What Factors Impact How Much You Can Recover After a Car Accident?

When people who have been injured in a car accident come to Flaxman Law Group, one of their biggest worries is usually cost. At our offices in Miami, Homestead, Hollywood, and Denver, one question we get asked often is: “How much is my case worth?”


The reality is that every case is different, which is why we allow injured individuals to consult with us for free. It is one of the simpler ways to find out how much your case may be worth. However, we’ve also put together this guide to help you understand the factors that could impact your financial recovery after a car crash.

How Much Is My Car Accident Worth?

If you’ve been in a car collision in South Florida or Colorado, how much you may be able to claim may depend on a few factors:

  • Your medical costs. You can file a claim to seek recovery for all your needed medical costs, including surgery, emergency room care, hospital stays, medication, therapy, dental injuries, and more. If you’re seriously injured and will need significant care, you can seek more compensation than someone who will recover more quickly.
  • Your lost income. If you’re seriously injured and have had to lose time at work, you can file a claim to also get compensated for lost income.
  • Your expected future costs. After a serious injury, your injury costs may be long-term. You may need ongoing help around the house, continuing medical care, or may not be able to return to work and may take a pay cut. An experienced car accident claims attorney will work to get compensation for your expected future costs, too.
  • The liable parties. If the liable parties in your case were clearly negligent or if there are multiple liable parties—for example, an at-fault driver and a car manufacturer—you may have a better chance of seeking compensation from multiple parties, which can strengthen your case.
  • The evidence available. After a car crash, it’s so important to start documenting the evidence if you can. If you’re able to, taking photos, writing down what you remember, and keeping every medical record and receipt can help establish how much your injury is affecting your life. Strong evidence means a stronger case, which can improve your chances of getting financial recovery.
  • Where you were driving. If you were driving as part of your work duties, for example, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, which may be different than what you may be able to recover in personal injury claim.
  • Your attorney. Working with an experienced attorney can help you seek fair financial recovery after a car crash. A car accident lawyer who’s familiar with insurance company tactics and is willing to be aggressive in seeking compensation (instead of settling quickly) can make a big difference. For example, at Flaxman Law Group our attorneys have experience in the insurance industry, so they know how these companies work, and we’re willing to go to court when appropriate to pursue larger recovery.

Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
