Evaluating your accident or injury is crucial in understanding how you’ll be compensated for your injury and your loss. Your personal injury compensation is directly related medical bills you have incurred, are still incurring, and could incur in the future.
Assigning a price for your losses or damages is never easy. It often requires putting a price on things that don’t have a monetary value, like pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
Your total demanded amount certainly won’t match up with the insurance company’s offer, and it doesn’t have to. Your only requirement is to ensure that you get paid what you’re owed.
Still, you need to find a dollar value for your personal injury claim, and this section helps you do that. We’ll explore how attorneys and claims adjusters arrive at their settlement amounts, and how you can use a little know-how to boost that number.
Compensatory damages that are common in many personal injury cases can include:
Medical treatment — Includes the cost of medical care associated with the accident, including reimbursement for any treatment you have already received along with compensation for any potential or estimated costs of medical care that you may need in the future due to the collision.
Income — An accident may impact your ability to earn a salary or wage. This includes injuries that result in a loss of earning capacity.
Property loss. If you vehicle and personal items were damaged due to the collision, you will likely be eligible to reimbursement repairs and compensation in to total of the fair market value of the property that was lost.
Pain and suffering. You may be entitled to get compensation for pain and serious discomfort you suffered during the accident and in its immediate aftermath — also for any ongoing pain that can be attributed to the accident. Learn more: What is Pain and Suffering?
