Average Personal Injury Settlement Amounts

If you’re considering making a personal injury claim after an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness, you probably want to know how much money you can expect to receive in compensation for your medical bills and other damages. To get an idea of typical settlements or awards in personal injury claims—and what makes a difference in the amounts—we surveyed our readers across the United States to ask about their experiences. Here’s what we learned.

The Range of Compensation in Personal Injury Cases

Less than a third (30%) of the readers in our survey received nothing for personal injury claims. Of those who did receive a “payout” (an out-of-court settlement or a court award after a trial), the overall average was $52,900. Payouts typically ranged from $3,000 to $75,000, but a

New High of 90% of Americans Satisfied With Personal Life

Story Highlights

  • Americans’ satisfaction with personal life highest in four-decade trend
  • Two in three Americans say they are very satisfied, also a new high
  • High-income households, Republicans, married adults the most satisfied

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Nine in 10 Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in their personal life, a new high in Gallup’s four-decade trend. The latest figure bests the previous high of 88% recorded in 2003.

Line graph. Americans’ satisfaction with their personal lives, 1979-2020.

These results are from Gallup’s Mood of the Nation poll, conducted Jan. 2-15, which also recorded a 20-year high in Americans’ confidence in the U.S. economy. The percentage of Americans who report being satisfied with their personal life is similar to the 86% who said in December that they were very or fairly happy — though the happiness figure, while high, is on the low end of what Gallup has measured historically for that question.

Despite some

Money can’t buy happiness

Most of what we think we know about people with a lot of money comes from television, movies and beach novels — and a lot of it is inaccurate, says Robert Kenny, EdD.

In an effort to remedy that, Kenny, a developmental psychologist and senior advisor at the Center on Wealth and Philanthropy at Boston College, is co-leading a research project on the aspirations, dilemmas and personal philosophies of people worth $25 million or more. Kenny and his colleagues surveyed approximately 165 households via an anonymous online survey and were surprised to find that while money eased many aspects of these people’s lives, it made other aspects more difficult.

The Monitor spoke to Kenny about his findings and about the significance of his research for those of us who don’t have a net worth of $25 million or more.
