How Much Is the Average Settlement for a Car Accident?

There is no perfect answer to this question because each car accident settlement amount or lawsuit award is unique to your case. No two crashes will ever be the same, and no two payouts will ever be identical, either.

The reality is that car accident payouts can total anywhere from a few thousand dollars to the million-dollar range. Your legal team’s ability to negotiate a fair settlement or litigate your case in the courtroom is a large part of the car accident compensation you may be able to receive.

An experienced car accident attorney can help you estimate how much to expect from a car accident settlement or lawsuit.

What Factors Determine Car Accident Settlement Amounts?

Car accident settlement amounts depend on several variables. Each case has its own unique circumstances that affect the payout an injured victim may be able to secure from an insurance company or jury.

Insurance Coverage

The value of a car accident claim is largely determined by the insurance policy of the at-fault driver.

Drivers in the United States must have some form of car insurance liability coverage, but minimum coverage varies by state. Under Indiana car insurance laws, drivers are required to carry certain amounts of liability coverage for bodily injury and property damage that meet the state’s mandatory minimums.

Economic Damages

Economic damages, also known as special damages, include financial damages that are economic and quantifiable. You may be able to get compensation for several types of special damages, such as the following:

  • Future and current medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Rental cars

Calculating damages in this category is relatively straightforward.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages, or general damages, are more difficult to calculate:

  • Physical disfigurement or impairment
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality or enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

These losses are intangible and do not have an exact dollar amount. Your car accident attorney can help you estimate non-economic damages.


Settlement negotiations, while generally quicker than litigation, can still take a long time. It’s difficult to deal with the complexities of building a strong car accident case while you are trying to heal from your injuries. Insurance companies understand this difficulty and will use it to their advantage—such as offering you a lower settlement award in the hopes that you will accept it because the process will be over.

The more patient you are throughout this process, the more likely it is that you will receive a fair car accident settlement amount.

What If the Insurance Company Refuses to Offer a Fair Settlement Amount?

Most car accident cases are settled before a lawsuit is ever filed, but there are times when the insurance company of the at-fault driver refuses to offer a fair settlement amount.

If this happens to you, your personal injury attorney will walk you through your legal options. Whether you decide to accept a low settlement offer or take your case to trial, you won’t go through the process alone. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
