What Kind Of Personal Injury Compensation Will I Receive?
Seeking Full Compensation For Your Losses And Suffering
Under our system of justice, the victim of a harmful act (either negligent or intentional) can sue for damages. Economic losses are those that can be objectively calculated, and can consist of actual out-of-pocket losses or future losses reasonably certain to occur. Non-economic losses such as those for pain and suffering are determined during settlement negotiations, in mediation, through arbitration or by the decision of a jury.
At Clark, Perdue & List, we provide results-oriented representation for victims of negligence. We seek full compensation for every client from all possible sources. When you choose our law firm, our lawyers will work diligently to obtain the best possible result for you.
Compensation In A Personal Injury Or Wrongful Death Case
Some of the types of compensation that an accident victim may be able to obtain include the following:
Medical costs — This can include the costs of emergency care, follow-up care with a physician, reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery, medications, physical therapy or chiropractic treatment, psychological counseling, travel costs to and from medical providers, and other costs.
Lost income — This can include past actual income loss, as well as future income you will not earn as a result of the accident. We sometimes use the services of an economist or actuarial specialists to determine this figure.
Pain and suffering — This can include compensation for physical pain and psychological suffering.
Punitive damages — In some cases involving egregious negligence, it may be possible to obtain punitive damages intended to punish the negligent party and deter wrongdoing.
In a wrongful death case, compensable losses can include economic loses, such as medical and funeral expenses and loss of financial support, plus loss of consortium, loss of companionship and other non-economic losses such as loss of care, advice, guidance and counsel.
No Fee, No Recovery
Clark, Perdue & List accepts personal injury and wrongful death cases on contingency. You will owe an attorney fee only if we win compensation for you.
