When you have suffered a personal injury, you are entitled to compensation from the person who harmed you. No matter how minor or severe the injuries may appear to you, you may not realize the extent of the toll being harmed has taken on your life, the harm that has been caused to others, and the future effect of being injured. Since so much is at stake, the lawyers at Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law take cases seriously. When you have been injured, you can be confident that the attorneys at our firm will stop at nothing to recover the damages that you are owed.
Is it Worth it to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim?
Once liability for an accident has been established, the responsible parties owe the injured person a monetary award to cover the total amount of damages that are owed. While it is clear that no monetary compensation will be able to cover the trauma imposed by the accident, these monetary awards are intended to cover a variety of different means to compensate for the injury. In a personal injury case, you can recover damages for:
- Medical care you have needed and will need in the future
- Lost income as a result of being out of work
- Future income you may lose as a result of this injury
- Loss of property
- Pain and suffering
- Psychological impact resulting from the injury
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Effects on personal relationships
In addition to these damages, anyone that has been injured may be able to seek punitive damages, which are not intended to compensate for the injury, but rather punish the liable party for causing harm to begin with. Punitive damages are an additional cost to the negligent party that works to deter them from acting in the same manner or discouraging others from acting the same way.
