Recovery of damages

Personal injury victims often overlook or undervalue damages. Insurance companies frequently exploit this lack of knowledge by offering settlements that inadequately compensate personal injury victims.

If you have been seriously injured, you are entitled to reasonable compensation, which may include:

  • Pain and suffering
    There is no formula or instrument to measure the pain and suffering of another human being; however, juries have liberal discretion in assessing damages. This is the primary area where assistance of experienced counsel can be beneficial.
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
    This damage is determined by your continued inability to work at your usual occupation resulting in financial loss of earnings or profits and future impairment of earning capacity.
  • Physical Impairment
    Once you complete your medical treatment and rehabilitation and reach maximum medical improvement, a medical healthcare professional can evaluate your degree of physical impairment based on injury, pain, and loss of mobility, sensation, and strength.
  • Loss of affection
    Under the law, family members who are dependent on the personal injury victim for emotional support are entitled to recover loss of love and affection.
  • Scarring
    We have plastic surgeons examine your scars to see if surgical revision is appropriate, and determine how much such a procedure would cost. Scars that cannot be removed require additional compensation.
  • Medical bills
    Personal injury victims are entitled to recover the full and fair value of their medical bills.
  • Punitive damages
    Punitive damages may be awarded when clear and convincing evidence shows that the defendant acted with malice, fraud, gross negligence, or oppressiveness that was not the result of a mistake or fact or law, honest error in judgment, overzealousness, mere negligence, or other human failing.
