Whiplash is one of the most common types of Los Angeles car accident injuries and a big part of your potential settlement. How much is your Los Angeles whiplash injury worth? As with any serious car accident injury, the worth of your car accident whiplash depends on just how bad the injury is, how much money you have and will spend tending to it and how much it has impacted other areas of your life like your work, personal life and more. If you are looking for a Los Angeles whiplash lawyer, look no further than Walch Law.
How Much is a Los Angeles Whiplash Injury Worth?
How much is your whiplash injury worth? Generally speaking, this common car accident neck injury is worth between $7,000-$20,000-- but you have to prove it! If your whiplash injury goes beyond soft tissue damage most commonly associated with whiplash and is much more severe and lasting, victims may be able to recover $100,000 for this injury alone. Any time you are dealing with a serious personal injury whether it is from a car accident, a Calabasas slip and fall or a dog bite, the absolute best thing you can do for your own recovery and for the worth of your personal injury lawsuit is GO SEE A DOCTOR. Legally speaking, your immediate or somewhat immediate trip to the doctor not only gives us a diagnosis to work on but it also shows the other side that you were hurt and just how seriously you are taking your injuries so they should be too.
Think of it from the other side, if you heard someone was filing a lawsuit for thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars because of injuries but didn't even bother to see the doctor...how seriously would you take their claims?
Whiplash, like any injury can greatly vary in severity so here are some important questions to think about to help you come up with where you might fall on the worth of this injury and what you might expect to recover if your claim is successful:
- Injury severity: Did your whiplash pain last for a couple weeks but now mostly better or you still in tremendous pain without an end date? This is something a doctor can help you determine as well but the general rule is the more severe the injury, the more money it is worth.
- Ongoing need: Maybe one trip to a doctor and some rest is enough but if it isn't, part of the worth of your whiplash injury is to not only compensate you for the medical expenses you have incurred but also to provide funds for the continued medical care you need to feel better. For many this might include doctors visits, physical therapy and even accommodations. After all, you should not be paying out of pocket for injuries that you did not cause!
- Personal and professional impact: On a related note, how did your whiplash impact other areas of your life? For instance, you had to miss a month of work because of the pain; or you have not been able to be intimate with your partner because it hurts too much. Most car accident injuries trickle over and negatively impact other areas of your life and this is something we put a number on and get you paid for-- some things like missed work are obviously much easier to value but we want to paint a very complete picture of the impact your Los Angeles car accident has had on your life so it's important that you tell us everything!
Insurance companies and other defendants do not just write checks for whiplash injuries claimed which is why working with a whiplash injury lawyer helps to maximize this and your other areas of recovery following a serious car, truck, motorcycle or slip and fall accident. The worth of your whiplash injury is only part of your larger potential recovery when you file a personal injury lawsuit in the wake of an accident.
