There are many questions we receive from potential clients when they are just starting off with a car accident claim, and it’s easy to understand why. One of the questions we receive most often, though, is, “What is my car accident case worth?”
Unfortunately, it’s not something that we can answer right off the bat because there are so many factors that go into determining value. Before you look into how much you may recover, here are three of the things that help determine the amount you receive.
1. Medical Needs
Your medical needs are an economic loss and it’s necessary to determine your overall amount spent. The more you spend on your damages, the more you may be able to recover through your car accident claim. This is designed to cover the money that comes out of your pocket to spend on those procedures, medication, visits, and more.
2. Time Off Work
If you’re unable to work because of your injuries, you are unable to earn a significant income to pay regular bills, medical expenses, and more. The amount of money you are unable to earn—and potential future income—can play a role in the amount you recover in your claim.
3. Pain and Suffering
Your pain and suffering can play one of the biggest roles in your claim. The compensation you recover for mental anguish can make up a large portion of the compensation you receive. The more severe the damages you sustain, the more you may be able to recover.
Personal injury law covers pain and suffering under non-economic damages because there’s no direct value associated with it. Working with a lawyer can help increase the potential amount you are able to recover.
