How Much Money Can You Get for Your Car Accident Claim?

by Staff Blogger | August 12th, 2019

If you were recently hurt in an auto accident, your first question afterward was likely whether you and your loved ones would recover from your injuries. Your second question is likely whether you’ll be able to get compensation for the other driver’s negligence to cover your expenses, and if so, how much.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident attorneys work to help victims like you get maximum compensation for their car accidents every day. However, even with the help of a law firm, no two auto accident claims are alike when it comes to the total compensation that victims can receive.

Factors that can influence how much money you’ll get include:

  • Whether you were partially at fault—If the other driver is ruled to be fully at fault for the crash, you may be eligible to get more money than if you were partially responsible.
  • The severity of your injuries—Victims who suffer serious and long-term injuries are often eligible to receive more money than victims who suffer short-term mild or moderate injuries.
  • How long you’ll be out of work—Many auto accident claims pay victims for their lost wages. However, the amount you receive may be dependent on how long your injuries will keep you out of work.

Those are just a few of the factors that we’ll review when we build your claim. Regardless of the circumstances, you can count on us to do everything in our power to get you the money you deserve. Contact us today for a free consultation.
