The impact of an injury can be long-lasting and take a toll on your family and loved-ones, as well as yourself. Some issues are obvious, others are less visible. When you have physical, financial or emotional cost when sustaining any injury, you should be compensated.
When we meet to discuss your case, we will look at the following to determine the best strategy to achieve your highest financial compensation:
- Pain and Suffering
The physical and emotional stress caused by your injury, such as disability, inconvenience, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of expectation of life.
- Loss of Income
Income lost as a result of your injury, including wages, pension benefits, disability benefits, and access to medical and dental benefits.
- Future Loss of Earning Capacity
If you are unable to return to work or you have lost the opportunity to earn income in the future, you may be compensated for income lost to the age of retirement.
- Cost of care
The costs associated with professional care for your physical and mental health after an injury.
- “In Trust” Claims
Family members are entitled to reasonable compensation for services they provide to an injured relative. While these services are often provided out of love and affection, not out of any desire for compensation, the law recognizes that these services have significant value in improving the mental and physical well-being of the injured family member.
