The settlement was a significant relief for John and his family, as it allowed them to provide the care and support that he needed to recover from his injuries.
According to the IRC, the average time it takes to settle a bodily injury claim is 11.5 months, and settlements can range from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars.
The settlement also provided compensation for the emotional trauma and pain and suffering that John and his family endured as a result of the accident.
The IRC reports that pain and suffering damages typically range from 1.5 to 5 times the amount of medical expenses, which can significantly increase the total payout. While the settlement cannot undo the damage that was done, it allowed John and his family to move forward and focus on rebuilding their lives, which is crucial in the aftermath of a serious car accident.
