What damages can you recover in a personal injury case?

One of the most common questions we are asked is – How much money it your personal injury claim worth?

That is a hard question to answer because no two cases are the same. There are so many variables that go into an injury claim, including whether or not you contributed to the injury in any way. However, we will generally be looking at the following damages in a personal injury lawsuit:

  • All medical expenses related to the incident
  • Lost wages and benefits if you are unable to work
  • Loss of future income and future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering and mental anguish damages
  • Loss of consortium damages

If another person’s negligence contributed to the injury, we will work to seek punitive damages as well.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases We Handle

A death caused by another party or individual may give rise to a wrongful death claim. We recognize the untimely death of a loved one not only has emotional consequences, but financial ones, as well. We hold responsible parties accountable for their actions and the material and immaterial damages they cause. Some of the following types of accidents may lead to a wrongful death claim:

  • Workplace accidents
  • Accidents involving negligent security – for example, violent crime and sexual assault
  • Premise liability accidents
  • Drowning
  • Medical malpractice
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Deaths arising from defective products

What damages can you recover in a wrongful death case?

When discussing wrongful death lawsuits, families often want to know what these cases are worth. We know that it is impossible to put a value on the loss of a loved one. Nothing you recover in a lawsuit can erase what has happened to you. However, these cases can bring closure. In a wrongful death case, we are looking at the following economic and non-economic damages:

  • Any pre-death medical expenses
  • Pre-death pain and suffering of the victim
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of income and benefits of the decreased
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental anguish damages
  • Pain and suffering damages

If the negligence of another person, company, or entity contributed to the death of your loved one, we will seek punitive damages as well.

Why do you need an attorney for these cases?

Many people wonder if it is possible to handle personal injury cases on their own. While it is technically possible, it is certainly not recommended. In almost every personal injury lawsuit, the defendant in the case or their insurance company will have legal teams of their own. Their goal will be to do anything possible to lower any settlement they have to make.

Navigating the legal waters of these lawsuits can be complicated. Your Miami personal injury lawyer will have the knowledge and resources needed for these cases. What does a personal injury lawyer do?

Gather all evidence in the case

This includes the accident reports, police reports, video surveillance, photographs, and more.

Speak to eyewitnesses

It is important to speak to any witnesses and prepare them for trial.

Obtain medical records

Your attorney will gather all medical records in the case and have them analyzed by a trusted healthcare professional.

Secure expert witnesses

Expert witnesses may be necessary to review the medical records, calculate a victim’s total losses, reconstruct an accident scene, and testify in court.

Negotiate with all parties

Your attorney will be the ones to communicate with all parties involved, including throughout negotiations for a settlement that adequately covers all of your injury-related expenses.

Prepare for trial

Your lawyer will be ready to take your case to trial if the other side fails to offer a fair settlement.

Beware of an early settlement

When you have a good case, you can be sure the defendant will offer an early settlement. This happens all the time, regardless of the type of case. For car accidents, the insurance company of an at-fault driver may offer you $20,000 when, in reality, your damages are nearing $100,000 when you consider medical bills and lost income. For a wrongful death case, an at-fault party may offer you $250,000 so the case ends, and they avoid being exposed for negligence. What you may not realize is that they are insured for millions of dollars.

An early settlement is tempting for victims of injuries or family members of someone killed. Nobody wants a long and drawn out battle and you may need the money. Early settlement offers are almost always going to be much less than what the defendant is really willing to pay in these cases.

A skilled attorney will understand what is happened and advise you appropriately. Yes, there may be a time when settling is the best option, but not if you are being offered less than what you deserve. With the help of experts in economics, the team at Flanagan Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Law Firm, P.A., will be ready to get the compensation you deserve.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

As a victim of negligence, you might wonder if hiring a Miami personal injury attorney to handle your case is necessary. Many victims of injuries think they can handle the process of negotiating with insurance companies and demanding fair compensation on their own. However, working with a Miami personal injury law firm can prove advantageous for a few reasons:

  • Attorneys help protect victims from the unscrupulous tactics of insurance companies. Insurers will use several methods to get victims to settle for lower offers – or in some cases, denying a claim altogether. Lawyers are familiar with what personal injury claims are truly worth, and will demand fair compensation for both material and immaterial losses.
  • A lawyer will help identify the liable party and hold him or her accountable for negligence. In many cases, an investigation is required to determine who is financially responsible for an accident – in others, several parties may share liability. An attorney accounts for all these contingencies and conducts a thorough investigation to determine responsibility in an accident.
  • An attorney can identify just how much insurance coverage is available to the victim. For example, a victim of a serious car accident may be able to step outside of the no-fault system and file a claim against an at-fault driver with higher coverage limits.
  • An attorney will do all legwork and negotiation with insurance companies, allowing the victim to focus solely on recovering from injuries.
  • When traditional negotiation and settlement tactics fail, an attorney can prepare the case for trial and pursue litigation, if necessary.
