When you are injured in an accident you will probably have a lot of questions regarding your personal injury case. One of the main questions is, “How much compensation can I get for my accident?” You will have many costs associated with your accident including medical bills, damaged property, and more. If your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation to help with these costs as well as for emotional suffering that’s associated with the injury. Also, you want justice to be served.
There is no way to predict just how much your case is worth because each case is as unique as the people involved. It can be frustrating to not have an idea of what you deserve and what your legal options are. By consulting with an injury lawyer in New Jersey you can find out what your rights and legal options are as well as how much you can expect to collect in damages.
When you file a personal injury claim there are a variety of aspects the insurance companies, juries, and judges will examine to determine what kind of compensation you need and deserve.
Factors Considered for Your Compensation
- Medical bills accrued from your injury.
- Future medical costs that will arise from your injury.
- Lost earnings from time off work.
- Future earnings you would have made (if your injury prevents you from returning to work).
- Pain and suffering you experienced as a result of the accident.
- Any future pain and suffering that will stem from your accident.
The insurance companies will try to get you to accept an initial offer without the help of an attorney. It is their job to limit the amount of money you receive for your accident, but with the help of a lawyer you can avoid this. You may want your money as quickly as possible, but you have no way of knowing what costs will arise in the future. An attorney will fully investigate the circumstances surround your specific case as well as fully establish liability. Also it is important that settlement comes after you have concluded medical treatment so that you are fully aware of the past and future costs of your injury or any new injuries that are a direct result of the accident.
