What Compensation Can I Receive?
Every personal injury case is different, which means that there is no simple or straightforward way to determine how much your case may be worth. In general, however, injury victims may seek compensation to account for serious and life-altering injuries, as well as any financial losses related to that injury, such as lost earning potential. They may also seek restitution for their psychological pain, as accidents can be incredibly traumatic for the victim.
Common damages awarded in personal injury settlements and verdicts:
- Medical bills, including doctor’s visits, treatments, and procedures
- Physical pain and suffering
- Medical devices, prescriptions, and supplies
- Emotional trauma
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Counseling and mental health assistance
- Home modifications and assisted living accommodations for disabilities
- Property damage
- Past and future lost wages
- Lost earning potential
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
While you may be able to file an insurance claim after most accidents, having an experienced Bountiful personal injury lawyer by your side can make a significant difference for your case. Insurers tend to underestimate the value of your claim from the start to maximize profit. By hiring an attorney, you will have a dedicated negotiator and representative throughout your case; one who is knowledgeable about all the rules, statutes, and limitations for your claim.
