Is Pre-Judgment Interest Required?

Pre­judgment interest is not allowed in personal injury actions, unless the defendant rejects a formal pre­trial demand by the claimant and the judgment is equal to or greater than the demand. In such cases, pre­judgment interest is calculated at twelve percent, beginning 30 days after the date of the demand.
