Palm Beach Gardens Personal Injury Lawyer
After getting hurt due to someone else’s recklessness or poor judgment, you can hold them responsible and get financially compensated in the process. Find out how by speaking with an attorney.
If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident of some sort, you’re probably already well-acquainted with all of the medical bills, lost income, and other damages that follow in the aftermath. What you might not be expecting, however, is how difficult it can be to get fairly compensated for your damages and losses.
Whether you need to seek a settlement from a business, an insurance company, a government entity, or an individual, it can be incredibly difficult to get them to admit liability and pay out what you deserve. A Palm Beach Gardens personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo can help you build a case that proves who was at fault and get you the comprehensive settlement you deserve.
Almost Any Accident Could Qualify for a Personal Injury Scenario
While traffic accidents are easily the most common source of serious injuries and personal injury claims, the truth is that nearly any injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence could make you legally eligible to seek compensation. Your lawyer will help you investigate what happened to you and identify everyone who owes you compensation:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents – From car crashes to motorcycle collisions to wrecks with commercial trucks, a number of different parties could be at fault, including drivers, parts manufacturers, and government entities responsible for road maintenance.
- Medical Malpractice – Whether it was a doctor, a dentist, or some other licensed healthcare provider, if negligent medical care left you injured, you could have grounds for a case.
- Premises Liability Incidents – Anytime a property hazard causes you to be injured, including dangerous dogs and slick or uneven surfaces, you might be able to hold the property owner financially liable.
- Defective Products – When you get injured while using a product as intended, the item’s manufacturer or designer owes you more than just an explanation.
Compensation for a Catastrophic Injury
You should expect your settlement to cover more than just your obvious medical bills and current expenses. A full settlement will account for the non-economic damages in addition to the financial ones, as well as your future losses.
Financial damages are anything that correlates to a definite monetary value and are usually backed with receipts, bills, invoices, or something similar. These include medical expenses, lost income, transportation expenses, property damage, and anything else with a dollar amount attached to it that was incurred by your injury or accident.
Non-economic damages, however, are quite a bit less obvious. In essence, these damages reflect how the quality of your life has diminished because of what you’ve been through. A few examples include pain and suffering, lost companionship, emotional distress, permanent disfigurement, and lost enjoyment of life.
