A: That information isn't generally available to the public, in part because so many cases are handled through CONFIDENTIAL settlement.

Also, in a personal injury case, a plaintiff has the burden of proving what they are entitled to recover. The end result of a case is based on the facts of that case, like the costs associated with surgical procedures, surgical complications, physical therapy, etc. So, an "average" recovery amount isn't really relevant to how much someone might expect to recover in their own case.

You might consider consulting with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who can evaluate your case and advise you based on the relevant facts.

Good luck!
