Accident Injury Claims
If you have been injured in an accident, you will have to notify the at-fault parties insurance company. Ideally, you will be offered compensation for all of the losses you have suffered in the accident. Unfortunately, it is common for individuals and insurance companies to deny responsibility for the accident or for an insurance company to offer an inadequate settlement. This is why victims of serious injuries have it in their best interest to have a skilled personal injury lawyer on their side, who will fight to protect their legal rights.
A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help you file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. A personal injury claim is a form of civil litigation that can result in a settlement either through negotiations or through court proceedings. The victim will have to prove that the defendant was careless and that his or her carelessness or negligence resulted in the injuries and losses that you sustained.
How Much is a Claim Worth?
The value of a claim is directly related to the losses suffered by victims. Therefore, all losses will be considered in the lawsuit. Here are a few examples of damages that may be included in a personal injury claim:
- Medical treatment: All past and future medical bills related to the injuries suffered in the accident should be included in the claim.
- Loss of earnings: If you have lost wages as a result of missing work, you may be able to seek compensation for lost earnings as well. In instances where serious injuries are suffered, compensation may be available for lost future income. In cases where victims suffer lifelong disabilities, compensation may be claimed for loss of livelihood as well.
- Property damage and/or loss: Vehicles and other damaged items may be eligible for reimbursement.
- Pain and suffering: The court will take into consideration your non-financial losses as well. Did you suffer substantial pain because of the accident? Are you still in pain? Have you become stressed or depressed since the accident? Have you experienced a loss in the quality of your life because of your injuries?
- Punitive damages: In cases involving egregious recklessness, compensation may also be available for punitive damages. This is meant to punish the wrongdoer and deter such behavior in the future.
Determining If You Have a Claim
