What Kind of Compensation Can You Seek in a Personal Injury Case? 

In Uncategorized by Matador Sol

Personal injury cases can be incredibly expensive. Not only do you likely have extensive medical bills, but you may have missed work or even lost your job because of the injuries you sustained in the accident. No matter what, you need to reach out to an experienced personal injury lawyer, like one from Lesnevich, Marzano-Lesnevich, O’Cathain & O’Cathain, LLC, as soon as possible. Not only will your lawyer know whether or not a judge would find your case viable, but he or she can also help come up with evidence to prove negligence, will make sure you do not miss any filing deadlines, and can calculate the amount of compensation you are owed. People typically get much greater amounts of compensation by enlisting the assistance of a personal injury lawyer. The enormous benefit of this is that you often do not have to pay for assistance upfront – most personal injury lawyers not only offer free initial consultations, but also do not collect payment unless they win your case. Your lawyer will likely work on a contingency fee basis, which means that he or she will collect a percentage of the winnings if you win your case. 

Compensation for Medical Expenses

It is often very expensive to get medical care for injuries sustained in an accident. You deserve the best possible care you can get. The at fault party should make sure that you get this. The person who’s negligent actions or inactions caused the accident that created your injury should pay for the best medical providers and treatments that are out there. Your life should be able to get as close to normal as possible, without breaking the bank for you and your family. An experienced personal injury lawyer will know how to calculate past, present, and even future medical costs. 

Paid Back Wages

You may have missed work due to the injuries you sustained in the accident. Even worse, maybe you are unable to perform the duties of your job anymore. Your family should not suffer because of this. The at fault party needs to be held accountable and make sure you get the same amount of money that you would have if you continued to work. This can be included in your case. 

Personal Property Damages

Some accidents, like bicycle or car accident cases, involve expensive property damages. You should not be held accountable for this. Your lawyer should include these damages in your case so that you can be reimbursed to get your property fixed or replaced.
