What Is The Average Settlement For A Car Accident With Injury?

  • By: Sara E. Berge, Esq., LL.M.
  • Published: August 26, 2021

The average settlement for a car accident in the state of Florida is around $15,000. Depending on the severity of the injury sustained and the circumstances of the accident, your settlement might be lower or higher. More serious injuries will settle for much more than those of a lesser degree. Some factors that might influence your car accident settlement are:

  • Negligence
  • Amount of property damage
  • Whether air bags operated properly
  • If both parties were wearing seatbelts
  • Types of vehicles involved in the accident
  • Whether there were drugs or alcohol involved
  • Severity of injuries
  • Pre-existing injuries
  • How much insurance coverage each driver has
  • Ability to work
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Emotional distress
  • Impact on quality of life
  • Burial expenses

All of these factors could possibly impact the amount of compensation you might be entitled to receive. Without the assistance of an experienced lawyer, you might not get all that you should from the insurance settlement. A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the very complicated laws of personal injury claims. If you have had a car accident, please call (727) 645-6683 to make an appointment for a consultation with an experienced auto accidents attorney.
