How Much is My Injury Case Worth?

by | Oct 30, 2020 | Car Accidents

At Englander Peebles, our injury lawyers understand the pressure people face when they are seriously hurt in an accident and are facing off against a large insurance company. As the bills mount, so does the stress. And the most frustrating part is that you can be victimized a second time if the insurance company refuses to pay in full, putting your financial future in jeopardy. In our experience, we’ve noticed that there are three main questions that many people have after an accident or as they are dealing with their claims.

How Much Can I Get for My Claim?

After a car accident and/or car accident injury, many thoughts run through our minds. We contemplate the damage to our car and the other vehicles involved. We wonder if anyone is hurt and if so how bad. No matter which question comes first, they always end with how much will all of this cost. If the car accident works in your favor and you are able to file a claim that compensates for the damages, you’ll probably want to know how much your case is worth. The truth is, this amount can fluctuate based on many factors. Things like injury type, treatment plan, length of treatment, time away from work, therapy, and pain and suffering are all things that are considered when deciding your compensation amount. Because of this, it is important to work with a Law firm that can get you the compensation you deserve.

How Long Will My Case Take?

Once you’ve taken the steps to process your claim, it’s not uncommon to wonder how long it will take for you to receive the money you need to recover. A car accident case can take anywhere from a few months to a year to settle. Though this seems like a long time, there are many things that have to be considered to make sure an adequate amount of compensation is awarded to the appropriate party.

Having the proper evidence, documentation and a team of attorneys who will fight hard for your case can help expedite this process.

How Do I Pay for My Doctors?

One of the biggest, most common questions many people ask as their settlement is being processed is how will they pay for their doctors. It’s no secret that doctor visits, therapy, medication, and other health-related expenses can add up quickly. The fact of the matter is depending on your insurance type, personal injuries will be covered by the insurance company of the “at-fault” driver. Once the settlement is processed any unpaid medical expenses will be included in the settlement amount.

Many factors go into a car accident claim and many questions come up when it comes to filing a claim and getting a settlement. Finding a team of attorneys that can answer your questions and give you real solutions can be challenging. That is why the team here at Englander Peebles works hard to make sure we are knowledgeable and available for any questions or concerns you have.
