How much money can I expect to get from my car accident?

One of the most common questions that clients ask our Los Angeles car accident attorneys at California Attorney Group is how much money they can expect to get from their car accident. Answering this question without examining the details of your case is near impossible. The fact of the matter is that every single car accident case is different. Depending on the damage to your vehicle, the medical and emotional injuries you have suffered, the pain and suffering you have endured, and the amount of income you have lost as a result of the car accident will all effect the amount of money you can try to claim from the Defendant, or the Defendant’s insurance company.

When making settlement offers, insurance companies usually try to offer you an amount that they think a jury would award you in your case. However, calculating this amount is very complex. To accurately reflect the amount of loss you have suffered, the experienced car accident lawyers at California Attorney Group utilize expert witnesses to calculate your total damages as a result of your car accident. This way we can establish what a good and bad settlement offer looks like.

To give you a general indication on how much money you can expect to get for the damages you have sustained, ask yourself the following questions. Were your medical injuries severe? Did you, or will you require surgery to treat your medical injuries? Have you been in pain since the car accident? Have you been treated by a pain management specialist for your pain? Have you been prescribed a lot of pain medication for your pain? Did you have to take time off work to treat your injuries? Were you demoted or terminated from your work because of your car accident? If you lost your job because of your injuries, are you still unemployed? Was your vehicle severely damaged or totaled as a result of your car accident? The more times you answered “yes” to the above questions, the higher the amount you will be able to seek for your car accident injuries. However, if you only answered “yes” to a few of the above questions, expect to be able to seek less money for the injuries you sustained as a result of your car accident. If you answered “no” to all of the above questions, you may be able to receive a settlement that you are entitled to, however don’t expect a huge sum.

Again, it is impossible to determine the exact number you may be entitled to as a result of your car accident.
