If you have been injured by the negligent or wrongful acts of another, you may be entitled to compensation. When meeting with one of our intake experts for a free consultation, many of our clients ask us what this actually means.
“Compensation” in a person injury, wrongful death, or similar case is a monetary award that is the result of a settlement agreement or an amount awarded in a verdict.
Compensation is meant to make a person “whole” again as much as possible. The compensation you may be entitled to depends on many factors, including the seriousness of the injury and who was at fault, among many other factors. Typical compensation in personal injury cases are for:
Loss of earning capacity
Pain and suffering
Diminished capacity for the enjoyment of life
Loss of companionship from a loved one
Compensation is paid by the company, organization, or persons who are responsible for the injury, or their insurance carrier, or a combination thereof. In some cases there are several potential defendants. For example, if you are severely injured by a drunk driver, potential defendants include the driver and the car owner.
We make it a point to regularly communicate with our clients to ensure they are informed about what is happening with their cases. It is important to us that the people who entrust us with their cases do not feel like a number. We strive to make sure our clients understand their rights, the process, and what compensation they may be entitled to – and what exactly that means.
