Compensation Benefits for Bodily Injury Claim

If you’ve been injured, you may have arrived at this page wondering if you are entitled to compensation and what types of compensation may be available. The good news is that you’ve arrived at the right place. 

At Morgan and Morgan, we specialize in helping injured clients fight for and recover the compensation they deserve to move forward after an injury. Depending upon the nature of your case and where you live, you may be entitled to compensatory damages, punitive damages, or both—and our talented legal team is here to help you with that process.

 An injury can disrupt your routine and take away your enjoyment. It can leave you feeling overwhelmed about how you will pay your medical bills and provide for your family when you may be unable to work. Bills keep arriving. Your mortgage still needs to be paid. Your family still needs to be provided for. You need and deserve compensation, and we’ll be here to help you through that process.

 Depending upon where you live, available compensation may vary. Generally, however, there are two types of damages—compensatory and punitive.

Compensatory damages

These are typically damages intended to reimburse an injured party in some way for the harm that they suffered. They might include damages like:

  • Medical expenses: When you’re injured, you should focus on rest, recovery, and enjoying time with those you love—not on worrying about how to pay a stack of mounting medical bills. Compensation may be available for past, present, and future medical bills.
  • Property damage: Sometimes an accident not only causes injury to your body, but it also damages your property as well. If you were injured in a car accident, for example, your vehicle may have been damaged or rendered entirely unusable. You may be able to seek compensation for that damaged or lost property.
  • Lost earnings: If you have been injured and are unable to work, you may be able to receive damages not only for the earnings you have already lost but for anticipated lost earnings in the future as well.  
  • Loss of consortium or wrongful death: In some cases, you may be able to seek damages for loss of companionship and enjoyment of life with those you love. If you tragically lost a loved one in an accident, you may be able to seek compensation for that loss as well.
  • Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering damages are, generally, damages that are intended to compensate the victim for the physical pain caused by the accident and the discomfort caused by necessary medical treatment. It also includes mental anguish that might have been caused by the accident, including conditions like anxiety, insomnia, and other psychological issues. 

Punitive Damages

In some more rare cases punitive damages are also available. These are damages that are essentially intended to "punish” a defendant.  They are often reserved for cases where the defendant’s behavior went beyond mere negligence and was so reckless, reprehensible, or dangerous that additional damages are warranted.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
