Car Accident Settlement Amounts: How the Process Works

car accident settlement amountsWhen you are injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you are entitled to seek compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim. This compensation can cover your medical bill expenses, wages you were unable to earn due to being out of work during your recovery, lost opportunities, a loss of consortium claim, if you are married and your pain and suffering.

This process involves more than simply submitting a claim to the negligent driver’s auto insurance provider and receiving a check to cover your losses. It can – and often does – involve a lengthy investigation of your accident and negotiation between your attorney and the insurance company. If you cannot reach a car accident insurance settlement through negotiation, a lawsuit and an appearance in court may be required as well.

Your claim could be resolved fairly quickly, or it could become a long, drawn-out process that requires substantial court involvement. The articles in this section discuss what the most important information is to collect and the steps needed to reach the highest and best settlement for your claim.
