Car Accident Cases: How much money is my claim worth exactly?

Jul 18, 2011
2 min read

If you have been injured in an automobile crash you may be wondering about whether or not to settle your claim for a particular amount of money with an insurance company. Potential clients regularly ask us to “put a dollar figure” on their case so they know what to expect.

Every Case is Unique

It is important to bear in mind that every case is unique and many different factors come into play when evaluating a settlement figure. If you were just recently involved in the accident, for example, you probably have no idea how much your medical bills are going to be, how much time you may have to take off of work, and/or the many different ways the injury is going to affect your daily life.

Get All Reasonable Medical Attention

If your injuries heal, you are likely to be in a better position to evaluate settlement at that point in time. We always recommend that clients get all the reasonable medical attention they need and deserve before seriously considering settlement. That way you are assessing what has already happened as opposed to the “what if’s” that are going to be involved in settling a case while the injuries are still fresh and the treatment is still ongoing.

It can be very tempting to take a quick settlement with an insurance company, particularly in these economic times. However, by taking the time to allow your injuries to be fully diagnosed and treated, you are likely to make a more informed decision and be better off in the long run.
