What Is My Palm Desert Injury Worth?
Many people wish to know what they might receive from a brain or spinal cord injury settlement. Though this is a valid question, it’s unfortunately difficult to answer. This is because the worth of your case ultimately depends upon the circumstances of your situation. The more severe the damage, for example, the more you can expect to receive. It’s difficult to give a blanket statement about what you may get when your case closes.
Despite the ambiguity of the situation, certain factors will likely be accounted for in your settlement. They include:
- Lost income, both past and future
- Medical bills, both past and future
- Long term care requirements
- Lost earning ability
- Pain and suffering
If your injury requires surgery, a long recovery, and is permanently debilitating, you will likely get a larger settlement. If your medical bills are small and you make a full recovery, you will likely receive less.
To maximize your settlement, it’s important to keep copies of all documents involved in your injury. Request copies of your doctor’s notes and save them with all receipts and photos that go with the incident. This information will be useful when building your case and proving to the court that the injury occurred and affected your life.
