A professional attorney will work on your behalf to make sure you are compensated for every single loss you have suffered as a direct result of the accident.
An insurance company is also more likely to take the victim’s claim seriously when they are approached by a legal team, because they know that a lawyer knows what they are doing.

What are damages in a personal injury case?
Damages are the monetary compensation for the injuries and emotional stress that an at-fault party inflicted on a victim. If it’s been proven that an individual, organization or business was careless or negligent, and it resulted in a physical or emotional personal injury, the victim could be eligible for monetary compensation.
What types of damages are there?
There are three types of damages that are typically calculated in personal injury cases:
Special Damages – losses that can be objectively assessed and then compensated to the victim. Special are defined as tangible losses, such as loss of wages, nursing care expenses and medical bills.
General Damages or “pain and suffering”. This type of damages compensate the victim for non-monetary losses or injuries they’ve experienced, such as pain, anxiety, mental health issues like PTSD, and so on.
Punitive damages are legal recompense that the at-fault party is ordered to pay in addition to other damages. They are put in place by a judge not to compensate the victims but to punish the defendants for grossly negligent or intentional conduct.
