In order to maximize the compensation you can receive, you'll want to speak with a Clarksburg personal injury attorney about the damages available for you to seek. There are general types of compensation considered during the claims process.
Common types of compensation that may be awarded in a West Virginia personal injury claim include:
- medical costs (including future costs);
- lost income (including future income);
- rehabilitation costs; and
- pain and suffering.
Compensation in a West Virginia personal injury claim is generally divided into economic and non-economic damages. The economic damages will take into consideration your lost wages, medical bills and other expenses that you can prove through bills and receipts. Non-economic damages consider factors such as pain and suffering that do not have a specific monetary value.
Your Clarksburg personal injury attorney will look at the specifics of your case to determine a fair compensation amount. This includes looking at the evidence surrounding your accident and the extent of your injuries. While a Clarksburg personal injury attorney will strive to have your present expenses compensated through your claim, they'll also include future financial needs related to your injuries.
