Why Settlement Amounts For Similar Personal Injuries Can Vary So Much
Imagine that you and your twin are involved in a car accident. You both receive the same injuries - essentially soft-tissue damage to your back and neck that causes some bruising, swelling, and pain. When your claims are settled however, your twin receives twice the amount of damages that you receive! The reason two nearly identical people with nearly identical injuries can end up receiving vastly different settlement amounts has a lot to do with what happens after the accident.
