If you suffered a life-changing injury because of someone’s negligence a personal injury attorney can help you get the compensation you need and deserve. You may wonder what is my case worth? Well, every accident claim must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The circumstances of the accident, your injuries, and the extent to which your life is impacted are all considerations and factor into determining damages. While no amount of money can make up for the emotional and physical trauma, it can help you pay for the expenses and losses you incurred because of the injury.
Without a thorough review of your specific case we will not provide a rough ball park figure. In fact, we caution you to be careful if you’re dealing with someone who provides a number off the cuff. However, we offer free consultations to anyone in the Omaha area. Together we can explore what your case is worth.
Factors to Consider
There are many factors that must be considered in the valuation of your personal injury case, including:
- The extent of your injuries
- Medical costs
- Hospital stays
- Past and future surgeries
- Scarring or permanent injury
- Future medical costs
- Inability to work
- Who was at fault
- Available evidence of the accident
Types of Damages
There are different types of damages (financial compensation) you may be entitled to based on the specifics of your case. The most common damages sought in personal injury cases include lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, costs to repair damages to property, loss of use of property, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of society and companionship, and loss of consortium. Each case requires an analysis of the damages that may be available and what the amount of those damages are.
