How do I know what my car accident case is worth?

It can be hard to figure out what a fair settlement amount is after a car accident, especially if you are handling the case on your own, without the help of an attorney. The five main factors that determine how much your case is worth are:

– The cost of your medical bills

– The amount of damage to your vehicle

– The number of days you missed from work

– The non-economic damages you are experiencing, like emotional trauma, pain, and suffering

– The amount of money available under the insurance policies

There could be any number of variations of the above factors. For example, you could experience horrible injuries that result in expensive medical bills, but there may be no insurance coverage. Other cases could have very little vehicle damage, but lots of time missed from work because the type of injury you have prevents you from doing your job. Having an adjuster pigeon-hole you into a low settlement because one of the five factors isn’t in your favor can be avoided, which is why it is important to consult with an experienced attorney before you sign any type of document from the insurance company.
