Personal Injury Damages
Personal injury victims typically may recover special damages and general damages. Special damages include medical bills and lost wages. General damages include your pain and suffering.
Personal injury damages cover all of your medical bills. Also, you can recover your future medical costs.
You may recover any lost income. Some injuries also harm your future earning capacity. If so, you can also recover damages for those losses.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering damages include compensation for your physical wounds and emotional distress.
Personal Injury Compensation Factors
Generally, severer injury claims settle for more money than milder injury claims. Here are some of the factors that impact the value of your personal injury claim:
- Recovery period length
- Long-term consequences, such as scars and disabilities
- Hospital stays
- Strong impact forces
- Medication regimens
- Disabling injuries
Why Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
There are many personal injury compensation calculators on the internet. Most of them are quite unreliable. In fact, insurers create those calculators to persuade injury claimants that they have weak claims.
Also, those calculators don’t consider the venue (county) in which your claim is filed. City metro claims are typically more valuable than claims filed in rural areas.
You might also think your claim isn’t that valuable because your injuries haven’t been fully evaluated. Your personal injury lawyer will ensure you receive the best medical care. That way, you’ll know the true value of your claim.
