How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?, Hartford, Connecticut

No two personal injury claims are the same, and there is no way to determine what kind of settlement you could secure without speaking with an attorney first. If you were hurt in an accident caused by someone else, a lawyer from Weingast Law in Hartford, CT, will assess your case and help you calculate a fair compensation amount, including all applicable damages.

What Kinds of Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Case?

Medical Bills

Even with health care insurance, medical bills can add up quickly. From co-pays to prescription costs, you can include all costs associated with treating your injuries in the settlement amount. Your attorney will also help you calculate the cost of future medical needs stemming from the accident.

Lost Income

If you have to miss work to recover or you’re unable to return to your position at all, you can recover lost wages and loss of earning capacity. Make sure you track all doctor’s appointments requiring you to take off from work because then, you can recover your sick time as well. 

Mental Anguish

Although it’s hard to quantify mental anguish, there are formulas in place to help the court do this. Following an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, and loss of consortium.

Property Losspersonal injury

If the accident caused severe injuries, it most likely caused extensive property damage as well. If your vehicle or personal property was damaged in the collision, you can expect to get reimbursed for the cost of the repairs or your car’s fair market value.

If you sustained debilitating injuries in a collision and you want to file a personal injury lawsuit, contact Weingast Law by calling (860) 233-1440. The skilled legal team will prevent you from accepting a settlement that is anything less than fair.
