident they ran a red light at hit you doctor says your hand will never be the same how much settlement could you expect?

It seems from your description of your road traffic accident that your solicitor should have no problem in establishing legal fault of the driver who caused your injuries. The question is therefore "how much compensation is your wrist and hand injury worth?". In the UK there are two main parts to your compensation settlement - financial losses (such as lost income and medical expenses) and pain and suffering. Your wrist and hand injury must be evaluated by a medical expert instructed by your lawyer to establish the medical description of your injury from which your solicitor can calculate how much compensation you should receive. Please see the related links entitled "wrist injury compensation" and "hand injury claims" to see examples of compensation amounts for all manner of hand and wrist injuries.

How much can i receive from a back injury in an auto accident?

There is no one amount you can get for a certain type of case and that you can not use a simple formula to find out how much your claim is worth. A settlement is most often determined when the insurance company and the attorney try to predict what a jury would award the client.Other factors that come into play when rewarding the plaintiff in a car accident case involve the severity of the injury, how bad the impact of the car crash was, the length of treatment for the injury, the amount of permanent tissue damage done, how much work was missed, how much pay was lost, how it affected the lifestyle and the ability to work of the individual, and what kind of job they had if it was permanently lost due to the injuries.

Do i have to get a lawyer if the car accident was not my fault?

ANSWERIt is recommended. Accident liability is not something a person should handle on their own, unless you really know the laws and all related dealings and procedures.As the first answer suggests it is advisable to use a specialist lawyer, but in the UK there are some practicalities relating to legal costs which you first consider. If your claim for personal injury is worth over £1000 or your overall claim is worth over £5000 (including vehicle damage) you are entitled to claim your lawyer's fees as well as your compensation from the person at fault. This will allow your lawyer to offer a "no win no fee" agreement. Any less than these sums and your legal costs will not be paid and will likely be more than the compensation you are entitled to. See the related link entitled "accident solicitor" for a full description on how to know how much your claim is worth before deciding on whether to use a personal injury lawyer or not.
