How will my compensation be calculated?

- The severity of your broken leg
- your legal costs
- past and future lost earnings
- contributory negligence
- success fees (which are mandatory in some states)
- and the state your car accident took place
All of the things mentioned above are variables which will affect your final compensation amount.
