How Much is Your Car Accident Claim Worth?
This is perhaps the number one question that we are always asked at an initial consultation. The answer that we usually give is that we need to take a closer look, but we should have a good idea of how much you could receive when we review your records. This is because your settlement check would depend on how much you have suffered personally.
Your car accident compensation would cover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages pay you back for money that you actually lost. This includes things like:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Damages to your property
Non-economic damages are intended to pay you for your experience. This would include things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
You can be certain that the insurance company is going to have a different idea of what your case is worth. Here is how they may disagree:
- Undercounting the amount of time that you cannot work
- Underestimating your pain and suffering
- Failing to account for necessary future care and lost wages
We would need to review your medical records. Your doctor’s treatment and diagnosis should tell us a lot about what you have experienced and will continue to go through in the future. We may also need to speak with economic experts to estimate the extent of your lost wages and how your injury has impacted your job.
Our attorneys will come up with the amount of your damages when we present your claim to the insurance company. Chances are that they see things differently, and we would be in a position to evaluate any settlement offer they make and respond to it.
