The variables that can determine your compensation in a case with an injury attorney Boca Raton.
If you find yourself injured and thinking about filing a personal injury lawsuit with an injury attorney Boca Raton regarding a car accident, slip and fall, medical malpractice or any other kind of injury, you may be wondering “What is my case worth?” The answer is largely a question of the “damages” caused by the subject accident — what your injuries have cost you financially, physically, and perhaps emotionally. A lawyer can help determine what is fair compensation for your personal injury. In some instances, the money you may be entitled to is relatively simple to calculate…like reimbursement for property damage (i.e. car replacement), medical bills, and wages lost. It’s harder to place a monetary value on pain and suffering or the inability to maintain the type of lifestyle you had before the accident.
Below are just a few different variables that are taken into consideration when quantifying the compensation amount:
- Healthcare/Medical Bills – The cost of any medical care associated with the accident — reimbursement for treatment you’ve already received and compensation for the estimated cost of medical care you’ll need in the future because of the accident.
- Lost wages/IncomeYou may be entitled to compensation for the accident’s impact on your income. This is not just limited to money you’ve lost because of the accident but also money you could potentially lose in the future due to your involvement in the accident.
- Property Damage/Loss.If any vehicle or other items of value were damaged because of the accident, you’ll likely be entitled to reimbursement for repairs or compensation for the fair value of the property that was damaged/lost.
- Pain and/or suffering. You may be entitled to get compensation for the pain and discomfort you suffered during the accident and in its aftermath.
