How Is a Car Accident Settlement Calculated?

You are entitled to receive compensation if you are injured in an auto accident caused by a negligent driver. The insurance company might offer you a low and unfair amount to settle the claim. There are a lot of factors you might not consider if you file the claim on your own. An experienced attorney can guide you through the legal process and accurately estimate how much you should receive on your settlement. 

Making a Compensation Estimate

The settlement you receive should include all past and future expenses related to the accident. For example, an attorney will assess the value of damage to your car, medical bills, and associated costs. The attorney will also calculate the wages you’ve lost after the accident. The amount of compensation will vary depending on your specific circumstances. 

After an accident, the insurance company is required to pay the following expenses:

  • Current and future medical bills and related expenses.
  • Lost wages from work and other lost income.
  • Pain and suffering (physical and emotional).
  • Permanent physical disability.
  • Emotional damages.
  • Cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle.
