What Can You Expect in a Clifton Personal Injury Case?
In a personal injury claim, your lawyer builds a case against the at-fault party for the purpose of recovering damages. Losses can include medical bills, lost pay, or ways in which the accident had a negative impact on your life. You can expect your attorney to gather evidence and present a compelling case to the other party’s insurance company.
The insurance company can either accept the claim as-is, offer a different settlement amount, or reject your claim. Your attorney’s goal is to reclaim 100 percent of your damages based on the extent of your losses. If the insurance company does not settle, your lawyer can also represent you in court if you choose to file a lawsuit.
Since personal injury claims are often complex, a Clifton personal injury lawyer can manage your case and handle all correspondence while you heal from your injuries. To learn more about your options and get started, call (201) 585-9111.
Damages in a Personal Injury Case
Damages in a personal injury case may include economic and non-economic losses as well as punitive damages.
Economic damages are calculable financial losses. They may include lost wages, bonuses, benefits, medical bills, rehabilitation, property repairs, disability, or living adjustments. We can add up your economic losses to determine the financial consequences of the accident.
Non-economic losses represent the ways in which the accident impacted your life. For instance, you may have suffered extreme pain leading to emotional anxiety or depression. We can account for these types of losses, as well as loss of consortium and disability.
If your injuries occurred due to someone’s gross negligence, reckless behavior, or intent to harm, then a judge may award you a cash sum. Punitive damages are exemplary damages that the court uses to punish a defendant for outrageous conduct.
In a wrongful death claim, your family may be eligible for compensation for death-related expenses and losses. You may be able to request a settlement for burial and funeral costs, pain and suffering of the victim, pre-death medical costs, or loss of household income.
Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation based on the extent of your losses. Do not let the insurance company determine what your case is worth. Let our law firm assess your damages to ensure that your losses are covered. We can fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.
Proving Your Personal Injury Case
Negligent parties in a personal injury case may include another driver, property owner, pet owner, manufacturer, or an employer. To prove your personal injury case, your attorney must firmly establish that the other party is responsible for your injuries and subsequent losses.
Our legal team can help you obtain evidence of fault and liability, such as:
- Eyewitness statements.
- Video footage or photos.
- Expert witnesses.
- Medical reports.
- Accident reports.
- Property repair documents.
The evidence that we present in your case should support your claim and prove the extent of your losses. Therefore, it is important to gather and protect all documents relating to your case. Make sure you provide your attorney with all medical documents or accident reports.
