How are Car Accident Settlements Calculated in Texas?
Our personal injury attorneys in Austin have dedicated over 15 years to representing injured accident victims throughout Texas who need our help calculating how another person’s negligence has impacted their day-to-day activities and long-term quality of life and then translating those losses into financial compensation.
After a vehicle collision with injuries happens, the injured may require long-term medical care and extended time away from work. Medical bills lost wages, and additional out-of-pocket expenses quickly escalate and can become overwhelming.
As the expenses grow, financial losses are understandably a huge cause for concern.
That is why we are here. To help each of our clients understand how their Texas car accident settlement is calculated, so they can focus on getting their lives back.
Here is what injury victims need to know.
Your Austin Personal Injury Claim is Unique to Your Collision’s Circumstances
When you or someone you love is injured in a vehicle accident, your injuries will dictate the type and amount of compensation our Austin car accident lawyers pursue on your behalf.
This means something different for every client we represent.
For instance, if you were injured in a vehicle collision in Austin, and broke one leg, an arm, and several ribs, you are going to require immediate medical attention, possibly surgery, potentially over a dozen follow up visits with various physicians, prescriptions, crutches or a wheelchair, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
The next factor to consider is how your injuries affect your ability to work. If you are a server in a restaurant, you are not going to be able to work until you are fully healed, which will leave you without an income for what could be a year or longer, and that is if all goes well with your recovery.
Your expenses will continue to mount over that time, and without an income, your finances could be severely strained.
On the other end of the spectrum, if you suffer catastrophic injuries in a crash, including a traumatic brain injury or spine or neck injury, your life could be changed forever.
More severe injuries often require a lifetime of care, higher medical expenses, and lengthier absences from work if you can return to work at all and ongoing physical therapy, rehabilitation, and home healthcare.
While the difference between these injury scenarios is the start of how your personal injury case is calculated, the way the injuries affect your life is a major component in how we pursue your financial recovery.
That is true for each aspect of your personal injury case, which is why we calculate your complete damages and losses, so we can outline each expense you are entitled to pursue from the insurance company because of their policyholder’s negligence.
