What is the Average Settlement for Lower Back Pain After a Car Accident?
When a car accident claimant resolves their case, either through a claim or lawsuit, the amount of money they get is usually confidential. Unless they explicitly agree to share the results of their case, it will not be available to the public. With this information in mind, there is no average settlement for lower back pain after a car accident.
When you partner with our team, we will work to get you the money you deserve. We can examine various aspects of your case and calculate the sum of your losses. We will then take that figure and use it as the basis for our negotiations.
Certain Aspects of Your Case Can Increase the Amount of Damages You’re Entitled to
Here are some of the things that can add to the value of your car accident case:
The Nature of Your Injuries
Lower back pain affects everyone differently. One car accident claimant may see an improvement in their condition after resting and taking over-the-counter medication. Another claimant, however, may need surgery and other forms of treatment.
Your injuries will have a direct impact on the value of your case. The more severe your injuries, the higher your medical costs could be.
Your Recovery Period
If you have chronic lower back pain, then this hardship can be accounted for in your case. During your recovery period, you may need things like medications, assistive medical devices (like crutches), and modifications to your family home. All of these losses are compensable. We can determine their financial values and include them in the sum of your damages.
Your Financial Losses
The cost of your economic damages will play a part in the overall value of your case. Your economic damages are losses that have monetary values and can be verified with billing statements, receipts, and invoices.
Some of your financial losses may include:
- Property damage costs
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Past and future medical bills
- Past lost wages, tips, and employee benefits
- Loss of future earning capacity
We can use the value of your economic damages to determine the value of your non-economic damages. The latter includes your past and future pain and suffering and mental anguish.
Your Quality of Life
If your lower back pain requires you to take daily medications, be confined to a wheelchair, or stop working, you can be compensated for these hardships. We can use the following piece of evidence to show how your life was affected by the accident:
- Testimony from your family members, friends, and colleagues
- Your imaging scans
- Information from your doctor
- Your medical records
Your own personal testimony could also bolster your case. Keep a pain journal in the days and weeks following your accident. Write down the names of your healthcare providers, the dates of your appointments, and your pain levels.
