Personal Injury Settlement Calculator Tells You How Much Money You Can Get!

Why Use the HURT911® Personal Injury Settlement Calculator

The HURT911® personal injury settlement calculator can be used as a settlement calculator for a car accident or a settlement calculator for any kind of accident.

Our personal injury settlement calculator is the only calculator that does not collect your personal information! If you were injured in an accident in New York and would like a free consultation, just call us at 1-800-HURT-9111-800-487-8911.

Other personal injury settlement calculators are designed to collect your information to sell to several lawyers so they can call, text, and email you.

What the Personal Injury Settlement Calculator From HURT911® Does

The HURT911® Personal Injury settlement calculator will do the following:

When to Use the HURT911® Personal Injury Settlement Calculator

  • When you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer.
  • During the course of your personal injury case, when considering a settlement offer.
  • While you’re waiting for your personal injury settlement check as a personal injury attorney fee calculator to calculate the attorney fee, or
  • After you received your personal injury settlement check as a personal injury attorney fee calculator to calculate the attorney fee.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Take From Your Settlement?

The HURT911® Personal Injury Settlement Calculator will calculate how much money you will get once you know the settlement amount and will tell you how much a personal injury attorney will take from your settlement.

Personal Injury lawyers in New York charge a legal fee of 1/3 (33.3333%) of the money obtained from you. Our settlement calculator has a default of 1/3 legal fee but allows you to choose 40% which is the legal fee in some other states. Personal Injury lawyers in New York are not allowed to charge a legal fee of more than 1/3 (33.3333%).

Personal injury settlement calculator calculates how much money can you get from a personal injury case after lawyer fees. Maybe enough to fill these money bags.

How Online Personal Injury Settlement Calculators Calculate Settlement Value

Personal injury calculators online will give you a settlement value but they are worthless and are only designed to get your information to sell to a personal injury lawyer.

We get emails every day from companies trying to sell us leads obtained from people using personal injury settlement value calculators. Some personal injury settlement value calculators are used on lawyer’s websites to obtain your information for themselves.

Personal injury settlement value calculators online ask you to fill out the following information:

  • % You Were at Fault
  • Medical Expenses
  • Property Damage
  • Lost Wages/Lost Income
  • Estimated Future Medical Expenses
  • Estimated Future Lost Income, and
  • Multiplier for General Damages

Percent You Were at Fault

This question is rather useless because many of our clients thought they were at fault when we were able to prove someone else was at fault.

Medical Expenses

The total amount of your medical expenses is an amount used by inexperienced personal injury lawyers and is asked when filling out a calculator to use it with a multiplier to calculate your case value. See below why a multiplier values your case way too little.

Additionally, if your accident was somewhat recent, your medical expenses may not be very much.

Property Damage

The amount of property damage is a very small amount compared you the value of your pain and suffering and is, therefore, irrelevant to determine settlement value.

Lost Earnings/Lost Income

Again, lost wages or income is usually a lot less than the value of your pain and suffering and is, therefore, irrelevant to determine settlement value.

Estimated Future Medical Expenses

There is no way you will be able to estimate the amount of your future medical expenses. We use an expert to determine that.

Estimated Future Lost Income

There is no way you will be able to estimate the amount of your future lost wages or income. We use an expert to determine that.

Multiplier for General Damage

Beware of the multiplier! The multiplier multiplies the “special” or economic damages by a number from 3 to 5 to come up with a settlement value. You may be asked to enter the number or you may not see it and the calculator will do it in the background.

Insurance company claim reps use a multiplier to offer you a very low settlement. The multiplier offers “proof” of settlement value but this is bullshit. You cannot determine injury value or case value using a multiplier. If you do, you will settle for much less than your case is worth.

For instance, if your leg was amputated, your hospital expenses may be only $80,000. An online personal injury calculator using a multiplier of 4 will show your case could be worth $320,000 but an amputated leg is worth from $7,000,000 to $27,000,000.

Unfortunately, there is no free or paid personal injury settlement calculator available to the public online or to lawyers that will indicate either what your personal injury case is worth or the value of your injury.

Can an Online Personal Injury Settlement Calculator Tell You the Correct Settlement Value?

No. Personal Injury Settlement Calculators cannot tell you how much your case is worth. It is impossible. Not even artificial intelligence can ever decide how much a case is worth. It’s like examining art to decide if it’s an important work or not. You’ll never get everyone to agree!

Online personal injury settlement calculators look at only 7 or 8 points of facts but there are several hundred points of facts with a myriad of answers that must be considered to calculate the settlement value of a personal injury case. It’s just too difficult to assign a value to each one.

Besides the fact that hundreds or even thousands of facts determine the value, a personal injury settlement calculator cannot know the negotiating ability of your personal injury lawyer.

Additionally, no personal injury lawyer can estimate settlement value at the beginning of a case. Even if the lawyer knows the value of an obviously serious injury such as someone who became a quadriplegic which could be worth $50 Million or lost a leg which could be worth $12 Million, there is no way to know at the beginning of a case how much insurance or assets are available.

Injuries usually get worse over time increasing settlement value and many other facts must be investigated. We have had many clients who had surgery one or two years after an accident when their injury became worse and the settlement value increase by a million dollars.

That’s why our calculator will not tell you what your personal injury case is worth or the value of your injury. Our calculator will tell you what you will get from your personal injury case assuming several facts.

Computer Software Programs That Estimate Personal Injury Settlement Value

There aren’t any sophisticated worthwhile personal injury settlement calculators available to the public. There is one called Colossus, created by Allstate, that is available only to insurance companies. There used to be another one available to anyone willing to buy it. But both  Colossus and the other personal injury settlement software are worthless.

Colossus – Personal Injury Settlement Value Software Used by Insurance Companies

Allstate made the most sophisticated attempt to build a personal injury settlement value calculator called Colossus but Colossus has three problems that cheat you.

  1. Colossus can be manipulated.
  2. Colossus is designed by an insurance company to benefit insurance companies.
  3. Colossus is still a computer program that can’t doesn’t take into account every single fact and nuance of a personal injury case.

Read what a former Allstate claims manager said about how Colossus is manipulated.

Personal Injury Settlement Value Software for Lawyers

I used to pay an expensive annual fee to use a personal injury settlement calculator that also was a  sophisticated computer software program similar to Colossus.

Made for personal injury lawyers, defense lawyers, and insurance companies, the personal injury settlement software was created by a jury verdict research company but they stopped selling it years ago.

The software required entering several hundred pieces of data about a case and it would print a lengthy report showing settlement values at various times during the course of the personal injury case. The settlement value changes during the timeline of a personal injury case.

The calculator provided settlement values roughly 50% lower than my average settlement so I used the calculator to print a  report to give to clients showing I was able to settle their case for much more than the computer software said the case was worth.

Why Doesn’t the Personal Injury Settlement Calculator Include Income Tax?

Personal injury settlements are rarely taxed. In most cases, personal injury settlements are not subject to income. Money paid for some items like lost income, psychological injury, and punitive damages are taxed as income.

Tax on a personal injury settlement is more often seen when a case goes to trial and is not settled because the jury will decide what the money is paid for while a settlement before trial may designate the entire amount for pain and suffering which is not taxed.
