How Is a Car Accident Settlement Calculated?

If you’ve suffered an injury due to another driver’s negligence in a car accident, you are entitled to compensation for the physical, financial, and emotional losses you experience. To obtain just compensation, you’ll file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance provider, and your claim is very likely to be settled out of court – for an amount that is supported by the evidence. If you find yourself in the difficult position of being injured by another motorist’s negligence, reach out for the skilled legal guidance of an experienced Conway, SC, car accident attorney.

The Losses You Suffer

The kind of evidence that generally plays a role includes all the following:

Settling Your Claim

Once your attorney has carefully assessed the full extent of your losses, they will engage in skilled negotiations with the insurance provider in a focused pursuit of a fair settlement. Only if the insurance company refuses to consider a fair settlement amount will your attorney advise you to file a lawsuit and pursue a court award that affords you the compensation to which you’re entitled and that you deserve.
