You’ve been injured in a Missouri car accident and you likely have one goal. You want to get a fair settlement for your injuries. You want to recover. In order to make a fair recovery, however, you need to understand what your case is worth and how to convince the insurance company to provide you with a just settlement.
Understand What Your Case is Worth
In order to determine if a settlement offer is fair you need to know what the law says about your recovery. Generally, if someone else’s negligent or intentional actions caused your accident injuries then you may be able to recover for your past, current, and future:
- Medical expenses. This includes doctors’ visits, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, physical therapy and other medical costs.
- Lost income. This may include your full income if you are unable to work at all or the difference between what you were earning prior to the accident and what you are making now.
- Out of pocket costs. Car repairs, household help and other expenses caused by your accident may be recoverable.
- Pain and suffering.
- Other damages.
An experienced Missouri accident lawyer can help you understand the dollar amounts that you might be able to recover so that you know how to identify a fair settlement.
