How to Calculate a Car Accident Settlement
After you’ve been involved in an auto accident, it can be difficult to figure out what your next steps should be. You likely feel that you can’t handle the associated fallout on your own, but what are your options for getting help?
You may want to consider filing a claim for compensation against the liable party. If you are successful in this venture, you’ll be awarded compensation for your damages. But first, it’s important to determine the amount you hope to recover. Below, we explain how to calculate a car accident settlement.
To start, our attorneys will evaluate any damage to your vehicle or your personal belongings. Car crashes can lead to expensive damage and a serious need for repairs, and if the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to cover those costs on your own.
For those who depend on their vehicle to get to and from work, this is an especially important part of the car accident claim process.
If you sustained any injuries in your accident, your attorney will need to calculate how much you’ve spent on healthcare to calculate your settlement. This will include bills from the hospital or your healthcare provider, medication expenses, rehabilitation programs or equipment, and travel expenses to get to and from your appointments.
To ensure your financial security isn’t compromised, considering your work wages is an important part of calculating your car accident settlement. To start, your attorney will figure out how much you’ve lost in earnings while you were taking time off of work during your recovery.
Additionally, we’ll take into consideration an estimation of the wages you’re expected to lose in the future due to your injuries.
