We may call expert witnesses to the stand who can help determine how much your injuries may ultimately cost at the end of the day. This can be very valuable in helping to win a case. 

Compensation for Property Damage

You should be compensated for any kind of property damages that happened in the accident. This absolutely includes your car, but also includes anything that was inside of the car at the time of the accident. You have the right to be reimbursed for any property that was damaged or destroyed. 

Compensation for Lost Wages Due to Missed Work

Your injuries may be severe enough to make you miss time from work. You can demand to be compensated. If you are never able to return to work the at fault party needs to pay you what you would have made at your job. You have a right to seek reimbursement for any lost wages. Basically, your financial life should not be impacted in any way because of the accident. 

What is the Value of A Case?

This is such a difficult question to answer for many reasons. Consider the following scenario: a car is rear ended injuring its driver and passenger. Imagine these two accident victims are both taken to the Emergency Room via ambulance. Imagine they have the same injuries and the same medical expenses. What is their case worth? Well it depends.

For the driver, because he was not at fault he could make a claim against the insurance carrier for the driver that rear ended him. He may also make a claim on his own under insured or uninsured motorist coverage if he has it. The passenger would also make the same claim against both the same carriers and coverages as the driver. However, the passenger may be able to make a claim against the driver of his own vehicle if he can argue that the driver had any fault in causing the collision. The passenger could also make a claim against his own underinsured/uninsured motorists coverage.

In the above example, the driver can make a claim against a total of two policies. The passenger however has a possibility of making a claim against a total of four policies. This could very easily lead to very different recoveries for each victim. Adding even more complexity, what an accident victim gets to net following an accident could be different based on how their accident related healthcare was paid for. While many people purport to provide information about what someone’s case may be worth, they do not address the many challenges inherent in all cases. We are hopeful that a new accident settlement valuator will assist injury victims in fighting for just compensation.
