How much should you expect for your hand or finger injury traffic accident claim? Clearly, it depends on the type of injury.Statistics on Hand Injury Claims
The average jury verdict in finger and hand injuries is approximately $630,000. This is national data over the last 10 years. The median [what is a median?] is approximately $70,000. What does this tell us? It means that there are a lot of very large hand injury cases that are life altering that have extremely high values and a lot of smaller cases that are serious yet not catastrophic.Sample Verdicts and Settlements in Hand and Finger Injury Cases
The problem with looking at settlement and verdict statistics is that you have no idea where you fit into the statistics. You can't possibly know where your injury fits in the big picture.
Below is a list of verdicts and settlements in hand injury cases to give you a better idea of the values of these cases. Some of these verdicts are Miller & Zois verdicts. Others were handled by other lawyers in Maryland and around the country.
The hope is that this gives you a little better idea of the value of your case because you can compare your claim to others and make a reasonable comparison.
That said, you should go down this path with great caution. First, we are cherry picking good verdicts so the verdict might not be reflective of the average value of your case. Second, there are so many variables that go into the value of a case, it is hard to put those pieces together in a short little summary. It could very well be that the biggest factor in the verdict or settlement is a fact that is not listed in this summary.
With those caveats, here are some example verdicts:Contact Us
