All Cases Big and Small: What’s the Line Between a High and Low-Value Personal Injury Case?

Posted by John D'Intino Jr.Jun 01, 20220 Comments

If you or a loved one is suffering a personal injury, you've got a lot on your plate.

You're trying to recuperate in the safest, healthiest way possible, but the economic damages you incur make it stressful. You may be watching bills stack up, either as a direct result of your injury or because you cannot go to work right now.

As you're recovering and calculating how much money you'll need to cover everything, you may wonder: Is your case considered high-value? Is the number you're coming to a big one, or is it relatively small — and what impact will that have on the likelihood of winning the compensation you require?

What's a High-Value Personal Injury Case?

Some factors that may cause your personal injury case settlement to skyrocket include:

  • Catastrophic injuries you sustain (e.g., traumatic brain injuries or permanent disfigurements)
  • Low insurance coverage on the part of those responsible
  • The duration, cost, and associated pain and suffering you endure
  • The number of people affected by your injuries (e.g., if you are the primary wage-earner for your family)
  • Wrongful death

If any of these apply to your personal injury case, you could be looking at a larger settlement. The larger the settlement, the higher the stakes for your case. You'll need to make sure a skilled personal injury lawyer is working with you to increase your chances of winning.

What's a Low-Value Personal Injury Case?

One answer to this question is simple: Cases that don't involve many of the abovementioned factors could be considered low-value.

Some firms may deem non-permanent, non-fatal injuries low-value or have some arbitrary financial threshold (say, $30,000) separating high and low personal injury cases.
