A car accident can dramatically change a victim’s life. Not only will they have to face the challenges of recovering their physical and mental health, financially an accident can be difficult to come back from. If you are not working with an experienced car accident attorney, you may end up settling for less compensation than you need to offset the financial burden you have experienced due to your injury.
If you have been involved in a car accident due to the negligent or reckless actions of another driver, you are likely in a position to recover compensation. While this may be simple to understand, knowing the specifics of what compensation is available to you requires more knowledge. This is where working with an experienced car accident attorney can benefit you.
During your no-cost consultation, our legal team can discuss with you what to expect from your accident claim and the types of compensation available in your car accident case. The compensation you can receive after an accident relies on several different factors.
Some of these factors include:
- The state you are injured in
- The vehicle you are injured in
- If you are the driver or passenger
- Which driver was at-fault
What Compensation Do I Qualify For After A Car Accident?
If you are a car accident victim that has suffered an injury, you are probably quickly becoming aware of the amount of money the accident is beginning to cost you. Not only do you have to pay your medical expenses, you are probably experiencing a loss of wages, property damage costs, and more. When you work with the Law Office of Beverly R. Caruthers for your car accident claim, we help you to recover the total cost of your damages before accepting a settlement. Some of the compensation we help you receive money for includes:
Property Damage: In a collision it is normal to have damage to your vehicle and in some cases the belongings inside of it. Our team can help you to get compensation for the damages to your car and other personal property harmed in the accident.
Lost Wages: Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may not be able to work following your car accident. If this applies to you, you can qualify for compensation for any pay you missed while healing. Additionally, you can receive payment for the loss of PTO benefits and other employee benefits you may have used following your accident.
Medical Expenses: When you have suffered an injury due to a car accident, one thing is for sure, the medical bills can quickly become out of hand. Even the ambulance ride from the crash to the hospital can run you thousands of dollars. These costs are all compensable if you can prove the other driver is at-fault in your case.
Pain and Suffering: A severe car accident can leave behind more than just an outrageous cost in bills. It can also leave victims with significant pain, sometimes for a brief period of time and sometimes indefinitely. While money cannot take away your pain and suffering it can help you to maintain a lifestyle similar to what you lived before the accident.
Loss of “Consortium”: Consortium is the legal term used to describe the relationship between a husband or wife. You may be eligible for compensation if your injury has led to the loss of physical intimacy in your marriage.
Loss of Enjoyment: Some injuries may affect the lifestyle you lived before the accident. If you are no longer able to do the activities you once enjoyed, our legal team can present this when helping you receive proper compensation for your injury claim.
Insurance Settlements in Houston
Insurance companies have one main concern, protecting their bottom line. Even if they believe you are entitled to much more compensation, they typically will start with an initial settlement offer that is much less than you deserve. Many times the offer may only cover the minimal medical costs you have amassed. Luckily, when you work with an experienced car accident and injury lawyer, you can fight for the money you truly deserve. We will fight for you every step of the way to ensure you are being fairly compensated in your case.
