A serious injury causes pain, debt, and emotional trauma that can take years to overcome. If someone else caused your suffering, contact a Highlands County injury lawyer.
No one wants to deal with the frustration and pain that come with a serious accident. Unfortunately, an injury might have already happened to you, leaving you to pick up the costs for your hospital bills and other expenses.
It’s unfair, and worse, if you don’t file a lawsuit against the person, he or she could get away with this carelessness. If you were injured because someone else didn’t take care with your safety, you may need help from the attorneys at Lopez & Humphries, PA.
A Highlands County personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you get through your case when you’re struggling with the damages from your serious injury. Our attorneys are just a call or click away.
Examples of Personal Injuries
First, what counts as a personal injury? Generally, if you were injured because of another person’s negligence, you likely have a viable personal injury case on your hands. This can include malicious attempts to harm—while criminal charges might be brought against the attacker, you also deserve compensation when someone deliberately harms you. You can get that through a civil suit.
The following are some common types of claims our personal injury lawyers in Highlands County can help with:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents – A car, truck, or motorcycle crash can be a devastating accident. Personal injury claims for truck accidents, which often involve employer liability, can be particularly difficult to handle.
- Defective Products – When an appliance or other product malfunctions, it could lead to serious injuries like burns and broken bones. Our lawyers can help you investigate and identify the party responsible for your injuries.
- Premises Liability – When you’re on another person’s property, the property owner has a duty to reasonably protect you from serious injury. When he or she doesn’t do this, you could be seriously injured. You deserve compensation for that.
Compensation You Could Recover
Once you’ve determined your case type and who may be responsible, you’ll also need to determine what your case is worth. This can be especially difficult without a Highlands County injury attorney, who will have the tools and resources to help you calculate the value of your losses.
Usually, you’ll have two types of damages: economic and non-economic. The first type involves the damages that are likely the first you’ll think of, as they’re the financial losses you’ve suffered because of your accident. These include medical expenses, lost income, household services, and a loss of earning capacity.
Non-economic damages cover what we also call “pain and suffering” damages. These damages cover the emotional toll an accident might take on you, which includes mental anguish, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional trauma. You deserve compensation for every damage you’ve suffered at someone else’s hands.
