How Much Is My Auto Accident Case Worth?

The Law Offices of Adrian Crane, P.C. April 29, 2015

If you, a loved one or a family member has been injured in a car accident and you have questions about how much your case is worth, read the information that is presented below or call our offices at 972-325-0044 to speak to one of our personal injury lawyers or contact one of our car accident lawyers through this website.

The answer to “how much is my auto accident worth” depends on many factors.

First off, it will be assumed that someone other than you caused the auto or truck accident. Secondly, that the accident resulted in injuries. Thirdly, that that there is either at least a policy of insurance that covers the loss or assets are owned by the person or business that caused the accident from which a payment can be made. If these three factors are present, one of our lawyers can almost surely obtain financial compensation for you that you are entitled to for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and possibly other compensation depending on your accident and injuries such as disfigurement, disability, rehabilitation or damages caused by the loss of a loved one in a fatality accident.

Generally speaking, the dollar value of your car accident claim often depends upon the type and extent of your injuries, and often times that factor is evidenced by your medical bills and records. Other factors influencing the dollar value of your case are the length of your medical treatment, the frequency of your medical treatment, any estimate of future medical expenses or bills, any permanent disabilities and any other damage that can be documented. We study every detail so that we can get you the money you deserve for your injuries and other damages.

One thing to remember is that even though an experienced lawyer will know generally what your claim is worth, they will not promise you what he can get for your claim because there are too many factors out of their control; the fact is that while the lawyer certainly can, should and will influence what is offered by the insurance carrier, the liable party, the judge or the jury, the fact remains that they are not the people who make the decision. Don’t believe it when any lawyer tells you that he “knows” what he can get for your claim.

As stated, if you were seriously injured and missed time from work due to the accident, you will be entitled to compensation for lost wages and possibly compensation for a loss of earning capacity in the future if the accident has diminished your ability to earn money. Our proven Dallas, Texas auto accident lawyers can help you receive such compensation.

Surprisingly, there is no proven exact formula to determine exactly how much a case is worth. It will depend on how the evidence and testimony dictate the case. Because of our record of recovering for these types of cases, our firm is able to determine a general value for your claim. One of our Dallas, Texas auto accident lawyers will obtain medical records and bills and will analyze the client’s condition since the injury accident occurred in order to provide an estimated value.

Another way to answer the question of what is my auto accident case worth is to say that your case is worth either what you and the insurance company agree it is worth or if you can’t agree, the it is worth the cash amount that is awarded by a judge or jury in a trial. We of course will examine all of the conditions surrounding your case in order to arrive at a figure that we believe the insurance company should pay for your injuries.

That is one of the most important services an experienced personal injury attorney can provide to their clients is the recommendation of what to do in demanding a sum of money from the insurance carrier, what counter offers to make and what amount to settle for. Of course, if our client is not offered a sufficient amount of money to settle, we always have the option of filing suit. It should be kept in mind that juries often award more than what an insurance adjuster offers but the opposite is also true; juries often award less than the top dollar that was put on the table by the insurance adjuster. This is where an experienced lawyer can help you; letting you know when an offer is sufficient or insufficient.
