Compensatory Economic Damages

Medical Expenses - How much have you currently spent? You'll need to add up your medical bills for this


Property Damage - How much will it cost to repair or replace your vehicle and/or any other personal property of yours that was damaged or destroyed?


Lost wages - This is the total dollar value you assign to every sick day or personal day you’ve had to take away from your job due to injury.

Example: Let’s say one day of wages makes you $200. If you’ve already missed 2 weeks (or approx. 10 business days) of work due to your injury, then it’s 10 x 200 = $2,000


Lost Future Earnings - This is the total dollar value you assign to the wages you will not be paid because your injury is preventing you from returning to work.

Example: Let’s say one day of wages makes you $200. If you expect to miss three weeks (or approx. 15 business days) of work due to your injury, then it’s 15 x 200 = $3,000


Future medical expenses - How much do you expect to pay in the future for medical bills related to this claim?


Pain and Suffering Damages

These non-economic damages get decided by a jury.

Example: Insurance companies will sometimes rate your pain and suffering on a scale of 1 to 5. If you are severely injured with huge bills, your pain and suffering damages might reach a 5. Take that 5 and multiply it by the total of your compensatory economic damages above to get a hint at what your pain and suffering damages might be. So compensatory economic damages that are $10,000 x 5 = $50,000 in pain and suffering damages.

FAQs About Car Accident Settlements

How Are Car Accident Settlements Calculated?

The elements that factor into the amount of a car accident settlement include:

  • Proving liability, i.e. Who is responsible for the crash and injuries?
  • Establishing that damages exist, i.e. were there injuries that have caused financial and personal harm?
  • Determining the insurance coverages for all parties that will pay out the money damages.

Who Is At Fault In A Car Crash?

Determining fault in a car accident varies from state to state. Some states are considered “no fault” states, while others are “at fault” states. In both circumstances, this deals with Personal Injury Protection (PIP), a specific insurance coverage. This coverage will help determine what money damages and other elements can be collected after a car accident. This includes medical bill payments, often referred to as PIP benefits or No Fault benefits.

Proving that another partner acted with negligence is a huge part of determining liability for a car accident. In many states, even if you were partially at fault in an auto crash with injuries, you may still have the ability to collect a percentage of money damages.

The Insurance Company Offered Me a Settlement Check Right Away. Should I Take It?

Insurance companies are businesses and have the goal of offering protection, but also making money. It is not in their personal interest to pay out large sums of money when you get injured. For this reason, quick settlement offers should be viewed with immense skepticism. The very strongest step to take in determining the value of your case is to go through the case review process with a licensed car accident law firm. Or as attorney Darryl Isaacs — The Hammer — would say, speak with a lawyer first and “Don’t Take the Small Check!”
