If you’re unsure if you have a strong injury case, it’s in your best interest to seek legal guidance. In some cases, people don’t file a claim because they are unsure if they have a case, causing them to miss their chance of possibly receiving compensation.
What Can A Settlement Cover?
A settlement or compensation amount is intended to cover the injuries and losses you’ve endured. In order to determine how much you should be awarded, multiple factors are taken into account such as the extent of your injuries, how long your recovery will take, and the treatments needed for your injuries.
Compensation can include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Loss of earning capacity
- Mental anguish
If you or a loved one suffered injuries from an accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. Although compensation may not repair the damage that resulted from the accident, it can alleviate some of the stress and financial burden you have endured. We believe you should be able to return to your life as quickly as possible and look forward to your future despite what you have experienced.
What Are Residual Or Permanent Injuries?
A residual injury is one that has left permanent effects or done long-lasting damage, which can immensely impact the compensation you may receive. These types of injuries can include scarring, back injuries, and numerous other impairments. When you contact our law firm, we can review the extent of your injuries to see what options you may have.
If you have suffered a permanent injury, it’s vital the injury is documented in your medical records. Medical records are an imperative part of an injury claim and help determine the amount you should receive for your injuries. Additionally, it is important that the individual or company you are seeking compensation from is aware of the impact your injuries have had on your life.
If I Have Surgery, Will It Increase My Award?
In some cases, having surgery can increase your personal injury settlement amount. Although surgery can lead to a higher settlement, it should not be your main reason for undergoing any medical operation.
If surgery is necessary for your recovery, then you should have the procedure. If not, it’s better to be honest and not play the insurance system. In any surgery, you take risks such as infections, scarring, more damage, and in some cases, death. This is another reason you shouldn’t solely base your decision to have surgery around receiving higher compensation.
It’s important to allow one of our attorneys to review the details of your case to see what options may be available. In some instances, surgery can increase your settlement amount, while in others, it will not. Compensation for surgery is dependent on the circumstances of your individual case.
