Do I Need to Contact a Lawyer to Recover Damages After a Serious Injury?

You might be able to settle a liability claim after a minor accident on your own, especially if there is no significant damage or other major losses. However, if there is any dispute about fault, or the facts of the case are complex, you might need the assistance of a lawyer. Discussing your case with an attorney cannot hurt your chances of winning a payout, even if you decide to handle your claim on your own.

Cases involving severe injuries or permanent injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, are often difficult for victims to navigate, especially while they are recovering. If you or a seriously injured family member  are seeking compensation, call us as soon as possible.

What Compensation Could I Recover for My Injuries?

When people think of the damages recoverable after a personal injury incident, they often think only of the medical bills and treatment-related expenses. However, you may have many other expenses and losses related to the accident and your injuries.

The damages recoverable in a successful personal injury claim or lawsuit include:

  • Medical treatment costs;
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity if you can no longer work;
  • The expense of replacing broken or damaged personal property;
  • The repair or replacement of your car, if applicable;
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident and injuries;
  • Wrongful death compensation, if your loved one died from their injuries; and
  • Pain and suffering damages.

Even Minor Injuries Could Qualify for Significant Compensation

It is possible that you suffered significant damages in your accident, even if the incident only caused minor injuries. We will fully investigate your accident.

For example, imagine you broke your arm in a car accident. The cost of a taking an ambulance to the hospital, getting x-rays, and receiving a cast are relatively low as far as injuries could go. But consider:

  • You missed six weeks of work because you cannot lift heavy boxes while your arm heals;
  • Your iPhone broke in the crash, and you need to replace it;
  • Your vehicle requires significant repairs; and
  • You need a rental car while yours is in the shop.

All of your accident-related expenses and losses can add up to much more than you may realize. While a serious injury accident claim will likely include more medical costs and pain and suffering damages, you might still be able to recover a significant payout, even if you only suffered minor injuries.
