Auto Accident Settlement Calculator

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Auto accident victims in Maryland want an accident settlement calculator to determine the value of their case.  "What numbers do I punch in to find out how much my case should settle for with the insurance company?"  

A settlement calculator would be great in an ideal world.  We are all wired to hate uncertainty. In lab experiments, our wiring in this regard is underscored by the fact that we actually prefer physical pain to uncertainty.  

The unfortunate reality is that personal injury cases are far more complicated.   The battle over value between plainitffs and insurance companies is fought not over a settlement formula but over the nuances of the medical records including what were the injuries, how painful and life changing were/are they, and were the bills fair, reasonable and casually related to the accident.  

This just can't be reduced to a simple equation.  I wish it was.
