How Much Is My Orange County Car Accident Claim Worth?

You deserve money to pay for your injuries, medical bills, and how your life has been negatively impacted by your car accident. This leads most accident victims to ask the question, “How much is my Orange County car accident claim worth?” The answer depends on the type of accident, your injuries, and your attorney.

We Need to Evaluate Your Injuries

The extent of your injuries will be the biggest factor to take into account when valuing your claim. The nature and severity of your injuries will indicate a number of important considerations:

  • How long it will take you to recover
  • If you will recover at all
  • The expenses associated with your medical care, recovery, and lifestyle changes

While you can receive compensation for something as small as strains and sprains, the more serious your injury, the more money you will get. Your doctor will play an important role in this process by providing an initial diagnosis, treating you regularly, and determining how long your recovery will take.

Things You Can Get Paid For

Your medical bills, surgeries, treatments, and procedures should all be paid for through your settlement. Don’t settle too quickly, however, because we need to know if your medical bills are likely to continue into the future so that you can receive money to pay for those expenses, as well.

In the end, you should receive compensation to cover every financial expense and non-economic loss caused by the crash. This includes any of the following that apply to your case:

  • Wage Losses – If you have missed time from work due to treatments and recovery, you can receive money for this.
  • Caretaker Wages – When you cannot take care of yourself due to an injury or accident-related surgery, you can get money to hire help.
  • Transportation – Hiring transportation to drive you to appointments can be expensive.
  • Physical Therapy – Recovering may require alternative or complementary therapies that you can be compensated for.
  • Loss of Quality of Life – If your accident and injuries have forced you to change what you do on a daily basis or how you live, we can ask that you be compensated for lifestyle changes and pain and suffering.

Keep track of all accident-related expenses or losses so that we can include them when valuing your claim.
