  • Establishing your current treatment needs, as well as your ongoing health care needs due to your car accident injuries, will also be important to figuring out an appropriate amount of compensation.
  • In addition to your medical needs, your inability to work due to your injuries should also be considered when it comes to determining sufficient car accident compensation.

Fact 2 – Your future needs should also be considered when determining car accident compensation.

Evaluating how much car accident compensation a traffic accident victim may be entitled to can be a complicated endeavor, as part of this assessment should be focused on figuring out:

  • Whether a person’s car accident injuries are expected to get worse over time and, consequently, will require more intensive (and expensive) medical treatments – In particular, this can be a consideration with head and spine injuries, among other types of car accident injuries.
  • How a person’s car accident injuries may impact his ability to earn a living for any period of time in the future.
