Have you or your loved one been seriously injured because of another person’s negligence? Whether it’s a motorcycle accident, a fall at work on a construction site, a head injury, or a tragic wrongful death, it probably feels like your world has changed forever. And it has. Serious personal injury accidents are life-altering. Unfortunately, the trauma and stress of times like this often cause victims and their families to forget about or ignore their legal rights under personal injury law. It makes sense that you might not feel emotionally capable of dealing with the legal battle of getting the justice your family deserves, but that’s where an experienced and compassionate personal injury attorney steps in. At the Law Office of Brian K. Branch, we do the fighting for you!
When assessing your eligibility for a personal injury case, it’s essential to have a personal injury attorney help you understand all the ways you might be entitled to receive compensation. When you’re seriously injured, there are laws protecting your rights to claim compensation for each part of life that is affected. Keep reading to understand the three main areas where victims can and should rightfully claim compensation.
1: Physical Damage
Physical damage covers the actual bodily injuries incurred during a personal injury accident. The victim in a personal injury case – and sometimes the victim’s loved ones – are often entitled to significant compensation for the loss of function or physical ability due to the negligence involved in a personal injury accident.
2: Financial Damage
Financial damage can cover related expenses including but not limited to: the medical bills required by your bodily injuries, including follow up treatments and ongoing physical therapy, any lifelong care or medical attention needed due to the accident, and more. Financial damage also includes any other property damaged in the accident, loss of wages due to missing work, the cost of any plans that needed to be canceled or altered because of the accident, and possibly more!
3. Psychological Damage
According to Nolo, the “pain and suffering” component of a personal injury case also includes mental suffering. Personal injury accidents often cause lasting psychological trauma, especially if there was a serious bodily injury or death. In serious accidents, the victim is often entitled to compensation for suffering emotional trauma. According to AllLaw, “pain and suffering” can be calculated by multiplying the actual amount owed through lost wages and medical bills by a number deemed appropriate to cover the stress and inconvenience of a life-altering accident.
