Calculating Damages After an Auto Accident
Our attorneys will work to help you recover compensation for the damages you may have suffered during your accident, such as:
- Medical bills
Getting the best medical care possible is the most important part of your recovery process, but it can be expensive. Everything from ambulance rides and overnight stays at the hospital, to prescription medications and surgeries can quickly add up. Our legal team knows that your medical bills don’t end after you get released from the hospital, and that’s why we’ll work to determine and include your future medical costs as we build your claim.
- Lost wages
You count on your paychecks to provide for your family, but a serious car accident injury can leave you unable to work for weeks, months, or even years. And when you’re not working, you’re not earning the money that your loved ones depend on. We’ll consult your medical records to find out how long you’ll be out of work. Then, we’ll include that information when we submit your claim to the insurance company.
- Pain and suffering
Chronic pain and disability can significantly impair your ability to do the things you love. And if your pain is severe, you may be in constant distress and even suffering from debilitating psychological symptoms like anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. We believe that victims should be compensated for their pain and suffering, and we’ll make sure the insurance company knows how the accident has affected you.
- Loss of consortium
Your relationship with your spouse or partner is a special bond. However, your accident may have changed the relationship due to injuries, disabilities, and emotional and psychological changes. And as a surviving spouse, partner, or family member, you also may suffer if your loved one died in the accident. Our legal team will make sure your loss of consortium is represented in your claim for compensation.
The insurance company’s initial settlement offer may not cover the full costs of your accident. Before you accept a settlement or sign any insurance company paperwork, contact Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin. Our attorneys are ready to fight for the full amount of compensation you deserve.
