Every back injury settlement in Atlanta is different. The multitude of factors that go into determining a back injury settlement means that it’s hard to answer an average amount of damages.
Back injuries can range from a relatively minor disc injury to major damage that requires surgery or lifelong treatments. Medical cost and ongoing suffering are often the two biggest parts of a monetary recovery for a back injury.
A small recovery time and a low amount of medical debt as a result are going to allow for a smaller recovery compared to an injury that requires years and years of expensive physical therapy, adaptations in the home, or surgery.
An injury with a longer recovery time will mean more missed work and potentially the loss of the ability to earn an income. These will have substantial differences in a settlement.
