About Your Injuries and Losses

An injured person may bring a claim to recover compensation for the full amount of their medical and rehabilitative expenses, physical and mental pain and suffering, past and future lost income, permanent impairment and disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and property damage. Family members may also be able to recover compensation for their mental anguish and the loss of companionship and assistance.

The following are just some examples of the harms and losses for which we obtain compensation for our clients on motor vehicle accident related personal injury cases:

Medical Bills:  All reasonable medical charges for necessary treatment of injuries caused by the negligent party are part of your damages – not just your own out-of-pocket payments. To prove your case, we will obtain all of your medical records and bills.

Lost Income and Benefits:  If you have lost time from work because of the accident or the injuries you suffered, you may have a claim for lost income and/or employment benefits. We will work with you and your employer to confirm the amount of your lost income and/or benefits.

General Damages:  You are entitled to recover general damages for, among other things, the nature, extent, and duration of the injury; the pain, discomfort, suffering, disability, disfigurement, and anxiety already experienced, and reasonably probable to be experienced in the future as a result of the injury; and, loss of enjoyment of life, that is, the participation in life’s activities to the quality and extent normally enjoyed before the injury.

Information to Prove My Case

When it comes to the information necessary to prove your case, we will help you identify all of the harms and losses that may be related to your accident and injury claim. Then, we will obtain all necessary documentation to prove your claim, including medical records and bills, reasonable transportation costs related to the treatment and care for your injuries, future medical care, lost wages, future loss of earnings, the effect that the accident and the resulting injuries had on you and your family, and the effect that they had on your lives.
