Car accidents. They can cause serious physical trauma, lasting emotional injuries, and significant financial losses. If you’ve been injured, you’re probably wondering what your case might be worth, and what the “typical” car accident settlement may be.
A single car crash could cause anywhere from one or two hundred dollars in property damage all the way to millions of dollars in financial losses. Because traffic accidents are so frequent, the total economic cost is astounding. According to a 2014 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the economic cost of motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. totaled $242 billion—in a single year.
But how does a car accident affect you, personally, and what might your individual case be worth? This is a question Handler, Henning & Rosenberg is ready to answer. We realize just how different every accident is, and we know what it takes to help a victim rebuild. We often work with economists, medical professionals, and other experts who help us determine the full and fair value of a claim, based on the circumstances at hand.
We consider every part of a car accident, and every type of damage it may cause:
- Lost earnings from missed work while you’re injured
- Loss of future earnings if you’re unable to return to work
- Medical expenses, including the cost of physical therapy or other ongoing care
- Medical supplies, medication, and even travel costs to and from appointments
- Emotional trauma, such as pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life
- Damage to your vehicle and personal property
Each of the points above should be carefully considered. This will help us assign a fair value to your claim, and although no one wants to think about money or taking legal action in the aftermath of a serious accident, this is when medical bills will start to pile up. This is when you’ll be worried about how to make ends meet while you’re injured and can’t work. A fair settlement for your car accident claim can make all the difference as you start to pick up the pieces and put them back together again.
