Financial Compensation in Serious Injury Claims

By Doan Law Firm  Jan. 29, 2011 10:35a

When a person sustains particularly serious injuries in an accident or due to another's conduct, the resulting injury claim may involve a significant amount of  financial compensation to help the injured party rebuild and move on with his or her life. The compensation awarded in personal injury claims is meant to help the injured party rebuild to a similar situation as before the incident occurred, and with catastrophic injuries the amount of rebuilding that is necessary is often great.

An injured party may be able to seek financial damages for:

  • Medical expenses, including medication, medical supplies, doctor visits, hospital stays, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and travel to and from all medical appointments;
  • Future medical care and expenses of any kind;
  • Lost wages from missed work while injured, as well as loss of future earnings if the victim is unable to work in the same field or is unable to work at all; and
  • Compensation for emotional trauma, pain and suffering.

All of this can make a tremendous difference for a victim and his or her family, enabling them to seek the best medical care and continued treatment as necessary. It can take one of the most difficult burdens off the victim's shoulders by providing for the earnings that he or she would have made if the accident had not occurred. But how can you seek the full amount of financial compensation that you need and deserve? This is where an attorney will play an important role.

A lawyer experienced in handling serious injury claims can fight on your behalf, seeking the highest amount of financial compensation possible. This may include conducting a full investigation into the matter to prove who was at fault and then working with medical professionals, economists and psychologists who can act as expert witnesses to prove the true value of your claim. An attorney will have the resources and knowledge to know how to persevere in spite of an insurance company's efforts to avoid paying the full value of your claim.
