Types of Damages You May Be Able to Recover
After an accident, compensation from a personal injury case can help you pay for your medical bills, the cost of repairs to your damaged property, and more. Generally, there are two types of compensation you can pursue depending on the circumstances of your accident:
When you see a doctor for your injury or take your vehicle to the repair shop, the bills from these services are considered economic damages. You may be able to seek compensation in the form of economic damages for any costs that have burdened you as a result of your accident.
This can include but is not limited to:
- Property repairs or the totaled value
- Costs associated with canceled plans, like events or vacations
- Past and future lost wages
- Past and future medical bills
If your accident caused you emotional trauma, you may also be entitled to noneconomic damages. Serious injuries often have a detrimental impact on the victim’s daily life, preventing them from enjoying the activities they were previously able to enjoy.
Noneconomic damages can be some of the greatest losses after an accident but are often tricky to put a price on due to their lack of an inherent dollar amount. They can include:
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Our personal injury attorneys can help you calculate the economic and/or noneconomic damages you may be entitled to and fight for every penny you deserve.
Insurance Companies Aren’t Your Friend
The responsibility of determining fault for your accident and distributing compensation, ultimately, falls on an insurance adjuster. It’s important to always remember who this adjuster is working for: the insurance company. Their job is to protect the company’s best interests, not yours.
This means the adjuster will likely try to persuade you to settle for less than what you deserve in an attempt to save their company money. Adjusters have even been known to strongarm injured victims and use unfair tactics to bully them into settling for unfair compensation.
At McMahan Law Firm, we work for YOU. We’re familiar with the maneuvers of insurance adjusters intended to exploit injured individuals. We will fight to ensure you are not taken advantage of.
Oftentimes, an insurance agency will be more likely to offer a fair settlement if they are threatened with legal action. Our attorneys will show them you mean business and aren’t afraid to take your case to court to get the full settlement you deserve.
What Can an Attorney Do for You?
In the event you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, a personal injury lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve and need to move forward. The Insiders will review your case and, if you have sufficient grounds, see it through from beginning to end.
We will field any calls you receive from insurance adjusters and help you gather all the information you need for the strongest case possible. If the insurance company is still reluctant to give you a fair settlement, we will take your case to court. Here, we will defend your rights to the full extent of our power and do everything we can to see that you get what you deserve.
How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Cost?
All the bills after an accident can be incredibly overwhelming, so many people, understandably, wonder how much it will cost to hire an attorney. At McMahan Law Firm, we work on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t owe us a penny unless we win for you. This allows you to retain quality legal services without having to worry about how much it will cost you. If we are unable to win your case, we don’t get paid.
