If you have been injured in a Lyft accident in Los Angeles or elsewhere in California and you are eligible to receive monetary compensation, the question “How much can I actually recover to compensate for my injuries, damages, and losses?” has certainly popped up in your head.
And one of the best ways to answer this question and determine the approximate value of your personal injury claim is to find out what the average settlement amount is for similar claims.
Typically, serious personal injury claim settlements after Lyft accidents range between $300,000 and $1 million (or more), which means the average settlement amount for a Lyft accident claim is around $650,000 in California.
How much is your Lyft accident worth?
Our Los Angeles Lyft accident attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg explains that every case is different, which is why determining the value of your personal injury claim by knowing just a couple of facts about your case is impossible.
However, it might be possible to establish the approximate value of your claim by sharing all the details about your case with an experienced Lyft accident attorney in Los Angeles or elsewhere in California.
Calculating the value of your personal injury claim
When calculating the value of your Lyft accident settlement, lawyers take into account a plethora of factors, including but not limited to the severity of your injury, the potential loss of earning capacity, the amount of loss of income, pain, and suffering, past and future medical expenses, the percentage of liability, as well as many other factors.
For example, if you were in a Lyft accident and suffered a couple of fast-healing wounds and the medical evaluation concluded that there will be little to no impact on the quality of your life or your ability to earn a living, the compensation will most likely not be that big.
If you, on the other hand, suffered a severe brain injury that is going to affect the quality of your life and career for years to come or the rest of your life as well as require you to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to recover or improve your condition, the settlement is going to reflect that if you are represented by a skilled car crash lawyer.
Unfortunately, there cannot be a truthful settlement calculator for Lyft accidents or car accidents, as it is possible to calculate the value of your personal injury claim only if the calculation is made by an experienced attorney who reviewed all of the circumstances and facts of your particular case.
