Get A Feel For Potential Settlement Ranges

attorneys meet to review an insurance settlement offer.

A team of lawyers meets to discuss an insurance settlement that resulted from a three car accident.

We all know there is no such thing as an “average” insurance settlement.  Every case is determined on its own unique set of facts.
But by looking at other settlements in similar cases, we are better equipped to gauge the potential settlement ranges in our cases. Having an insight into average insurance settlements may help you better understand the situation you are in.

Most consumers are woefully under insured. Being involved in a car accident can easily cost a driver hundred thousands of dollars yet the law requires only a minimum 15,000 for death or injury and 5,000 towards property damage in California.

Other states vary, but not by much.  With minimum liability insurance and you’re found liable, or even partly liable for the accident, and there are medical bills for 100K you could be held responsible for the remaining $85,000.

The difference in cost for 100k liability insurance and the state minimum of 15k might be less than $10.00 extra per month.

This website aims to help consumers better understand insurance settlements amounts so that they can better protect themselves from the financial devastation of a car accident, someone getting hurt on your property, and other types of incidents in which a person might be held liable for the injury of another person or their property.

These financial disasters could have been eased or avoided all together with better insurance.
