How much money can I expect for my injury case?
Questions that may affect the amount of Compensation you receive for your Case
Even though each case is different, there are certain questions that depending on their answers may help you and a lawyer figure out how much compensation you may be awarded for your case. Some of the most common questions include but are not limited to:
• Who caused the injury? If you were partially to blame for your injury it may lower the amount of compensation you receive.
• How severe are your injuries?
• Were you in the hospital?
• Did you need surgery?
• Will you need more medical attention later on?
• How many medical bills do you have?
• Did you lose any income because of your injury?
• Are you unable to work at your current job?
• Do you need to find a different job?
• Have you experienced loss of enjoyment in your daily activities due to your injury?
• Has your injury placed stress or more burdens on your family?
• Were you turned down for a promotion or raise at work because of your injury?
• Did you have a long recovery process for your injury?
• Were you unable to walk or drive because of your injury?
All of these questions and their answers help to decide how much compensation you may be awarded for your case. They help our lawyers determine how much compensation you may need for medical expenses, treatments and care now and in the future. They help determine if you need compensation for loss of income as well as any disability compensation if you are unable to work now or for any job training you may need in the future. Finally, they help determine how much compensation you may be entitled to for any physical, mental or emotional suffering you or your family may have been through because of your injury or injuries.
