Or more precisely, how do you calculate an acceptable settlement for an individual case? It seems to me that sometimes people arbitrarily pull a number out of thin air, like they just say to themselves, "Oh, I think my injury's worth at least a $100,000 cause I'm in a lot of pain." But there has to be a criteria out there for determining a reasonable amount you'd be willing to accept. Do attorneys generally help you with that process and if so do they generally tend to overshoot or undershoot the amount you're entitled too? Thanks.
