If someone else caused your car accident, you are entitled to compensation through a settlement or verdict in court. Setyan Law can help you get the money you deserve.
Both drivers and passengers in car accidents are eligible to receive a settlement after a crash. However, it’s important to work with a Los Angeles, CA car accident lawyer who understands the settlement process and can effectively negotiate with insurance companies. The legal team at Setyan Law has extensive experience working with victims like you.
What Is the Average Settlement for a Car Accident Claim?
While every car accident case is different, it’s important to know that you are more likely to get more money when you work with a personal injury lawyer.
According to a study conducted by Nolo.com, victims of personal injury accidents who used a lawyer in their case received an average compensation of $77,600. Without a lawyer, victims received an average of only $17,600.
In fact, when victims of car accidents use a lawyer, they get a payout 91% of the time. When they fail to use a lawyer, they only receive a payout 51% of the time.
How Much Money Can I Get for a Trucking Accident Lawsuit?
Unlike most passenger motor vehicle accident lawsuits, Los Angeles, CA trucking accidents typically result in higher settlement offers and jury verdicts. That is because semi-trucks are required to have a higher insurance policy limit than standard car drivers. In many cases, commercial vehicles have at least $1 million in liability coverage. This allows you to get compensation for all of your losses instead of only up to a low policy limit, as often happens in standard vehicle accident lawsuits.
What Can I Get Compensation for After an Accident?
You will likely have many losses after an accident that resulted in serious injury. Setyan Law can help you get compensation to cover the following damages:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Property damage
- Household services
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life
While a settlement offer does not typically list compensation amounts for each of these items individually, they will be factored into the total money you can get.
