Amount Of Damages

The monetary compensation imposed by law for loss or harm resulting from injury to person, property, or reputation is known as "damages". While there is no simple equation to determine the amount of damages a victim may be owed, an experienced attorney can help you sort through the myriad factors involved in making sure that your case is not settled for less than it is worth.

The attorneys will first meet with you to discuss the details of your case in full depth of detail. Some of the monetary factors to be considered to determine the worth of your injuries include property damage, lost income, and the amount of medical expenses you have incurred. Personal elements of your case would encompass the pain and suffering you have experienced as well as emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and lost opportunities for the future. Our knowledgeable attorneys will also consider other key factors in your case such as the availability and credibility of witnesses as well as the degree of liability and perceived credibility of the defendant. Finally, your attorney will actively pursue the supportive opinion of experts in any relevant field to prove the extent of your injuries if necessary.

Although the amount of damages awarded in a personal injury case is never guaranteed, it is imperative that a victim has an attorney that is capable of pursuing each case to a beneficial result.
