What sort of things will your personal injury jury look at when deciding the amount of money to award?

Posted by Guy DiMartino | Mar 29, 2015 | 0 Comments

If you were injured in an accident and the jury finds the other person is responsible for your injuries, the jurors will look at these eight areas to determine how much money you deserve. Here are the eight instructions the judge will give your jury.

  1. the nature and extent of the injuries and the effect of the injuries on the plaintiff's ability to function as a whole person;
  2. whether the injuries are temporary or permanent;
  3. the value of lost time or lost earnings and loss or impairment of earning capacity;
  4. the physical pain and mental suffering plaintiff has experienced and will experience in the future as a result of the injuries;
  5. the reasonable value of necessary medical care, treatment, and services plaintiff incurred and will incur in the future as a result of the injuries;
  6. the aggravation of a previous injury or condition;
  7. the disfigurement and or deformity resulting from the injuries; and
  8. the life expectancy of plaintiff.

So here you have the factors that your jury will consider when deciding how much money to award you in your Indiana personal injury matter.
