Understanding and Establishing Your Auto Accident Case
The recovery process begins with hiring an experienced auto accident or injury attorney to go over the details of the case. The plaintiff’s legal representation must then prove that a breach of duty took place and that this resulted in the plaintiff coming to physical or emotional harm.
Recovering Compensation in Injury Lawsuits
After establishing liability, the civil court system will aim to reconstruct the outcome of the events had the accident not occurred. Damages including financial loss in addition to pain and suffering (and occasionally punitive damages) are then calculated in relation to the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages or loss of consortium
- Emotional/physical pain and suffering
- Disability and disfigurement
- Additional costs resulting from the injury
