How Much Money Can I Get from a Car Accident Injury Settlement?
One of Utah’s minimum auto insurance requirements is that all drivers must carry at least $3,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. You must exhaust your PIP benefits before you can make a third-party insurance claim against the other driver, unless the crash resulted in one or more of the following injuries or complications:
- Limb Amputation/Dismemberment
- Permanent Disability
- Permanent Impairment
- Permanent Scarring and Disfigurement
Unfortunately, it is very common for insurance companies to make low settlement offers upon receiving the victim’s demand letter and reviewing the claim. Insurers do this intentionally in hopes that the injury victim, under huge financial pressure, will simply accept the first offer made.
While it’s always discouraging to receive a low offer, don’t feel pressured into accepting less than you are fairly entitled to. It is often possible to obtain a better offer by continuing the negotiations process with aggressive legal support from a knowledgeable car crash lawyer in Duchesne County. Ultimately, the worth of a settlement is determined by factors such as your medical costs, the amount of income you were deprived of, and the effects of the accident upon your future earning capacity.
Based on these factors, claims can vary considerably. Only by reviewing your claim with a car accident attorney in Duchesne County will you have a clear idea of how much compensation you may be able to recover.
Many claims resolve with an out-of-court settlement. However, it may be necessary to go to court if settlement negotiations do not result in a reasonable offer. Darwin Overson is a tough trial attorney and is thoroughly prepared to litigate your case if doing so becomes necessary in order to pursue fair compensation on your behalf.
