How much compensation will I get?

If you are seriously injured, the consequences can extend beyond physical pain.

You might experience significant financial loss due to necessary medical services provided, an extended hospital stay, or perhaps long-term treatment costs.

In addition, your injury might also prevent you from working during the recovery process and from pursuing the type of employment you had before the accident.

It doesn’t matter if the injury resulted from a car accident, a slip and fall injury, or a boating accident, the financial compensation is based on the damages suffered by the victim. These damages can be both physical and mental.

A damage award is often established after negotiation between the parties involved and their attorneys.

Damages are paid by the liable party or their insurance companies. If all negotiation attempts fail after an allotted time period, then the case will go to trial.
