When you have been injured and/or your property has been damaged by someone else’s actions or negligence, you shouldn’t have to pay the price. If you have been injured in an accident, you may be legally entitled to seek compensation not only for the costs your injury incurred, but also for the pain and suffering you have endured. Few things are as upsetting as being in pain, having your finances ruined, and having your work and family negatively affected through no fault of your own. The skilled personal injury lawyers at Sessoms Law Office, LLC understand this, and are standing by to assist you through the confusing personal injury lawsuit process. Call our Atlanta office today at 678-853-7402.
What Kinds of Compensation Can I Ask for in My Personal Injury Case?
The kinds of damages that can be sought in most personal injury cases fall into four categories: medical expenses, lost wages, other expenses, and pain and suffering. We all know how expensive it can be to get medical treatment, especially in an emergency situation. If someone else caused your injuries, you can ask that they be held liable for those expenses. You can also seek compensation for the money you lost by being unable to work, and any other expenses that the accent caused you to have, such as necessary medical devices like crutches or a wheelchair, or the costs of transportation to medical appointments when you couldn’t drive yourself. Finally, although money won’t always bring you back to health, it can ease the pain and suffering you have endured, and you may ask for compensation for that pain and suffering.
How Do I Determine How Much I Should Ask for in Pain and Suffering Compensation?
Determining how much compensation to ask for in your personal injury case is simple for things like medical bills and lost wages. These are easily proven with documents you already have in your possession like receipts and paystubs. Assigning a dollar amount to your pain and suffering, however, can be much more complicated. The help of a skilled personal injury attorney in figuring out pain and suffering damages can be crucial. Experience and education combined will allow your personal injury attorney from Sessoms Law, LLC to study your case and determine a number to ask for to fairly compensate you for the pain and suffering your accident caused.
