file7571263662948Have you or someone you love been injured? If so, it’s important to understand how to navigate the process of recovering damages.

You are entitled to recover any and all damages caused by another party’s negligence or carelessness. Regardless of whether you were injured in a trucking accident, while at work, or while shopping for groceries, working with an experienced personal injury attorney is important.

Your attorney will estimate the worth of your case based on a number of factors, including:

  • Type of medical treatment
  • Length of medical treatment
  • Extent of injury
  • Permanence of injury
  • Applicable insurance limits available for recovery

An experienced personal injury attorney will not charge you a dime until you are compensated for your injury. You are entitled to recover funds related to medical bills, prescriptions, and lost wages resulting from the accident. You are also entitled to receive compensation for the pain and suffering as well as the mental anguish you suffered due to the accident.

If your vehicle was involved in the accident, you are entitled to the lesser of the cost of repairing your vehicle or the fair market value. If you were unable to use your vehicle due to damages, you are entitled to compensation for any days you go without the use of your vehicle or the cost of a rental car.

You are also entitled to compensation for other damages, such as permanent injuries, property damage, towing costs, etc. Your spouse and children are also entitled to receive funds for problems related to your injuries.

Experience really does matter. An experienced and proven personal injury attorney can professionally evaluate your case and provide you with important knowledge and legal advice regarding how or if you should move forward.
