Warsaw Accident Attorneys – Vanderpool Law Firm

Settlement of Car Accident / Personal Injury Claim

Settlements for personal injury claims occur in the large majority of cases. Many of the car accident, motorcycle accident, and trucking accident cases will never go to trial and many get settled prior to filing the lawsuit in court. When these cases are resolved outside of court, these are called settlements.

The best way to ensure the settlement is compensating you fairly is to work with your accident attorney. Your accident attorney will be able to evaluate your claim and advise whether a settlement is fair. There is no set formula that will determine a cases worth. There are many factors that need to be considered in evaluating any particular claim. Below is a list of common categories for which damages are often collected in a personal injury case.

  1. Medical Treatment;
  2. Lost income/wages;
  3. Pain and Suffering;
  4. Loss of Consortium;
  5. Punitive Damages;
  6. Emotional Distress;
  7. Lost Property.

Once our accident attorneys get involved in a case we immediately start our investigation. Once we have been able to collect all the information we need we will start working to settle the claim. Our clients will always be involved in this process and we seek their authority on what amounts to demand and what amounts they would accept to settle their claim.
