What You Can Do to Boost Your Personal Injury Settlement
Not all personal injury cases go to trial. In fact, more than 9 out of 10 do not go to trial, settling out of court instead. This means that any money you receive for your personal injuries will most likely come from a settlement instead of a jury award. This is a good thing for you because going to trial is a process that can take years, and no lawyer, no matter how skilled, can know with certainty what 12 jurors will do on any given day.
Settlements, on the other hand, are a much faster way of achieving the same goal. You also have the added benefit of having your attorney negotiate for you with the other party rather than just convincing 12 strangers that you deserve money. Your lawyer will work with you to increase the amount of settlement as much as possible. But there are some things that you can do to help yourself increase your settlement.

The first thing that you can do to increase your settlement is to document everything. From the moment that you are injured until your case is over, any time that you feel pain, are prevented from doing something you wanted to do because of your injuries, go to the doctor, or anything out of the ordinary, you should document it by taking notes or saving receipts or medical records.
You should also make sure to go to the doctor for any pain that you have whatsoever. This is because doctors always create detailed records, and they are required by law to give you your records on demand, which means that you will always have detailed records to help your case.
Identify Evidence that You Would Use at Trial
Another thing that you can do to help your case is identify the strengths of your case should you go to trial. This helps you in 2 ways. First, it “scares” the other party by showing them that you are likely to win if the case goes to trial, so they should settle now and maybe save some money. Second, it helps you and your lawyer understand the true value of your case to make sure that you are not shortchanged by the other party.
If you collect the evidence together, you will be able to show the other party that it is in their best interest to settle your case. Most of the time, the amount of the settlement depends heavily on your probability of success if you go to trial because if this probability is very low, the other party will be unlikely to pay a large amount when there is a good chance that they could pay you nothing.

Discuss All Offers with Your Lawyer
If you have retained a lawyer, the other party will make all settlement offers through them. Your lawyer has an obligation to tell you about any settlement offer that they receive, even if they think it is way too low. The best thing that you can do for yourself is to listen to your attorney. Your lawyer knows how much your case is likely worth, and they know if a settlement offer is good or not.
While the ultimate decision of whether to settle is yours and yours alone, you have hired a lawyer for a reason, and one of the biggest benefits of having a lawyer is the professional legal advice that they provide to you. Before accepting or declining any settlement amount, make sure to talk to your lawyer and ask them any questions that you might have.

Another thing that you can do to increase your settlement is to bring your receipts. If you have paid any money for anything whatsoever that is even slightly related to your personal injury case, you should bring it to the negotiating table. Essentially, your goal is to offer a very high settlement, hopefully making the other party raise their offer to meet you in the middle.
This means that any time that you missed work because of the accident, any damage to your car, any medical injuries, or any other money that you have paid because of the injury should be brought to your lawyer’s attention. Remember, evidence is like ammunition for a lawyer, and without it, your lawyer will be shooting blanks.
