Car accidents are not only traumatic and frightening, they can also be really expensive. Even with insurance, the ongoing costs of treating an injury and all of the related expenses can stack up.
If you are wondering if you will get compensation, it’s not necessarily a given. First you must determine your insurance coverage and other factors related to the crash. With the help of our experienced accident lawyers, you may be able to recover compensation above and beyond initial insurance company offers.
When a lawsuit or car accident claim successfully recovers compensation, it may be calculated based on the following damages:
Catastrophic injuries often require expensive medical treatment right away as well as into the future. Some of the most expensive car accident injuries include:
- Spinal injury
- Brain injury
- Internal bleeding and organ trauma
Our experienced attorneys know how to calculate the full amount of what you deserve for the injuries you suffered.
Loss of Wages and Income
A serious injury can leave you unable to return to work to perform your former job duties. Matters will be even worse if your injury prevents you from performing any type of gainful employment regardless of what you did previously.
This loss of income makes it difficult to support yourself and your family while you are also trying to recover physically from your injury. Losing money now can also have a negative impact on saving for the future and paying future medical expenses, as well as things like college accounts and other financial commitments to your family.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is not an easily calculated monetary loss. You can’t necessarily point to your suffering and say “this is how much it costs.” Nonetheless, as the victim of a serious injury, you absolutely deserve compensation for pain and suffering. Our attorneys have decades of experience arguing for maximum compensation for each and every way our clients have been affected.
