If you have been injured in a car accident in Los Angeles or elsewhere in California, it is only natural to be wondering how much your personal injury claim is worthy.
And it is not just because you want to make sure that your personal injury claim will cover your medical expenses, past and future, but also because you want to be certain that the compensation will be sufficient enough to reimburse you for lost wages (let’s admit it: living in California is not exactly cheap, especially when you are out of work).
So how to calculate the value of your car accident claim? This is the question we asked our Los Angeles car accident attorney at the Compass Law Group, PC.
The short answer is this: it is impossible to calculate how much your personal injury claim is worth without letting an experience car accident lawyer review your particular case and estimate the full value of your claim. It is not like every motor vehicle accident affects people the same way. Some people sustain minor injuries, while others suffer severe injuries. Some people can fully recover within two weeks of medical treatment, while others may require two months with the same injuries.
It all depends on the particular circumstances of your car accident, the severity of your injuries, and what your injuries have cost you financially, physically, and mentally. It is a Los Angeles car accident lawyer’s job to give you an estimate of how much your claim will be worth and what compensation you truly deserve.
Note: do not trust your insurance company, which will most likely provide you with a quick estimate of the value of your damages within the first week of the car accident or even promptly offer you an initial settlement offer. Those estimations and settlement offers by insurance companies NEVER reflect the full extent of your injuries and damages.
While the value of reimbursement for property damage and medical bills are relatively easy to establish given that their cost is being documented in your property damage and personal injury claims, it may not be as easy to put a dollar figure on other compensatory damages in a personal injury claim:
