We recommend discussing your case with a Columbus car accident attorney before you accept a settlement offer from the insurance company. It can be difficult to calculate the total expenses and losses you experienced because of a car accident, especially if you suffered serious injuries and endured pain and suffering.

You Could Be Leaving Money on the Table If You Settle Too Soon
It is rarely a good idea to accept the insurance company’s first offer and never a good idea to agree to an settlement until you obtain a comprehensive picture of your total losses. In other words, you need to know how much the accident cost you financially, physically, and emotionally.
The insurance company may offer you a settlement within a few days of the crash. This is tempting because it gives you cash to pay bills, rent a car, and take care of other expenses.
Unfortunately, this money often runs out before the expenses do. The first settlement offer may not be sufficient to cover your medical expenses and lost wages, let alone compensate you for your pain and suffering.

Calculating Damages Is More Complex Than It Seems
When you work with a personal injury attorney at Bressman Law to calculate the value of your case, you can feel confident that we will account for all accident-related costs.
Some of the more complicated damages we account for include:
- Ongoing and future care costs
- Diminished earning potential
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
These damages are much more complex to calculate. We may need to call in medical experts and those familiar with your injuries and your prognosis to determine your future and ongoing care needs and projected lost wages.
Often, these expenses are worth much more than the economic damages you already endured. For this reason, putting an accurate value on them is key to getting the fair payout you deserve.
