Car Accidents and Injury Settlements

car accident Dana Adkins Attorney at law

Car Accidents

If you are injured in a car accident, how much should you expect to be compensated? Negotiating personal injury settlements is more than simple mathematics. Many intangible factors come into play. As your attorney, it is our job to negotiate the best possible settlement based on the facts of your individual case.

The value of your case includes your actual damages such as medical expenses and lost wages. These figures will help establish a range your case will most likely settle within. This range is often 1.5 to 3 times your actual damages.

Determining Damages

Where your particular case falls within this range is driven by less tangible damages, such as the extent of your pain and suffering, your anticipated future medical expenses, and your expected future lost wages. These factors can sometimes be difficult to assign a value, but they are not as mysterious as some may have you believe. If your injuries are more painful, you require long-term care, your injuries are easily visible, or are supported by sound medical evidence, your case is more likely to settle on the higher end of the spectrum.

We’re Focused On You

If you were injured in a car accident, we can help you negotiate the minefield of legal and liability issues to secure the highest possible settlement. Other attorneys advertise the settlements they have gotten for past clients, but we are focused on you, your unique case, and what we can get for you.
