What to Ask for in a Car Accident Settlement

 

Car accidents bring your entire life to a halt, from the moment of the collision until you are fully recovered from your injuries (if that day ever comes). It will feel like you are waiting for your life to begin again, and in some ways, you are. 

You can’t get around because your vehicle has been damaged; you might be dealing with painful injuries that need time to heal; you could be missing out on income from work due to your injuries; you probably can’t enjoy your life the way you would like to until you have fully recovered.

You deserve to receive justice for what you’ve been through and for the negative way your auto crash has affected your life. You also deserve financial compensation for all the ways your injuries and the accident have affected you economically. But, how do you figure out what to ask for in a car accident settlement?

What Should You Ask for in a Car Crash Settlement?

When you are putting together your claim, you need to determine what you should request in the way of a settlement. You can’t simply call out a number like you’re on a game show: “I want a million dollars!” 

You have to know exactly how much the accident cost you financially, and then you need to come up with a figure that you believe adequately compensates you for your non-economic suffering.

Adding up financial losses is relatively straightforward. You gather all of your bills, collect proof of how much work you missed out on, and then add up these losses. Non-economic losses are a little more challenging to work out. How do you affix a price to the self-esteem issues you’ve been faced with because of the large scar you received in the accident, for example? 

It’s important that you are compensated for non-economic losses, but be sure to be realistic in how much you expect to receive. Compare your case to other similar cases in New Mexico. This can help you understand what to ask for in a settlement.
