Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For The Injured

Elements of a Car Accident Claim that Can Impact Your Settlement

When you are injured in a car accident, you may feel confident in your ability to recover compensation. In your opinion, the other person’s fault seems obvious. However, there are multiple layers to a collision that can affect the outcome of a claim — some of these elements are out of your control, while others depend on your presentation of evidence and cooperation with the case.

The Damages Caused by the Collision

One of the main factors that affects how a collision claim is resolved is the damages that resulted. The settlement is directly related to the severity of injuries that were caused by the accident (and the property damage that occurred). People involved in a claim will determine a settlement amount according to the cost of a victim’s medical bills and any other resulting expenses.

Your Evidence of the Accident

Your settlement can also be impacted by the case you present. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, your settlement may not be sufficient if you cannot provide evidence of the other driver’s fault. Remember, the other party will be fighting hard to deny their fault, so you will need a strong case to show that they were liable and recover just compensation.

You will also need to provide substantial evidence of the damages you suffered, so the settlement will reflect those damages. Save all of your medical bills and other documents that show the financial impact of the accident.
