If you have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another party in the state of California, it is natural to wonder how much your case is worth.

What are the Average Personal Injury Verdicts in California?

According to Jury Verdict Research, when a victim goes to trial in California during a California personal injury suit, on average $1,814,094 is awarded. Median verdicts in the state come in at around $114,305. California's wrongful death cases draw much higher verdicts due to the immense loss that victims of these cases have to endure. In these situations, the median verdict is $2,212,936. Wrongful death verdicts in California are significantly higher than the national average at $1,450,000.

There are certain injuries that are common with California personal injury claims. In California, about 17% of cases are related to neck and back strains. When a victim sustains a neck or back strain injury the median verdict is $10,885. Disc injury median verdicts in California is $84,550. This verdict amount is again, higher than the national average which comes in at $50,000. Brain injuries in California have a median verdict of $1,595,000 when compared to the national average at $1,400,000.

Not every California personal injury case is going to be a winner. It is estimated that 41% of plaintiffs will be awarded a settlement when they pursue a personal injury suit. Statistically, it is known that a victim's chances of a successful suit rise significantly when they work with a California serious injury attorney. Also, statistics say the settlement amount a victim receives is also higher when they have legal representation.
