Factors that Help Determine if a Massachusetts Personal Injury Settlement Offer is Fair

1) It compensates for the medical treatment the injury victim had to endure;

2) It covers the medical bills and liens that must be paid out of the settlement;

3) It adequately compensates the injury victim for lost wages, and if applicable, future lost wages or impairment of earning capacity;

4) It fairly compensates for the physical pain and suffering the injuries have caused, and will cause in the future:

5) The settlement number puts the injury victim in the position they were in prior to the accident (also known as  'making the victim whole').
