What Factors Will Affect the Value of Your Car Accident Claim?
No two car crashes are the same, and the value of a car accident claim can vary on a case-by-case basis. Many factors will affect the value of your claim, including:
- Severity of your injuries
- How your injuries affected your ability to work
- Long-term effects of your injuries
- How your injuries were treated
- How your injuries affected your daily life
- Length of recovery
Don’t trust an insurance company to tell you how much your claim is really worth. Insurance companies want you to settle for as little as possible and are under no obligation to reveal the true value of your claim. Instead, turn to the independent, trusted Personal Injury Attorneys in Halifax at McKiggan Hebert for help calculating the value of your injury claim.
Can You File A Claim If Your Loved One Was Killed In A Car Accident?
Sadly, many people suffer fatal injuries in car crashes in Nova Scotia. If you’ve lost a loved one in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, your family could be entitled to compensation for your tragic loss.
The law only allows certain family members to file a claim to recover compensation for the loss of their loved one. In Nova Scotia, the only family members that have the right to take legal action are the victim’s:
- Spouses (including common law spouses)
Filing a claim or lawsuit will not bring your loved one back, but it will help your family recover compensation for your expenses, loss of care, loss of companionship, and loss of guidance, and more. The amount of compensation you are entitled to for your loved one’s death will vary depending on a number of factors. It’s best to speak to a lawyer at McKiggan Hebert to find out how much your claim is worth. Our compassionate lawyers understand how devastating it is to lose a loved one in an accident that could have been prevented. Let us help you during this challenging time.
