What Is My Car Accident Case Worth?
The settlement value of your car accident depends on the circumstances of your case. Your lawyers will use a formula to account for your expenses, unearned income, and personal losses. Much of the time, those with more severe injuries can expect a larger settlement; however, our lawyers will do their best to make sure your settlement represents what you’ve lost and compensates you accordingly.
Types of Recoverable Damages from a Car Accident
Damages include both financial and personal losses, such as:
- Medical costs from care received immediately after the accident. We can also claim the cost of future medical expenses, including ongoing doctor’s appointments, surgeries, and rehabilitation.
- Lost income from not being able to work while you were recovering. If your injuries resulted in reduced earning capacity, our attorneys can calculate the value of future lost income.
- Pain and suffering from physical, mental, and emotional pain after the accident. Long-term physical impairment, loss of life enjoyment, and accident-induced trauma can all be claimed under this category of losses.
- Wrongful death damages if you have lost a loved one in an accident.
Placing a monetary value on these losses can be challenging. We want your financial award to improve your quality of life, so we will fight to make sure your compensation accounts for everything you’ve lost.
