  • Where the accident took place
  • The severity of the injuries sustained
  • How old is the injured person
  • Was the injured person partly to blame for the accident
  • Was the injured person employed
  • Did the injured person suffer loss of wages
  • Was the injured person married
  • Did the accident affect the marriage
  • Did the negligence result in death
  • Did the deceased have a spouse
  • Did the deceased have children
