How We Can Help Following An Accident
Often the first steps you take following an incident are the most important. Rather than sitting back and waiting to see how you heal, it’s often a better idea to take steps to protect your legal interests right away. When you reach out to us, that’s exactly what we will do.
First, our Nesconset personal injury law firm will conduct a full investigation into your personal injury case. We will gather all accident reports, witness statements, insurance information, photos, videos and medical records. We will even hire experts in engineering and accident reconstruction, if needed.
Next, we will complete and file all necessary claim forms with the insurance carriers involved with your claim. We will also handle all written and verbal communications with them. We will supply them with all the necessary information to support your claim.
Once you have healed from your injuries, we will negotiate on your behalf seeking to recover fair compensation for you for your injuries. If the insurance carrier refuses to offer a fair settlement, our Nesconset personal injury lawyers will pursue your claim in court fighting to get you the compensation you are entitled to receive.
Who Will Pay If I Am Awarded A Settlement?
Many people are concerned with pursuing a claim for accidental injuries caused by other members of their community. They feel as though it is somehow greedy or unneighborly. The fact is that for the vast amount of injury claims there is a multi-billion dollar insurance company responsible for compensating you for your injuries and not the person that caused the accident. For example, if you are injured in a car collision, the at fault party has car insurance that will be responsible for compensating you. If you are injured on another party’s property, the owner will have insurance that will be responsible for your injury claim. If you are injured at a jobsite, the party responsible for the jobsite will have insurance that will compensate you for their negligence.
These large insurance companies are in the business of providing financial protection to their clients. They fully expect to have claims filed against them for their insured’s negligence and make a substantial profit providing insurance. By deciding to file a claim for your injuries, you are not protecting the negligent party, you are only increasing the profits of an already extremely profitable insurance company.
Recoverable Damages in A Personal Injury Law Suit
If you are injured as a result of someone else’s actions, you may be entitled to recover compensation for any losses that you incur. There are two categories of losses, economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages include losses such medical bills, lost wages and out of pocket expenses. Modifications to your home, medicines, bandages and travel expenses to medical visits are examples of out of pocket expenses. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish and lost enjoyment of life. Not being able to exercise, play with your kids or care for your home are all examples of lost enjoyment of life.
Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages are abstract and hard to assign a dollar amount to. In order to arrive at a fair amount for non-economic damages, attorneys will often look at similar cases to yours that have been settled or tried in the past. Those past cases are a good guide in determining non-economic damages for your claim.
Further, if your injuries are permanent you are entitled to future non-economic damages. Also, if your injuries require future treatment, you are entitled to future economic damages. Your total damages are arrived at by adding your past and future economic damages to your past and future non-economic damages together. The best way to determine how much compensation you are entitled to following an incident is to call our Nesconset personal injury lawyers for a free comprehensive look into your situation.
