Compensation from Car Accident
Auto accidents are costly. The financial impact of an accident is quickly felt by victims, and they begin wondering how they will pay the accumulating medical bills, automobile expenses, and missed time at work. Often this is when they contact an attorney to see what their case is worth, and how they recoup the damages.
A case worth will vary greatly from person to person depending on the circumstances, which is fortunate for you. It allows for the necessary time for a full investigation of your claim and put together a case that assures you a just recovery of damages. It is also fortunate that skilled lawyers have the legal means that allows a personal injury case to be heard and judged on its own merits, rather than insurance companies paying out a fixed amount based on generalities and limits to protect their bottom line.
Factors to Consider
First consideration is for the needs of the victim:
- Extent of injury, determined by a complete evaluation by the necessary medical professionals
- Duration of treatment for injuries
- Personal toll caused from the accident, such as injuries, financial losses, and work constraints
- Psychological toll of car accidents, depending on circumstances
After a determination has been made on the needs of the victim, the amount of the claim will be based on past and future needs,
- such as medical bills,
- lost wages,
- loss of earning capacity,
- pain and suffering,
- disfigurement, and disability.
