With a little less than 1 Million residents, Ventura County has always been a popular place to live and visit. The convenient location between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara means that there is also a lot of commuting that goes on with the unfortunate side effect of serious and deadly car accidents happening every day in this beach-side community. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a Ventura County car accident, do not hesitate to get in touch with the highly capable attorneys at Walch Law.
Average Ventura Car Accident Settlement Amounts
How much is your Ventura car accident worth? When just starting your research into filing a Ventura car accident or wrongful death lawsuit, you want to know if it is worth your time and energy. Let's start there-- if you have been injured because of a car accident that was at least partially not your fault, it's worth your time to call a Ventura car accident lawyer. And if you have lost a loved one because of a Ventura car accident then do not hesitate to call us. Hiring a lawyer to take on your car accident claim is so little work for you and can get you the money you deserve quickly-- something many people do not realize until they get the energy to pick up the phone.
Every car accident case is different and so is the worth of each injury, impact on life and death. One of the biggest determiners of the worth of your Ventura car accident case is something completely out of your control-- who the defendant is because ultimately the defendant has to be able to actually pay what he or she is responsible for. When the car accident involves another driver, you are usually limited to the policy limits of the defendant and your own insurance coverage (learn more about Los Angeles underinsured motorist coverage here). Here's a look at some general numbers that go into determining your average Ventura car accident settlement amount:
- Missed work: How much work you missed and how much it cost you is an actual exact number that you should be able to work with your attorney on coming up with. If you missed a week of work and would have been paid $1,000 that week then that is the number.
- Medical bills: your medical bills following the accident are another exact number that we will work with you on but these bills can get high quickly and not something that you should ever be out of pocket for. Keep in mind that these medical bills are different than how much an individual typically gets paid for an injury (see more on that below). A single ambulance ride can result in a $10,000 bill and each doctor visit close to $500.
- Pain and Suffering: A lot of our clients are confused and ask us this simple but important question-- what exactly does pain and suffering mean? It is a legal term that takes into account the physical and emotional impact your Ventura car accident has had and will have on your life. For instance-- scars, depression, physical limitations and shortened life span are all things that fall under this general term. As far ac calculating how much your pain and suffering is worth, one simple way to get a good estimate is to multiply all the other known numbers by a certain number or to attach a daily value and forecast it out until you are better.
- Car accident injury values: Individual injures are often paid out in a certain range (again, every case and injury is different), here's a look at some of the more common car accident injuries:
- Whiplash: Between $3,000-$30,000 depending on whether it is temporary or permanent
- Neck injuries: Around $50,000 for serious neck injuries
- Broken bones: $100,000 is not an uncommon number for larger bone breaks
- Partial paralysis: Hundreds of thousands to $1 Million
- Total paralysis: Millions
- Punitive Damages: Can you get punitive damages for a Ventura car accident? You can but the cases that are awarded punitive damages are extremely rare. That being said, we will absolutely let you know if your case warrants this type of defendant punishment-based award and will aggressively seek it if it does.
Again, the worth of your Ventura car accident case is something that you need to give us a call about to discuss in detail and take into account all the specific details of the accident, if you had a role in it, etc.
