What factors can affect the value of my car accident settlement?

Some of the most significant factors that can affect your car accident settlement include:

  • Your version of the accident and its consistency:

    In a car accident case, you must remain consistent in your explanations of how the accident happened.

  • Evidence of negligence:

    You must prove that the other driver was negligent and that their negligence directly caused your injuries.

  • Doctors’ opinions and your injury claims:

    Medical records are vital for proving injuries in a car accident case. You must obtain proper medical treatment and keep all records from the doctors who treat your injuries.

  • Whether your current lifestyle is consistent with your injury claims:

    If you claim that the car accident has dramatically altered your lifestyle, you must be consistent in all your post-accident statements and actions.
