How large of a car accident settlement should I expect?
Just as no two accidents are the exact same, neither are their settlements. As Advocates, it is our mission to do whatever it takes to make your life whole again. We will compile and then send a demand out requesting full compensation for any and all injuries and losses you suffered from your car accident. Such losses may include:
* Medical bills
* Physical therapy bills
* Chiropractor bills
* Lost wages
* Childcare costs
* Personal recovery time
Medical bills can pile up fast after a car accident, leaving you buried under an avalanche of debt. But if you hire The Advocates, we won’t stop fighting until your life has been restored to what it was before your accident. Let us help get you back on the road to recovery.

How long will it take for my car accident claim to settle?
Every case is different so it’s virtually impossible to put an exact timeline on any one case. But if you are no longer requirement treatment for your injures and your case does not need to go to court then you can expect everything to be concluded within a 4 to 12-month window. However, if your case ends up going into litigations where a lawsuit is required, then your car accident claim could very well drag on for years. For example, the discovery phase of a lawsuit alone can take up to 6 to 12 months. Luckily, the vast majority of personal injury settle before they even get a chance to go to trial.
A Car Accident is a Serious Legal Case
Nobody plans on being in a car accident. With little or no advance warning, car accident can happen out of the blue. One minute you’re going about your daily business and the next, you’re standing beside your wrecked car, wondering where, exactly, things went wrong. You may have even been seriously injured in your accident and now face a long road to complete recovery.
Don’t worry. The Advocates has helped thousands of accident victims recover millions of dollars in legal compensation for their injuries and losses since 1993. We can help guide you through the period of uncertainty following your car accident by answering all of your legal questions. How viable is your personal injury case? Will your medical bills be paid while you wait for a settlement? How will you survive financially if you are too hurt to work full time?
The Advocates can help find solutions to all of your questions and any others you may have. Our lawyers have decades of experience helping accident victims rebuild their lives and finances following their car accidents.
Car Accident Types and Common Injuries
A host of variables play a factor in just what types of injuries are produced from a car accident. Your location in the vehicle. Whether you were wearing a seatbelt or not. The speed in which the cars were traveling. Even the type of vehicles involved in the accident; an accident involving a large truck is often far worse than being hit by a Mini Cooper.
Below is a list of the most frequent automobile accident types:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-ended collisions
- Single-car crash
- Multi-vehicle pileup crash
- Sideswiped accident
- Side impact crash
- T-bone collision
- Rollover crash
These types of accidents can produce a variety of injuries ranging from the minor to the gravely severe. The most common car accident injures include:
- Soft tissue damage
- Lacerations, abrasions, or cuts
- Broken bones and fractures
- Internal bleeding
- Damaged organs
- Spine and back injuries
- Torn muscles
- Neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
Idaho Car Accident Statistics
According to statistics compiled by the Idaho Transportation Department, a traffic crash occurs every 22 minutes in the state of Idaho. More disturbingly, one person is killed in a traffic crash once every 40 hours.
Such statistics are both upsetting and proof of an all too common reality of the road, that accidents happen each and every day on Idaho roads and highways. These unfortunate statistics extend to non-automobile vehicles, also. A motorcyclist was hurt in a traffic collision once every 16 hours, a bicyclist once every 31 hours, and a pedestrian once every 40 hours. Indeed, for the year 2015, the most recent time such statistics were compiled, there were a total of 24,018 accidents involving motor vehicles in Idaho.
When faced with such statistics, it is difficult to feel safe while traveling along Idaho roads. How can you protect yourself and your family from being in a car accident? Do such statistics show that being in a car accident is inevitable? Unfortunately, there is little you can do to prevent being in a car accident. Tragedies such as these can strike without so much as a moment’s notice. Not to worry. The Advocates will help you recover if you do ever find yourself the victim of a car accident.
