What Is The Average Settlement For A Car Accident

What Is the Average Settlement for a Car Accident?

After experiencing serious injuries that were the result of another driver’s fault in a New York collision, you may be wondering what the average settlement is for a car accident. The fact is that each car accident case is different, so the amount of compensation for each car accident case will be different. There really is no “average settlement” amount. Some people receive a few thousand dollars, while others receive millions.

Your settlement amount will depend on your unique circumstances, the strength of the case, the severity of your injuries, your medical treatment, your pain and suffering, whether you experienced an inability to work and lost wages as a result, your out-of-pocket hospital and medical bills, whether your injuries are permanent in nature and any other out of pocket expenses you incurred to name just a few factors that must be considered.

Since there is no “one size fits all” approach to determining the value of your case, you need to rely upon a team of lawyers who will use their decades of experience to carefully review each and every facet of your injuries to determine the fair and just value of your case. Choosing the right lawyer could be the difference between a good recovery and a great one.

Don’t Delay Consulting a Qualified Lawyer

One way you can inadvertently weaken your own case is to delay consulting with a lawyer. The law requires that you file your claim for benefits and financial compensation by a certain deadline. If you fail to file your claim within the deadline, you may be forever barred from receiving the benefits or compensation you deserve. Also, the sooner you retain a lawyer, the sooner we can begin to investigate your claim, preserve evidence, and build a strong case that entitles you to the highest financial recovery. If you have been seriously injured by another’s fault, call the lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates today, Don’t delay. Our consultation is free and if we agree to accept your case, you will not be required to pay us any money upfront. We only earn a fee unless you get a financial recovery. Until we hear from you, follow this simple advice after a motor vehicle accident:

  • Call the police
  • Request that a police report or incident report be completed
  • Record the names and contact information of any witnesses
  • Take photographs of the accident scene and vehicle damage, if possible
  • Obtain immediate medical attention
  • Follow all medical instructions
  • Do not give any statements to representatives of the at-fault driver
  • Do not post on social media
  • Retain copies of all receipts for all out of pocket expenses
  • Call Dansker & Aspromonte Associates

You May Be Entitled to Substantial Compensation

The lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates have been fighting for injury victims just like you since 1988. When you retain us to handle your claim, we will carefully evaluate each and every aspect of your damages in order to determine the fair and just compensation to demand from the at-fault party.

According to the American Bar Association (ABA), some of the types of damages that you may be able to recover include:

  • Your pain and suffering resulting from each and every physical or mental condition, including scarring or disfigurement
  • Future pain and suffering, if it is determined that your injuries are permanent in nature
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and mental anguish
  • Lost income and loss of future income
  • Hospital and medical expenses
  • Future hospital or medical expenses
  • Any other out of pocket expense or anticipate expense that results from the accident or your injuries

Motor Vehicle Accidents Can Result in a Wide Range of Injuries

The value of your claim is mostly dependent upon the severity of your injuries and whether those injuries are considered “serious” under the New York Serious Injury Threshold Law. That law requires that you prove you sustained a non-minor injury that meets certain criteria. Not all injuries that result from a car accident will entitle you to compensation. Some of the types of injuries which we have handled successfully meeting the threshold include the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken bones
  • Disfiguring scarring
  • Loss of a limb
  • Spine damage
  • Joint injury
  • Injuries that prevent you from working for at least 90 days
  • Internal organ injury
  • Death
