What is Your Claim Worth?
This is a question we often get asked during an initial consultation. The value or worth of your claim will depend on the nature and extent of the injuries, damages and losses you may have sustained. For example, if the incident resulted only in property damage or in minor injuries such as scrapes or bruises that did not require you to seek medical treatment, then, your case may not be worth much.
However, if you did suffer injuries serious enough to require hospitalization, sought rehabilitative care such as physical therapy, spent money out of pocket for treatment and lost valuable income because you couldn't get back to work, you may be eligible to receive much more in terms of compensation.
Negligence is also a crucial element in a personal injury case, which might affect the amount of compensation you receive. For example, if you can prove that another person or entity was negligent and caused your injuries and resulting losses, the value of your claim could become higher. An experienced Costa Mesa personal injury lawyer can examine all aspects of your case and help you gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim.
Damages in a Personal Injury Case
What types of damages can you seek and obtain in a personal injury claim? This could vary from case to case and the circumstances. However, here are some of the common damages that are awarded in personal injury cases:
- Medical expenses: This includes emergency transportation costs, hospitalization, cost of surgery, medical equipment, medication and other types of treatment and care you may need to recover from your injuries.
- Rehabilitation costs: In addition to medical care, injured victims may need extensive rehabilitative care in order to completely recover from an injury and regain their strength and mobility. Often times, rehabilitative treatments such as physical therapy or chiropractic care are not covered by health insurance companies. In such cases, patients tend to pay for such necessary treatment out of pocket.
- Lost wages: When you are injured, you will need to take time off work. In some cases where individuals have suffered major injuries, they may even lose their jobs and be unable to return to work in the same capacity. If you have lost your livelihood as a result of your injuries, you may also be able to claim lost future income and benefits as part of your claim.
- Pain and suffering: This includes the physical pain you endure as the result of an injury as well as emotional trauma. Those who are severely injured, disfigured or scarred could, for example, suffer from depression. Dog attack victims for example suffer from anxiety or post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
