Personal injury cases are often misunderstood. The media portrays them as get-rich-quick schemes, and movies and TV present plaintiffs as greedy people looking for a quick payout.
This negative portrayal is simply false. In reality, personal injury cases are often necessary, and they can be someone’s only choice for justice.
If you’ve been hurt through no fault of your own, you are affected in more ways than just the physical. Most likely, your finances are harmed as well. You must spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on treatment. Your employment suffers, too, and you need a way to recoup that cost.
Our society is built around money. Spending large amounts on anything can result in serious woes. You could lose your property or even go hungry.

Damages You Could Receive in a Lawsuit
Personal injury suits are designed to pay you back for the damage you suffered, so the compensation you could win is also called “damages.”
Damages come in two forms: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages directly pay you back for the money you lost. Any expense directly related to your injury can be included.
You can have all past and future medical expenses recovered. This includes everything, such as doctor visits, prescriptions, surgery, therapy, and more. These days, people are also more aware of the importance of mental health. If your injury caused mental distress or trauma, you can be repaid for all your mental health costs as well.
Injuries can also have a huge impact on your job or overall career. You often miss work during recovery, losing income. If the injury is severe, it can impact your ability to continue working, get new work, or advance in your career. This is considered lost “potential” income. You can receive all this lost income in a lawsuit.
Depending on the nature of the accident, you may also have suffered property damage. This is often the case in a car accident. You can receive money for anything that was damaged, destroyed, or replaced because of the incident. In some cases, this could even include the cost of veterinary treatment when your pet is harmed.
Non-economic damages pay you back for the pain and suffering you incurred. No amount of money can heal you, and it certainly cannot give you back the time you lost or make your body feel better. Pain and suffering damages can, however, give you a brighter future. People who have been injured often need to remodel their entire lives, and this extra compensation can help.
Our lawyers can calculate a fair, just amount for your compensation. We will include all your expenses and possible future costs. Then, we will account for the time you suffered and the extent of your pain. We will work hard to gather the necessary evidence, helping prove your case in court and getting you the justice you deserve.
