A: There is no ratio in any state. What they look at is the type of the treatment; who rendered it--specialist, GP, Chiro etc--the seriousness of the impairment. You could go in as Class 1 trauma, rack up an impressive bill for MRi'S & TESTING, and be well in a week.

A: There really isn't any set ratio. It depends on the individual case in terms of liability, injuries, disability, pain and suffering, and other factors.
