It's always a good idea to chat with a lawyer who is experienced in this kind of law.
it can depend on several things, including the type of accident, whether anyone was injured or killed, and what insurance company will be handling the situation. in general terms though, an injury claim arising from an auto accident typically ranges from $10-million up to $20-million dollars in most states.
is it worth it to sue after a car accident?
definitely not worth it.
in the united states, drivers have a few options when they get into a car accident depending on what state they're in – if no one was seriously injured then the driver should just exchange insurance information and forget about going to court. if someone is hurt, then read drivers license liability limits before deciding whether or not to sue. and if a life has been taken, then there's nothing left to discuss as the potential legal fees will be less than grieving for hours or days or weeks or years how your loved one is never coming back. there are weird nuances for different states but from my experience most people don't know what those are and this answer probably won't change their minds anyways so that's all i
what is the highest settlement for a car accident?
the most i've ever seen is $150,000 with $80,000 in medical bills.
that's right. some settlements can reach as high as $150,000 for serious injuries like brain trauma with paralysis and months of hospitalization. and that settlement would come along with $80,000 in medical bills paid out of the settlement funds – meaning that you're left with over $100,000 just go keep you alive long enough to heal!
how much do you get in car accident settlement?
the amount of money awarded in a car accident settlement depends on the severity of the injuries sustained, medical bills accrued, lost income during recovery period.
the maximum allowed by law for general damages is $500,000 dollars, with an exception for catastrophic injuries or wrongful death where the limit is raised to one million dollars. a car accident settlement will also include compensation for pain and suffering although these are limited by statute. for example if someone suffers personal injury as a result of another's negligence they may be entitled to receive an award that includes compensation for their past loss or future loss up until they reach age 18.
