How Much Is My Car Wreck Case Worth?
When we meet with victims injured in car accidents, we tend to hear a lot of the same types of questions. What are my rights? Am I able to file a personal injury claim? Who can be held liable? While we’re able to provide some insight to clients regarding these questions, there is one common question we hear that’s a bit more difficult to answer: How much is my case worth?
At The Park Law Firm, we work with many clients who were harmed in preventable car wrecks. As victims injured by the negligence of others, our clients have the right to pursue financial compensation for the damages they suffer. Because every case is unique and every accident and individual is different, however, it’s difficult to say how much any individual case may be worth.
To help our clients understand what they can expect when it comes to compensation, we often discuss what injured victims are entitled to after they have been involved in accidents, including economic and non-economic damages.
Victims are entitled to recover economic damages that result from their accidents. These are a lot of the damages you would expect to recover, and can include medical bills, the costs of future medical care, property damage, lost income caused by missed work, lost future earnings, and more.
In addition to recovering compensation for economic damages, victims also have the right to be compensated for damages that don’t necessarily equate to a monetary sum. Non-economic damages may include pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of quality of life, and the emotional injuries suffered by victims’ loved ones, among other damages.
In addition to economic and non-economic damages, some victims may have the opportunity to obtain compensation through punitive damages. Punitive damages are an additional avenue for compensation, but they are only awarded in cases where at-fault parties are egregiously negligent.
Attorney Sean Park has dedicated his career to helping injured victims rebuild their lives and recover the compensation they deserve after being injured by others.
