How Much Compensation Can You Get After a Car Accident?

As a Beverly Hills personal injury law firm, people ask us questions like these every day. The reality is that we cannot even provide a guess about the value of your claim without knowing the details of your case. Your compensation will be determined by a variety of factors, mostly concerning the losses that you incurred due to the accident and your resulting injuries. We can evaluate your situation and give you an idea of what you might expect if you can pursue a car accident claim.

Medical Expenses

Serious injuries need immediate medical care, and you might need ongoing treatment for weeks, months, or even years. Never avoid medical help due to concerns about cost, as getting the diagnosis and treatment you need is critical to the success of a future injury claim. You can also seek compensation for the estimated costs of medical care you need after your claim is resolved.

Lost Income

If your injuries kept you from working, you can seek compensation for the income you lost. If your injury was disabling and you cannot return to your previous job – or any job at all – you can financially recover for your future lost earnings, as well.

Pain & Suffering

Pain and suffering awards cover inconvenience, permanent injury, distress, and those types of intangible losses. There is no black-and-white rule to calculate a pain and suffering settlement, but most insurance companies or juries will multiply the amount of your financial losses based on the severity of the injuries and/or the other driver’s negligence. So $5,000 of property damage could be multiplied by two for minor injuries or by five for more severe injuries, as an example.
