One of the most common questions we receive from victims injured by the negligence of others involves the value of their claims. In person, and after reviewing a case, we can provide some insight into what compensation may look like. At the outset, however, the answers is always: it depends.
Every accident, injury, and victim is unique, which means it becomes difficult to say how much a claim may be worth without closely evaluating the specific facts and circumstances surrounding an accident and the injuries that occurred. Generally, victims should understand that when a claim is successful, they can recover financial compensation for physical, financial, and emotional damages caused by the accident.
These damages may include:
- Costs of past and future medical care
- Lost work earnings and future wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Impairment, disfigurement, or paralysis
- Loss of quality of life
Our civil justice system paves the way for victims injured at the hands of others to recover these damages, but it does not guarantee that you’ll recover what you need or deserve – especially when insurance companies are doing all they can to deny your claim or minimize your payout.
To put yourself in the best position for maximizing the value of your personal injury claim, it is important to work with experienced lawyers who know how to establish fault and liability, deal with insurance companies, and be prepared to pursue a positive recovery via settlement or trial.
