Personal injury cases vary greatly in terms of the amount of damages that can be claimed. For example, a person might get hurt stepping on a slippery step, which then causes the victim to suffer from a slipped disc and related back pain. This case offers the ability to claim greater damages because of medical expenses and likely lost wages. Likewise, a person might get hurt in a less serious accident, and the personal injury claim might amount to less than a thousand dollars.
The problem associated with personal injury cases with small claim amounts is that insurance companies try to discourage lawyers from representing these types of cases. They do so by habitually offering minimal settlements with little to no money involved, and this tactic turns off most attorneys from taking this type of case.
