    you input the various benefits you are eligible for.
    factor in an estimate of how any disputes might be decided.
    include a present value factor.
    general you develop a range from high to low.
    you can try this

    there is no one method.
    every atty and carrier, adjuster, judge has their own factors.

    That's because there is no way to know, each case is different.

    There are enough threads on this topic, if you looked you would've known that.

    I will start to remove these types of threads, a thousand of "how much do I get" is plenty.

    I am fairly new to this site. I was not necessarily asking "how much do I get."
    I was just inquiring what seems to be very complicated in figuring out medical
    expenses, attorney fees, etc. Next time I have a question I will research the site
    a little more. Please be aware as a new member I might not have known this
    question has been asked a "thousand" times!

    I understand, sorry for sounding harsh. For some reason, we've had a flood of these types of posts lately, guess I'm getting trigger happy.
