What damages are expected in personal injury claims?
In any personal injury case, there are two main types of damages that can be pursued:
1. Compensatory damages
As its name implies, compensatory damages seek to compensate for the injury or damage that occurred as a result of the accident or injury. In any case, the object is always to restore your life to what it once was, before the accident or incident. This may include compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, physical and/or property damage inflicted, and any medical expenses that may have arisen as a result of the incident.
2. Punitive damages
Punitive damages are monies awarded on top of compensatory damages and may be considered in certain special cases. Punitive damages are meant as “punishment” for the defendant, either to ensure that the situation never happens again, or if the incident was particularly careless or negligent in nature.
Can I afford to hire a personal injury lawyer?
While legal services can be quite costly, you may be eligible for a deference. This means that you will not pay unless we are able to secure a settlement for you. Upon the successful conclusion and payout of your matter, The Ferrell Maritime and Mesothelioma Law Group will collect a percentage of your settlement in compensation.
We will fight for you. Your consultation is free of obligation, and you owe it to yourself to explore the possibilities.
Some incidents carry with them a statute of limitations as to how long you can wait to file a claim. If your situation surpasses the statute, there may be little anybody can do for you. If you have been harmed, injured, or wrongfully maligned in any way, shape or form, you owe it to yourself to explore the possibilities.
If your injury has prevented you from living a happy, normal life in which you are able to work and support yourself and your family, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our legal team is made up of experienced, caring, empathetic professionals who want to see justice done.
