How Much Will Your Personal Injury Claim Be Worth?

Posted By Boswell & Dunlap LLP || 12-Jul-2016

If you or someone you love has been injured due to another’s negligence, you’re probably wondering how much money you can recover by filing a personal injury claim. Victims and families who suffer harm in preventable accidents can experience tremendous physical, emotional, and financial setbacks – sometimes to the point of altering lives. We know full and fair compensation needs to be the ultimate priority in personal injury cases, and we know clients want to understand the value of their claims.

At Boswell & Dunlap LLP, our personal injury lawyers have recovered millions in compensation on behalf of victims throughout Bartow and Polk County. Although all of our clients needed positive outcomes to cover their losses, their cases and needs were unique.

Because every case is different, it’s difficult to determine the precise value of a personal injury claim. As our attorneys have decades of experience in personal injury law, they can provide you with a better understanding of the damages you may be able to recover, and a better idea of the general value of your claim.

Filing a personal injury claim will give you the opportunity to recover financial compensation for damages resulting from your accident / injury – including physical, psychological, emotional, and financial damages. Examples include:

  • Medical bills
  • Cost of future medical care
  • Missed work wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of consortium

In addition to physical, financial, and emotional damages, some victims may be able to pursue what’s known as punitive damages, or exemplary damages. Punitive damages are awarded in cases involving egregious negligence. Drunk driving accidents, for example, can result in awards for punitive damages because at-fault drivers are well aware that driving under the influence is a dangerous, negligent, and illegal act.

Speaking with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your accident can help you gain a better understanding of your rights and what’s needed to recover the compensation you deserve.
