How much is my car accident claim worth?
When we see clients with injuries suffered in car wrecks, one of the first things they want to know is how much their case is worth. That’s a very difficult question to answer because there’s so many variables to the value of a case. A case is generally going to depend on things such as the amount of the medical expenses, the permanency of the injury, and how much it’s disrupted your life.
In Georgia, things that you can recover for personal injury are special damages, which are lost wages and the value of medical expenses, and what’s called non-economic damages, which includes things such as pain and suffering and the disruption of your life. Those are the categories that you’re looking at in terms of how much your case is worth.
Another limiting factor in the value of your case is the concept of at-fault liability insurance. Your case is generally going to be capped out, in terms of value, at the amount of liability insurance the at-fault driver has, unless you have some uninsured motorist coverage of your own, which we highly recommend. You can have a million dollars in damages in your case, but if you don’t have uninsured motorist coverage and the other party that caused your injury only has $25,000 worth of coverage, you’re going to be stuck, in most instances, with that $25,000 worth of recovery, despite the extent of your injuries.
The best thing to do if you’re injured in a car wreck is immediately consult an attorney so that attorney can help walk you through this process and make sure that all the things are being done that need to be done and to present your case in the best light to help you achieve the best possible recovery.
