How Much Can I Recover Through a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
While each case is different, our personal injury attorneys can help you learn more about the benefits of filing and can give you the best chance of recovering compensation for the following types of damages:
Past and Future Medical Expenses – You may be able to recover compensation for hospital bills, rehabilitation expenses, and the cost of in-home care aides.
Lost Wages – If you missed work because of the accident or act of medical malpractice, you may be able to receive compensation for your lost income, salary, and wages. Moreover, if your ability to earn a living has been diminished by your injuries, you may also be eligible to receive compensation for your reduced earning capacity. Our attorneys regularly work with economic experts to explain to judges and juries the financial value of future lost income.
Pain and Suffering – You may be able to receive damages for physical pain and emotional suffering related to your injuries.
Punitive Damages – You may also be entitled to collect punitive damages if the accident or malpractice involved particularly reckless conduct or an intentional action to harm or deceive. Punitive damages are intended to discourage others from engaging in similarly dangerous or malicious conduct.
