We Fight to Maximize the Compensation You Recover
We are not just another settlement mill. Your personal injury lawyer will comprehensively evaluate your losses and pursue all avenues of compensation to ensure you don’t accept an undervalued settlement.
The damages you may be able to recover include:
These cover quantifiable financial losses resulting from your accident, like medical costs, lost wages, and caretaker expenses. This also includes the cost of ongoing medical care, doctor visits, and loss of future earning potential.
Even if you fully recover medically, you likely endured physical pain and emotional suffering during your recovery process. We may pursue compensatory damages for emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life in some cases.
In rare cases where the defendant acted maliciously or recklessly, you may qualify for punitive damages as a punishment on top of compensatory damages. These aim to discourage similar conduct by others in the future.
Other potential damages include:
- Disfigurement compensation for permanent scarring
- Loss of consortium for loss of love and companionship due to a spouse’s injury
- Property damage reimbursement if your belongings were destroyed in the accident
The court’s primary concern is ensuring you receive the compensation needed to make you whole again after experiencing a life-altering injury due to another’s negligence. Our goal is to provide effective representation to ensure you recover every dime you are owed.
