Is there a minimum personal injury settlement amount?
No, there is no minimum amount that a person may receive when they have been personally injured. The settlement amount is determined by a variety of factors including the medical bills, the future damages, the extent of harm, the loss in wages and the loss in future earnings.
NY Jury Verdicts; Is There a MAXIMUM Amount of Money Jury Can Give You?
NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
An injured victim who chooses to bring a lawsuit against someone who was careless for an accident or medical malpractice or even wrongful death, often wants to learn what can happen at trial.
You want to understand what the jury can and cannot do.
One question that often comes up is whether there is a maximum amount, or a ceiling upon which that they cannot give you more than that amount.
In other words, the injured victim wants to know if there is a maximum amount that the jury can award if they determine that you suffered significant harm and injury because of someone else’s carelessness.
Likewise, they will often ask if there is a minimum that they can give you.
You should know immediately that in New York, as of early 2014, there are no caps on the amount that a jury can give you in order to compensate you for your injuries.
