What's The Value Of My Car Accident Case?

If you've ever been in a car accident due to someone else's negligence, you likely had 1,000 questions that ran through your head all at the same time.

"What happened?" "Was this my fault?" "Am I okay?" "Are they okay?"

Those questions are likely the first few questions that run through your head as soon as the accident happens.

When things start to slow down, you start to wonder how everything is going to be paid for. And then, you wonder how much your car accident is worth.

When you make a claim for injuries, vehicle damage, and other losses after a car accident, putting a dollar amount on everything can be very difficult.

There's not a scientific equation to work out an exact dollar amount.

Two accidents that were very similar in nature could each payout very different amounts.

There are, however, a few key variables that car insurance companies and lawyers focus on in order to assess the value of a car accident case.

In the article below, we will take a look at everything that goes into a typical valuation.

What is a Claims Adjuster and How do they Determine the Value of my Car?

One of the major issues that people have, when they are involved in a Car Accident, comes when they look at the value of their vehicle as determined by an adjuster.

Most of the time, the value determined by the adjuster is much less than what the victim of the accident believes the vehicle is worth.

After all, the victim remembers how much they paid for the car, how much money they have spent on its upkeep and repairs, and what type of car they would be able to purchase if they except the adjuster's evaluation.

However, just because an adjuster values your car at a certain amount, it does not mean you are not entitled to more compensation.

In order to determine how much compensation you are actually entitled to, we recommend always consulting with an experienced Personal Injury Attorney.

Besides speaking to an attorney, we also recommend understanding the process that adjusters go through when they evaluate a vehicle and injury claim so that you can be sure you are getting a proper evaluation.

In this article, we will explain what an insurance adjuster is, and how they arrive at their evaluation.
