Every case is different and depends on its own facts, so the amount of compensation YOU receive is dependent on the specific facts of YOUR case. The primary considerations are:
(1) The extent of your injuries and your long term prognosis, including whether you will require future medical treatment or care. This is primarily determined by your doctors and other experts.
(2) How the accident has affected your income and whether it will continue to affect your earnings in the future.
(3) Whether or not it is clear that the other person or business was at fault in causing the accident and whether there are any aggravating circumstances like a driver being drunk (drunk driver) or on a cell phone.
(4) How much insurance coverage the other driver has and how much insurance coverage you have.
