How Is the Value of a Personal Injury Claim Determined?

May 7, 2020 in

When determining the value of a personal injury claim, there are a variety of factors that must be considered, and each case is unique. To ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries, as well as past and future pain and suffering. The negligence of another party should be brought to light in all cases, and you should be compensated to the fullest extent. Here, the personal injury attorneys at Sullivan Papain Block McManus Coffinas & Cannavo P.C. discuss how personal injury claims are determined, and steps to take to ensure that you are compensated for your injuries. 


What Are You Entitled to From Filing a Personal Injury Claim?  

When evaluating what is included in a personal injury claim, it is important to note that it does not just focus on the current state of your injuries. Hardships before the trial, as well as future pain and suffering, are all taken into consideration when establishing a personal injury claim. The defendant whom we have shown to be responsible for injuring you is required to pay a sum of money that will justly and fairly compensate you for all losses resulting from the injuries and disabilities you sustained. You are entitled to recover a sum of money which will justly and fairly compensate you for any past, present and future injury, disability and conscious pain and suffering caused by the defendant’s negligence.


In addition to the physical loss suffered from your injuries, the personal injury evaluation also includes emotional loss. Generally referred to as loss of enjoyment of life, this compensation involves the loss of your ability to participate in any activities which brought joy to your life before the injury, such as recreational activities, social outings or volunteer opportunities. Finally, you are entitled to compensation for economic loss as a result of your injuries. Economic loss not only includes loss of past and future wages, but may also include job benefits and money that would have otherwise been gained by job advancement, as well as the deprivation of other job opportunities. 


How SPBMCC Maximizes Personal Injury Compensation for Clients

Because there is no specific formula in determining how much emotional damage or future suffering these injuries caused, it is vital to seek professional counsel from a law firm that has the experience, dedication and persistence to get you the compensation you deserve, such as the personal injury attorneys at SPBMCC. We use the statements and testimony of our clients concerning the pain, disability and suffering they have endured, as well as the observations of family, friends and associates to show the extent of pain. At SPBMCC, we have the resources to investigate and obtain files that may help your case, such as pain scales, x-rays and photographs of operative procedures recorded in hospital and medical records. In addition to medical results, we present testimony from other relevant individuals such as economists, life care planners and employers to show the emotional and financial pain and suffering that may ensue in the future as a result of your injuries.
