WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

The results of personal injury lawsuits can widely vary. While your personal injuries and the negligence of the defendant play a large part in receiving compensation, you want to be represented by an experienced lawyer who can help you through the process. Accidents are costly, and the goal of the judiciary process is to help you recoup these losses – in addition to levying punitive and other compensatory damages.

Compensatory judgments include medical treatment and damage to your property, as well as wages lost as a result of the accident. Additionally, you may also be awarded for the pain and suffering involved:

  • Medical Treatment: First and foremost, you’ll need to be compensated for any physical injuries suffered in your accident. The personal injury award always accounts for medical expenses, as well as physical therapy and any future required care related to injuries sustained in the accident.
  • Direct Money Lost – Property and Income: When your vehicle is damaged, a good attorney can make sure you recoup this loss in a successful lawsuit. Additionally, any wages or income lost as a result of injuries and the time off work that follows is awarded.
  • Distress: This covers mental/emotional distress as well as pain and suffering. Many people suffer continuous problems as a result of an accident. A well-presented case can result in a monetary judgment for emotional distress directly tied to a serious accident. Often, serious accidents cause anxiety, loss of sleep, and other psychological/physical ailments.

There are other considerations – such as loss of consortium and enjoyment – for which you can be compensated in a personal injury judgment. If you reside in Colorado, make sure you’re in good hands as you try and get your life back in order with a lawyer from Sloat & Nicholson, contact us at 800-873-3202.
