How to Calculate a Personal Injury Settlement
When you’re hurt in a New York City accident, you need compensation that meets your needs following the injury. Unfortunately, it’s easy to end up with less than what you’re owed. If you accept a low settlement offer, you may be stuck recovering without the compensation you’re due.
But you have options for getting your maximum compensation. Your lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help you calculate a personal injury settlement that meets all your needs.
Adding Up Your Financial Costs
After a serious injury, your finances may be impacted first. You may already know the bills are piling up, and you may be unable to work during this time. That means more debt for you that should be included in your settlement.
Your economic damages, or the financial losses you’ve suffered because of a New York City accident, should be totaled up and included in your lawsuit. These economic damages may also include things like property damage, future medical care, and lost earning capacity.
Pain and Suffering Damages
Seeking compensation for the economic damages you suffered is vital because they include your bills. But what about the intangible damages you’ve suffered, which may not have a financial value like your expenses? Losses like pain and suffering or emotional distress are still a vital part of your potential compensation.
But these damages aren’t always easy to calculate. For example, how do you put a price tag on the impact of disfigurement? Because it can be difficult to total up these damages, you may need a NYC injury lawyer to calculate your claim’s worth.
