- Current medical expenses
- Future medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Lost work wages
- Lost benefits
- Lost pension
- Lost sales and bonuses
Non-economic damages refer to the pain and suffering that plaintiffs suffer. Clients often ensure substantial physical and mental anguish. We can help you calculate a sum that represents fair compensation. Knowing this sum is important. We would not want to enter into negotiations without having a fact-based understanding of a what a client deserves.
Negotiation vs Litigation
Most personal injury matters are resolved through a litigation process. We meet with the at-fault party’s attorneys, insurance company and its attorneys. They may attempt to minimize our client’s sufferings. We rely on our knowledge of the case and evidence to encourage them to make a fair offer. If they make a settlement offer that is acceptable to the client, the case is closed.
