Why File a Personal Injury Claim?
After a serious accident, most people’s first priority is obtaining medical treatment. In fact, it is critically important that you seek medical care after any accident, no matter how minor it may seem. Unfortunately, this treatment is often very costly.
Additionally, injured victims may find themselves temporarily or permanently out of work, depending on the nature of their injuries. This further compounds financial concerns. And, of course, extensive injuries also cause extensive physical pain and emotional distress.
Often, the liable insurance company or another responsible party will offer a very low settlement that does not even come close to covering the cost of your damages. Insurance companies will even outright deny valid injury claims. This can leave victims and their families struggling to get back on their feet—even though the injuries and resulting consequences were caused through no fault of their own.
Compensation for your Personal Injury Case
While every situation is different, many personal injury plaintiffs are able to recover compensation for the following damages:
- Immediate emergency medical treatment
- Ongoing (including lifelong) medical care
- Lost income and/or wages
- Lost or reduced earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional and/or mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment
In some cases, you may be able to seek punitive damages meant to punish responsible parties when negligence is particularly egregious. Additionally, if your family member was killed as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, you may be able to seek recovery for funeral costs, cost of pre-death medical treatment, loss of financial contribution and support, emotional distress, and more.
