The purpose of any personal injury lawsuit is to compensate a victim after an accident that was someone else’s fault. The goal, meanwhile, is to get enough compensation to help the victim get as close as possible back to what their life was like before it was disrupted by the accident.
Part of that is making sure the victim doesn’t have to pay accident-related bills out of their own pocket. It is easy to prove how much a victim is owed for medical expenses and lost wages just by looking at the total of their medical bills and missed paychecks. But bills are far from the only consequence of an injury-causing accident, and other consequences may have a far greater impact on your life.
How do you calculate the value of physical pain? What about
the stress and emotional harm an accident causes? No amount of money can ever take
away that pain. But we can get close to assigning a monetary value by examining
what effect your injury has had on your life.
Accidents have many consequences, both short-term and
long-term. It is important to be as open and honest with your lawyer as you can
about all the ways that your injury has disrupted your life. This will help us accurately
judge how much compensation you are owed. Keeping a daily journal after your
accident can also help you document these post-accident changes.
The stress of a severe accident can also harm
the emotional health of your relationships with friends, family, neighbors, and
Head injuries can also cause loss of memory
and attention, mental acuity, and even any of the five senses.
If you’ve suffered a permanent injury, you
will likely be owed far more money if you are in your 20s than you would if you
are in your 60s, since your compensation will be based on how many years you
will live with your injury.
This means we can’t judge the amount of
compensation you may be owed solely on the injury, but rather on how the injury
affected you specifically.
At Dudley DeBosier, we believe everyone deserves a chance for fair compensation when they’ve been injured through no fault of their own. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation consultations, and if you decide to hire us, you don’t owe us anything unless we win you money.
We know that no injury is just an injury. It’s a severe disruption to your life that can persist for weeks or years down the road. We want to help you get back to where you were before, and where you should have been all along. Call today, and we’ll fight to get you the full compensation you deserve.
