Accidents can be extremely detrimental, harming people, personal belongings, and vehicles. Sometimes what we want more than anything is to know that we can get the most for our pain and suffering after an accident. One of the ways to do so is to estimate the value of your car accident injury.
A Simple Way to Estimate
A lot of different types of calculators across the Internet can help you estimate the value on your car accident injury claim. Fortunately, most car accident injury claims can be estimated with just a few calculations. These calculations include…
- Medical expenses
- Property damages
- Lost earnings
- Future lost income
- Estimated future medical expenses
- General damages multiplier
- Economic damages
- Non-economic damages – pain and suffering
Each accident is different and will come with different variations of pain and suffering as well as different calculations, but the list above is a good indicator of what to include in your car accident injury claim.
The Next Steps
After filing your car accident injury claim you’ll need to take the necessary action to get the most for your pain and suffering. No matter what kind of medical professional you visit, whether it’s a doctor, chiropractor, or a physical therapist, be sure to take detailed notes and document all of your medical expenses. Keeping a journal or a diary along with saving medical bills will serve as tangible evidence of your pain and suffering.
Photos also serve as a form of documentation. Photos of your injuries and car damage can be used as tangible evidence of your pain and suffering. The more documentation you have, the stronger your claim will be.
