Minor Injury Car Accident Settlements

Car accidents, even minor ones, can cause significant damage to your mental health and diminish your quality of life. Furthermore, everyone should be examined by a medical professional after an accident, and that treatment isn’t free. The combination of your medical bills, car repair, and other expenses from your injury can be financially draining, but a settlement for your car accident lawsuit could provide you with the compensation you need to take your life back.

Even minor injuries can have major payouts, and your settlement could allow you to recover damages from your accident. The majority of car accident cases result in a settlement, but your case could end up in court if both parties are unwilling to come to an agreement.

Insurance companies have been known to diminish or deny insurance claims for unethical reasons. They’ll try to lowball you and hope you’ll take their “best” offer so they don’t have to pay you the compensation you’re entitled to. But, with Morgan & Morgan, you can fight back and secure your full and fair compensation.

  • What Is The Car Accident Settlement Process?

    After your accident, you should file an insurance claim with the insurance provider of the negligent party. This claim allows you to recover damages resulting from your accident, such as vehicle repair expenses and medical bills. Even if your injuries were minor, the emotional trauma stemming from your injury could be severe, and you can seek compensation for that emotional damage.

    It is recommended that you retain an experienced attorney at this time, as their assistance can be crucial in the remaining legal proceedings. Once you have done so, you can begin gathering evidence in support of your case. Your attorney can collect eyewitness testimony, photo/video of the accident site, and medical records to make your case as strong as possible before negotiations begin. Proving the impact of minor injuries can be difficult, so you should also collect testimony from medical experts to solidify your claim.

    Following the investigation, you can begin to draft the demand letter. This letter will be sent to the at-fault party’s insurance provider and will contain a description of your injuries, an explanation of how the other party acted negligently, and a formal request for compensation. Upon receiving this letter, the insurance company will either accept the request and begin settlement negotiations or deny it because they dispute the validity of your claim. If your claim is denied, you can file an appeal with a claims adjuster to reopen the claim.

    The statute of limitations for a car accident settlement is dependent on many factors, including your location. These cases can take extensive time to resolve, so it’s important to act quickly.

  • What Damages Can I Recover in My Car Accident Settlement?

    The compensation you’ll receive for your car accident settlement can vary depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, such as the location of the accident, the extent of your injuries, and the timeline of your recovery. The emotional trauma you’ve experienced is likely severe, so your attorney should make sure to emphasize this during negotiations. 

    Minor injuries can potentially turn into serious future health issues, so ensure your medical report includes any evidence of this. While the details of your case are unique, here are some commonly recovered damages in car accident settlements:

    • Medical expenses
    • Car repair expenses
    • Emotional distress
    • Lost wages
    • Pain and physical suffering
  • Contact Morgan & Morgan

    In the most difficult moments of your life, Morgan & Morgan has your back. Insurance companies think they can use their resources to bully you into accepting a lowball offer on your injury settlement, but we can help you fight back. You need someone who will relentlessly advocate for what you and your family deserve, and that’s what we do best.

    We understand how financially draining a car accident can be, so we’ve made it easy for you to join our team. Our firm operates on a contingency—meaning it costs nothing to hire us and we’re only paid if we win your case. In order to ensure that everyone has the ability to afford experienced representation after an accident, we take our fee out of the favorable settlement or jury award.

    Over the last 30 years, we’ve recovered over $13 billion for our clients. Insurance companies are aware of how dedicated we are to our clients and have come to fear us as a result. When they hear you’ve teamed up with Morgan & Morgan, they’re more likely to offer a higher settlement because they don’t want to see us in court. We treat our clients like family and we’ll never settle for a penny less than you deserve.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
