How Much is a Personal Injury Claim Worth?

After a serious injury, you may have a difficult time getting the compensation you need to recover. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by your injuries, not to mention the mental and emotional trauma of your accident. You need compensation, but you may not have the tools you need to recover.

Your Tampa personal injury attorney is here to help. Understanding the value of your claim is vital before you go to court in order to win the max compensation you're due. Talk to your lawyer about the following damages you may be eligible for. 

Economic Damages

Your economic damages are a compensation meant to cover all the financial costs associated with your incident. You may need a lawyer's help to add up all of these values, present and future.

First, you may be due compensation for the injuries you suffered. Those injuries may be severe—you may have suffered brain injuries, spinal cord damage, broken bones, and more. Lost wages can also be a pricey part of your claim. For example, if you're injured in a car accident, you may need compensation for your time away from work.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are a form of compensation awarded to cover the intangible losses you experience. 

These damages may include emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and other types of trauma. But these damages don't have a specific price tag to them. An experienced lawyer has the tool to quantify these intangible values.

For example, your emotional trauma may impact your life in more severe ways than others with similar injuries. Your lawyer can help you determine what your claim is worth.

Punitive Damages

When someone else harms you, you may find the at-fault party was especially reckless or intended to injure you. While punitive damages are rare, you may be due this compensation too.

But these damages aren't meant to compensate you. These damages are meant to punish the wrongdoer and deter them from repeating the acts.

Calculate Your Claim with a Lawyer

If you've been hurt in a serious accident, you need compensation that covers all the ways your life has been negatively impacted by the incident. But you may not have the tools you need to calculate those losses. Worse, you're hurt, and it's difficult to focus on your injuries and your claim. So what can you do about it?
