What Damages Can I Recover?

Damages are the sum of money claimed or awarded in an injury case, paid as compensation to the victim of an act of negligence. There are several forms of damages that can be pursued when negotiating a settlement, or a jury may award at trial. These include:

Economic Damages

This is a calculation comprised of the actual expenses incurred in association with your injury. They can include the following:

  • Medical Expenses: The costs of treatment from physicians, surgeons, nurses, rehabilitation, medical equipment, hospitals, ambulance, medications, etc.
  • Lost Wages: If your ability to work has been compromised due to your injuries, the amount of lost income must be carefully calculated.
  • Future Income: Lost opportunities in expected bonuses, pay increases over time, retirement benefits, stock, and other lost income.

Non-Economic Damages

This is often the highest component in a personal injury case because injuries can severely impact one’s ability to enjoy life. Non-economic damages are intended to compensate the injured person for the negative impact on his or her life due to the injury. These damages can include:

  • Pain and suffering: A serious injury has a critical impact upon the individual who must face significant and often far-reaching physical effects, such as painful surgeries and lengthy recovery times.
  • Emotional anguish: When life has been changed forever, the emotional distress is addressed in financial terms.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: The normal activities of your life may now be impossible to experience, such as running, cycling, walking, hunting, fishing, etc. An injury could prevent a parent from being able to pick up or play with their children. Our lives have value and the damages paid should reflect these personal losses.
  • Loss of consortium: The damage to the relationship with your spouse or partner that results from an injury, such as the inability to engage in physical intimacy or to provide emotional support.

1

After an accident, your primary focus should be on your health and seeking quality medical care. Contact your insurance company to report the accident. Expect the at-fault insurance company to contact you for a statement.

If the at-fault insurance company starts contacting you, you should begin thinking about hiring a Jackson car accident lawyer. Remember, the at-fault insurance company is not on your side!

2

Once you hire our team, we go to work and relieve you of the hassle of dealing with insurance companies and managing your claim.

We begin investigating the accident, collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, ordering your medical records, and making sure your medical expenses are properly paid.

3

Once you have completed your medical treatment, or we know how much additional treatment you will need, we demand a settlement of your claim from the at-fault insurance company.

We negotiate settlement amounts with insurance adjusters on your behalf, and we will not settle your claim without your consent.

4

If the insurance company refuses to settle your claim for what it is worth, a lawsuit is filed. Most times, the person responsible for the accident has insurance, and their insurance company will step in to defend against your claim. Rarely do personal injury lawsuits seek to collect money from personal assets. Instead, the at-fault insurance company is responsible for paying your claim.

After the lawsuit is filed, the claim goes through the discovery process. During this time, the plaintiffs and defendants gather information and evidence about the claim. This process prepares the parties for trial in the event the claim cannot be settled.

5

Before the case goes to trial, we will make a final attempt to settle your claim. Sometimes, personal injury claimants are paid more money after enduring the discovery process. Most times, we negotiate a settlement with the lawyer for the insurance company.

If your lawyers are unable to resolve the claim, we may attempt resolution through mediation. At mediation, a neutral third-party is hired to help settle the claim. Sometimes, the court will offer its assistance in helping to get the case settled.

6

If your case simply cannot be settled for fair and reasonable compensation, it goes to trial. At trial, we present evidence about the case facts, your injuries, and damages. Trials are oftentimes decided by a jury, but in limited circumstances a judge may hear and decide your case.

We know that trials are stressful, so we make every effort to settle your case before trial.
