What Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
Leave a reply
Without knowing the particulars of your case and your injury, it is difficult–nearly impossible–to say what your personal injury claim is worth. Of course, we can give you generic information that is helpful in gauging ballpark figures for your claim. Naturally, the more severe your injuries, the most money you can look forward to receiving. Also, your injuries can affect various aspects of your life. They can affect your mental and emotional state, as well as your physical state. Therefore, you can sue for the physical and emotional pain that the at-fault party caused you. And, of course, you can always sue for any out-of-pocket medical expenses. Compensation for personal injury suits are broken into economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages would be the cost of the ambulance ride, the hospital fees, the cost of physical therapy (if it applies), and so on. You can also sue for any time that you had to take off from work. For example, if you make $10 an hour, you work eight hour shifts, and you miss five days as a result of someone else’s negligence, the court will order the at-fault party to pay you $400. Noneconomic damages are your emotional damages, such as loss of consortium between you and your spouse and pain and suffering. Because noneconomic damages are difficult for a layperson to calculate and understand, let the qualified attorneys at Rasmussen and Miner help you. We have ample years of knowledge, and we have ensured that our clients are fairly compensated for their injuries. Your personal injury may be worth a couple thousand or as much as a few million, so don’t take it lightly.
