What Compensation Can I Get?
The first question almost every personal injury lawyer gets during a case review is, “How much is my case worth?” While we cannot answer with specific numbers until we look at your case, we can give you some idea of the types of compensation you may be able to recover.
The most straightforward type of compensation you can seek is your medical bills. Medical bills include expenses from your visits to the doctor, medications, medical procedures like physical therapy and surgeries, transportation to and from your medical appointments, and other medical care-related expenses.
Many injured people also seek compensation for their lost wages. This includes wages that you haven’t been able to earn since you were injured or in recovery. If you are permanently or temporarily disabled from your injuries, this could also include the wages you would have earned in the future that you won’t earn due to your continued injury.
Other Losses and Injuries
Next are “invisible injuries.” These include losses like emotional trauma, damage to your relationships like loss of consortium and loss of comfort or companionship, loss of your ability to enjoy life, PTSD, mood swings, and other emotional damages like pain and suffering that are not as easy to give financial value.
