As with any injury, each person’s case is different. You can’t simply say that you heard on the internet that someone in San Francisco got $5 million so your case must be worth that too. For all you know, a tractor-trailer driver was snorting crack when he crashed into a Kia and a girl is now brain damaged. So you can’t find the answer on the internet or by asking your friends. Different juries in different cities and states award different amounts of money, depending on the facts of the particular case.
And contrary to popular belief, there is no one size fits all formula like 3 X MBs (medical bills). Also beware of online calculators that claim they can tell you how much your case is worth since they are inflated and marketing tools for attorneys who promise these big results.
There are local and national reporting services that our office subscribes to that report how much money people receive if they take their case to trial including Verdict Search and Jury Verdict Research. JVR reports that the average for all concussion cases in the United States is $33,423 and the mean verdict (i.e. one-half of verdicts are more and one-half are less) is about $11,000.
However, in major cases, we have seen verdicts exceeding one million, especially involving 18 wheelers, severe crashes, emergency treatment, MRIs and other tests confirming a traumatic brain injury, other major injuries (it is rare for there only to be a concussion), enormous medical bills, and expert testimony from neurologists and other doctors.
We also subscribe to Trial Report Service which lists the jury verdicts each week in Tarrant and Dallas Counties and share these results with our clients when we are formulating our strategy.
