Hurt In An Accident in Athens?

No one expects an accident to happen. When they do you may find yourself unable to work with stacking medical bills and expenses. This can be mentally exhausting and stressful, not to mention the physical pain you are experiencing.

Accidents can have serious effects, ranging from physical injuries to mental and emotional distress. Accidents can cause significant financial strain from medical bills, lost wages, and more. An insurance adjuster will often make a settlement offer before you have even recovered, often well below what would be fair compensation.

What Can I Be Compensated For In A Personal Injury Case? 

Every accident is different, and so are the types of damages and amounts of compensation. An attorney can help in calculating these damages to provide an amount of fair compensation.

Here are some of the damages you can be compensated for:

  • Property Loss: The expense of repairing or replacing any personal property damaged in the accident, is known as property damage.
  • Medical Expenses: Any medical costs incurred as a result of the accident may be covered. The ambulance travel, hospital costs, doctor’s appointments, medication, surgeries, and any other medical care expenses incurred as a result of the accident are included in your medical expenses.

  • Lost Wages and Earning Capacity: If your injuries keep you from being able to work, your time off can be compensated. This can also include the time that was used for doctor’s appointments, rehabilitation appointments, or an appointment that caused you to miss work due to your injury. This form of compensation not only includes the lost wages from the accident currently but also considers whether you may lose your earning potential in the future. In other words, if your injuries are severe enough that you are unable to continue working, you may be allowed to include this in your claim.
  • Pain and Suffering: The pain and mental anguish caused by the accident. Pain and suffering deserve to be compensated. Calculating how much financial compensation is appropriate is the hardest part. Although quantifying pain and suffering might be tough, an experienced accident attorney is up to the challenge. Every victim of an accident is entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering.
  • Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are additional compensation that can be added to the settlement. In this type of case, the party at fault may be financially punished if their actions warrant a harsher penalty than the accident damage compensation. A drunk driver causing an accident would be an example of adding punitive damages. The actions of the driver having a high blood alcohol level are considered gross negligence. Drunk driving can add on punitive damages to the compensation.
  • Loss of Enjoyment: If the accident caused the victim to be unable to continue to do things they once loved, they could ask for compensation for loss of enjoyment or quality of life. For example, if the victim was an avid runner, but the accident caused them to be disabled and no longer run, they could claim loss of enjoyment.
  • Loss of Consortium: Whereas loss of enjoyment is for the injured victim, loss of consortium is for the victim’s loved ones. If the accident is fatal or leaves the victim unable to fulfill marital obligations, the spouse or immediate family members can sue for loss of consortium.
  • Wrongful Death: In fatal accidents, the victim’s family may file a wrongful death lawsuit against all responsible parties. This would cover additional forms of compensation such as funeral expenses, loss of the deceased’s income, future earnings, and pension plan. It can also include loss of inheritance, medical insurance coverage, among other possibilities.

No, you do not have to hire an attorney to make a personal injury claim. But, doing so, you may end up with the insurance company offering you a compensation amount well below what you could get with the help of an attorney.

Dealing with injuries from an accident can be difficult. The healing process can be slow and complex, and the accident can cause an emotional toll on the victim. If the victim is the breadwinner, it can also be a financial burden.

Choosing to fight your personal injury lawsuit on your own is one more hardship to bear. With an experienced injury lawyer on your side, you can focus on healing physically, emotionally, and financially while they focus on fighting for the best possible compensation award.

Personal injury Law Firms offer free consultations, so there is no risk to call for a case evaluation!

Not necessarily. Most personal injury cases don’t go to trial if they are able to reach a fair settlement before the trial begins. However, if there’s a contested legal issue, it may go to trial. It is important to choose an experienced trial lawyer that is willing to take the case in front of a jury trial if they believe the at-fault insurance company is not offering you fair compensation.

It depends on the case. Typically, a personal injury lawsuit can be settled in from a couple of weeks to even months and occasionally even longer. Overall, it’s best for the victim to seek legal consultation as soon as possible to avoid any delays with their settlement.

Athens Personal Injury Lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no upfront fees and no out-of-pocket costs. When your attorney gets a settlement for you, they charge a percentage for their attorney fees.

Working on a contingency basis means you don’t pay a thing out of pocket. Payment only is taken from the accident settlement paid by the liable party. You have nothing to lose by calling for a free consultation for your personal injury claim.
