Key concerns after a personal injury

A serious injury may leave you with numerous questions, including how you will pay for medical treatment, how you’ll support your loved ones if you can no longer work and how long it will take to receive the compensation you need. A knowledgeable attorney will help you pinpoint the exact cause of your personal injury, determine the current and future costs of your medical care and estimate your potential loss of income.

The following are some of the most common types of injuries individuals suffer, often spurring the need to seek monetary damages:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Chronic pain
  • Illnesses due to toxic exposure
  • Medical and surgical injuries
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head and brain injuries

As you can imagine, some of the injuries may only require a few weeks to recover from, while others could involve long-term care and rehabilitation. The severity of your injury will play a significant role in the amount of compensation you should receive. The process of determining damages is based on factors like the effect an injury has on the victim’s lifestyle, the age of the victim, the amount of ability lost and how long it will take for a full physical recovery to take place — if it’s possible at all.

Special considerations for wrongful death claims

After the death of a loved one due to the reckless actions or negligence of another person or entity, it can be frustrating to deal with insurance adjusters and attorneys. You need a wrongful death lawyer who understands your concerns and takes on your case with a high level of competence and compassion. Your lawyer’s responsibilities include negotiating with insurance companies for fair compensation to cover medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of financial support, loss of companionship and emotional pain and suffering.
