The Hochfelder Report: Back Injuries


How New York Juries Decide the Value of Pain and Suffering in Back Injury Cases

The Hochfelder Report provides facts and estimated ranges of value for New York pain and suffering for specific traumatic injuries. Often in trauma cases, many body parts are injured. As a result, the verdicts, settlements and case histories that you often hear discussed on the evening news or in the newspaper do not help you determine the

value of your injury when you have injured only one body part.

Often, in cases involving back injuries — resulting from slip/trip and fall trauma, car accident trauma or construction accidents — the victim has other injuries as well. These frequently include neck injuries and pelvic fractures.

Therefore, please understand that if you have suffered a traumatic injury to more than one part of your body, you should use the information in The Hochfelder Report only as a starting point. The value of your case could be much less or much more than the amounts discussed here.
