Crucial Factors that Impact Your Texas Car Accident & Injury Settlement Amount

Our Houston car accident attorneys at the Hollingsworth Law Firm know that one of the first questions injury victims want answers to is, “How much is my claim worth?” It is a good question. However, we know it cannot be answered immediately.

There is no one way to evaluate the strength of a Texas car accident claim, but our experienced injury attorneys know how to help you build a strong case. This includes evaluating the crucial factors that significantly impact the settlement amount.

It is important to note that every case is unique, and the specific details will influence the outcome. However, vital factors may impact the overall settlement amount.

Texas Car Accident & Injury Settlement

The Type of Vehicle that Hit You

In Texas, there is no shortage of commercial vehicles on our roadways. This includes semi-trucks, delivery vehicles, construction vehicles, and other heavy trucks that can cause significant injuries during a crash.

If your vehicle collision and injuries were caused by a commercial vehicle driver, you are likely to have been significantly hurt in the crash.

Commercial vehicle crashes often involve several liable parties and higher insurance policy limits than passenger vehicles, which may impact the settlement amount.

The Investigation and the Evidence it Produces

The availability and strength of crash evidence — including police crash reports, pictures, witness statements, the resulting injuries, and other evidence — can impact the strength of your case and, consequently, the potential settlement amount.

The Severity of Your Injuries and How Long They Take to Heal

The severity and type of injuries sustained in the accident are critical factors.

The total cost of medical treatment, including hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, prescription medications, and ongoing medical care, is a key consideration in determining a case’s value. Serious injuries requiring extensive medical treatment and surgeries or resulting in long-term disabilities typically lead to higher settlement amounts.

If the accident resulted in missed work or a diminished ability to earn income, the economic losses associated with lost wages will contribute to the overall settlement amount.

If the accident caused permanent disabilities or disfigurement, the settlement amount may be increased to account for the long-term impact on your life.

Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life, are subjective but significant components of a personal injury claim. Texas law allows for the recovery of these damages, and we will pursue each avenue that applies to your claim.
