In personal injury cases, a person injured by the negligence or fault of another person or company has a right to collect compensation for their injury to make them whole again. While monetary settlements cannot take away the pain caused by an accident or make up for the lives changed by an injury, the law provides that the amount of compensation awarded must equal the amount of harm caused by the negligent act. Ultimately, the value of the harm caused by the negligence of the other person in an accident may be determined by a jury. Most cases settlement before going to a jury with both sides attempting to forecast what a jury would award if the case were to proceed to trial. Both sides are able to save the cost and risk of trial by entering into a settlement. However, if a fair settlement is not offered by the insurance company, the injured party may need to proceed to trial to get a fair outcome. Our seasoned trial lawyers take cases to trial when the offer made by the insurance company is inadequate and have the skill and resources necessary to obtain justice for you.
Compensation in personal injury cases may include damages for medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other damages that will depend on the specific facts of your case.
