Q: What can I get (how much money) for my car accident injuries?
A: The amount of money that one person can recover for injuries in a car accident varies from claim to claim, from client to client. There really is no magic formula that will tell you exactly how much money you should receive for the injuries you sustained in the accident. There are probably at least two dozen factors that go into determining how much a claim is worth, and no two accident claims are alike because they involve different circumstances [regarding] the collision, different drivers, [and] usually different insurance companies. So it’s really impossible for an attorney to give you an exact amount. After your treatment and injuries have stabilized and the damages become more fully known, your attorney can give you a probable range where the case should settle at.
