Clients ask how much money I can recover if injured?

First you have to be injured by someone else’s negligence or wrongful act.
If so, you have the right to file a personal injury claim and recover compensation

Your compensation for your injuries and damages depend on the severity of your injury and whether or not your are partially to blame.

There are 2 types of damages which can result in a victim’s recovery compensation:

Compensatory and Punitive.

Compensatory damages are awarded to compensate a plaintiff for their injuries and damages.

Examples:

  • Medical costs current and future
  • Lost wages
  • The inability for the victim to do things they previously did

Punitive damages are very rare in Personal Injury cases. Punitive damages punish the negligent party from doing a similar act in the future.
