In many personal injury cases the victim seeks financial compensation for injuries sustained, as well as pain and suffering and loss of wages, when applicable. Personal injury cases often include placing fault on an individual or entity for causing a personal injury through an action or inaction, when they were responsible for those actions.
A personal injury calculator may be used to determine the financial award granted in personal injury cases. In general, jurisdictions have limits on what amount may be awarded for personal injury cases based on the type of injuries sustained and the length of recovery time.
The personal injury calculator may help the courts to determine the final award based on such factors. Although limits have been imposed on personal injury cases, judges may have some discretion in awarding dollar amounts in extreme cases.
