When you or someone that you love is injured in an accident, it can throw your life into chaos. The long road to a physical recovery can be difficult to travel, and it's even more difficult when you're shouldering a large financial burden as a result of the accident as well. To make it worse, many victims of an accident are forced into this financial hardship by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else. Our attorneys fight for the injured, not the powerful insurance companies that defend those who caused your accident.
Can You Seek Compensation?
Those injured in an accident can seek financial compensation through an Englewood personal injury lawsuit if they can show that the other party acted in a way any reasonable person would recognize to be reckless or negligent and that those actions led to the accident. This can include a wide range of different things including:
- Drunk driving
- Texting while driving
- Violation of traffic laws
- Failure to maintain a safe property
- And more
No two cases are the same, but the fact is that if your accident was caused by someone else's negligence, you could receive financial compensation and get your life back on track.
What Can You Be Awarded?
Damages in a personal injury settlement or court-ordered damages will vary greatly from case to case. However, a few key points stand out as being the foundation on which a fair settlement amount will be determined. These include the following.
- Lost wages due to missing work
- Future potential lost wages
- Medical bills
- Future potential medical bills
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
These may not all apply to your case, but they'll help your attorney form a solid idea of just what you're owed and help ensure that if a settlement is negotiated, that it's fair. We will always fight to get you the most from your case, and never charge you a dime until we win your case.
