A car accident caused by another person or party’s negligence can take a real physical, financial, and emotional toll on your life. No matter the circumstances of the accident or the severity of your injuries, long-lasting damage of some sort is likely to occur. This can include costly medical bills, the inability to work your regular scope of work, and even emotional trauma. 

When you have fallen victim to another person’s breach of care, you are entitled to hold them accountable for their actions by filing a personal injury claim with their insurance company for damages. When you do so with the guidance of an attorney from Hasner Law, you are giving yourself the best possible shot at getting the financial restitution you need to move forward after your accident. Your attorney knows how to negotiate with the insurance company for a worthy settlement offer and will do just that for you while you focus on recovering. 

3 Factors to Consider When Calculating Your Car Accident Claim

When it comes to calculating your personal injury claim, your attorney will consider various factors, including the following:

Extent of Your Injuries

Economic damages are given to cover the tangible losses experienced as a direct result of your car accident. This will include any sustained injuries and their associated costs. For example, even a minor injury like whiplash will require trips to the doctors, possible physical therapy or rehabilitation, and prescription medications. Your attorney will consider the extent of your injuries and help collect detailed medical records to demonstrate your losses to the insurance company. 

Our team will ensure this includes any future expenses directly related to your injuries. 

Can You Work? 

Depending on the severity of your injuries or property damage, you may or may not be able to continue your regular scope of work. This can also affect your ability to accept future potential job offers. This can be used to help calculate your losses and be tied into your claim. 

For example, if you suffer a broken or fractured bone as a result of your car accident, you may find you are unable to complete regular work tasks until you are fully healed. Our team will help calculate your lost wages and include in  your damages. 

Emotional Loss

Intangible losses are also considered when calculating your claim. These are typically put under the category of non-economic damages and will help cover losses such as loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, loss of a loved one, and scarring or disfigurement. Car accidents can take an emotional toll on the victims, and settling your claim will hopefully help to relieve some of that stress and burden. 

Putting a numerical value on these aspects of your loss can feel confusing, which is why our team will help do so for you. With decades of experience, we know what a worthy settlement offer looks like and will do our best to get you just that.
