Car Accident Settlement Calculation
You are qualified to collect compensation if you are injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver. The insurance company may offer you a low and unfair sum to settle the claim quickly. However, you might not consider a lot of factors if you file the claim on your own. An experienced lawyer can guide you through the legal process and precisely estimate how much you should obtain on your settlement.
Constructing a Compensation Estimate
The settlement you receive should cover all past and future expenses associated with the accident. For instance, the lawyer will assess the value of damage to your car, medical bills, and associated costs. The lawyer will also evaluate the income you’ve lost after the accident. The amount of compensation will differ depending on your particular circumstances.
The insurance company is obligated to pay the following expenses:
- Current and expected medical bills and related costs.
- Lost income from work and other lost revenue.
- Pain and suffering (physical and emotional).
- Permanent physical disability.
- Emotional damages.
- Also, the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle.
