What’s the Average Car Accident Settlement?

No one wants to be in a car accident, and certainly, no one wants to deal with the aftermath. If you have recently been involved in an automobile crash, you’re dealing with medical bills, insurance payments, physical pain, and emotional distress. You would never plan for something like this, so the sudden occurrence of this life-altering event can leave you dealing with issues that you never planned for.

To make matters even worse, this car accident wasn’t even your fault. Maybe someone was texting and driving, or ran a red light, or got behind the wheel to drive while intoxicated. Whatever the reason, they caused a lot of pain and suffering in your life and it’s time to consider bringing in a Davie, FL attorney to start a lawsuit. A car accident settlement can reimburse you for the money that you’ve paid out to your doctor and car insurance company. It can also make up for lost wages, trauma, and the cost of replacing your car.

“Wait..” you may be saying as you look at that, “I can be compensated for trauma?” Yes! That is why all car accident settlements are different. It’s easy to get reimbursed for funds that you’ve paid out, like medical bills and the cost to repair your car. It’s much more challenging to put a fair price on pain and suffering. The sum that the other driver or their insurance company offers may be much lower than you expect. You don’t need to accept it! Bring in The Longo Firm and let us take it from there.

Our Davie, FL lawyers will help you take the measures that are necessary to protect yourself if you’ve been injured in a car crash. You’ll need to document everything related to the accident, like medical bills and days off work. Your lawyer will help you go to your boss so he or she can vouch for missed workdays and your doctor can supply documentation to the treatment that you have received. With us on your team, you should be able to recover the money that you’ve lost. Beyond just this amount, we will fight for you to get more money that covers the emotional pain and suffering you’ve gone through.

One of the most popular questions we get from car accident victims is how much money they can expect to receive in their settlement. The average car accident settlement is around $21,000. It is likely to fall somewhere between $14,000 and $28,000. The settlement is generally higher for more severe or permanent injuries. Also, you’ll also get paid more if the other driver was found to be driving under the influence. These numbers are just an estimate, as your actual number depends a lot on your unique situation.

Maybe you cannot ride your bike anymore or swim in your pool. It is possible you can’t easily play basketball with your kids. You may be unable to work at all and it’s making you feel depressed. These are all things we will show in our lawsuit to prove you deserve compensation above and beyond your medical bills.
