As we discussed in last week’s blog post, there are a host of damages that you might seek if you have been injured in a car accident. The types of damages that you seek and the amount of each specific one are dependent upon the factors in your case. We can help you to determine which types of compensation are valid for your case, as well as how much we should seek for each of those types.
We know that trying to put a monetary figure on your losses after a car accident can be rather difficult. Determining past medical expenses is by far the easiest aspect of this because all you have to do is gather the bills and you have the total. But, how will you determine future medical costs? In many cases, the answer to that is researching and calling in expert witnesses who can help to put a monetary value on the future medical expenses.
Other damages, such as lost wages and loss of consortium, can be equally as difficult. Lost wages might be easy if you have proof of what you would have earned while you were off of work. But, what if you aren’t sure when you will be able to go back to work? That is when determining the losses can be difficult. We can help you to determine how to figure that monetary amount.
As we investigate your case, we will look into each possible form of compensation. When we know which ones are applicable, we will discuss them with you so that you can decide how to proceed.
