If you’ve been involved in a rear-end collision at any speed, it’s probably fair to say you’ve been left with some pretty high unexpected bills from repairs to medical expenses. From the moment the other car hit yours, you will have been out of pocket financially as you work to piece your life back together and live with ongoing injuries and traumas that come from having had an accident.
Here at Thompson Law, our dedicated team recognizes that every rear-end crash case is unique which will mean every payout will be different. Our team of experienced accident lawyers takes into consideration a whole range of factors in your case including missed workdays, compensation for pain and suffering as well as those vehicle repair bills.
In the following article, we’ll explain why every payout will be different, depending on the case and what to consider when trying to calculate just how much your accident has cost you so far.
Understanding your injuries and ongoing bills
After having any kind of auto accident, there’ll be a certain amount of initial outgoing you’ll be faced with to cover such as repairs and medical bills. When you’ve been hit suddenly in a rear-end collision, chances are you will have suffered spine, neck, and even head injuries meaning you will have ongoing medical bills as you begin to heal.
Often, initial injuries sustained after an accident of this nature don’t appear until after a few days or even a week. Symptoms such as neck and shoulder pains, headaches, and even anxiety and insomnia can start to show weeks after your accident but will be as a direct result of having a rear-end crash.
Making sure to account for every procedure and even secondary injury you’ve sustained is vital as your attorney will need to have an understanding of the kind of recovery you are experiencing. Other costs to you personally will need to be shared too, such as any loss of earnings and even money spent on additional transport will be considered when working out a final settlement for your case.
How settlements are calculated
A professional accident attorney will take into consideration all of the additional costs you’ve had to face as a result of being involved in a rear-end collision that wasn’t your fault. In the state of Arizona, the law will consider both the financial and personal costs that you’ve endured since having the accident, calculating a final settlement amount that they consider to be fair and reflect the ongoing issues you now face.
Rear-end collision settlements can be anywhere between $2,000 and $50,000, depending on a number of factors involved. If you need assistance with your crash case or want to chat with our team today, call us (480) 634-7480 today and find out just how we could help your case.
