Is there a formula for settling a personal injury claim? The truth is there is no such thing as formula. Obviously establishing liability on the part of the defendant is the first step. After all, if the defendant is not legal responsible for the accident, then you have no claim. However, in terms of a formula for valuating what a case is worth—well, there is no set formula. Each case depends on the particular set of facts relating to that case, such as the type of injury, the severity of the injury, the duration of your treatment and the permanency of your injury.
