A serious car accident can oftentimes lead to many weeks of recovery – if not longer. When hiring a Boston personal injury attorney, it is important to find somebody who will be aggressive in pursuing the financial compensation you deserve. This will help ensure that you receive any medical and/or employment benefits as soon as possible.
What Costs Go into the Value of a Personal Injury Case?
The cost of an injury is evaluated based on a variety of factors including lost wages, future medical treatment, and the need for rehabilitation. Along with physical injuries, you may also be able to receive compensation for emotional pain and suffering, as well as reduced quality of life or diminished earning capacity.
While evaluating the cost of an injury is important, it is not often something that an attorney can do on his or her own. Instead, getting help from a medical expert and economist is often times necessary. By calling on expert witnesses and considering the many ways in which the injury has, and will, affect your life, we can come to an inclusive value that will appropriately cover your damages. We work with a variety of professionals to ensure our calculations are accurate.
Common Types of Injuries
The type of injury, or injuries, sustained can also affect the cost of the recovery. These are a few of the most common types of injuries that we deal with:
- Broken bones: Broken bones may require a few medical visits, as well as recovery once the cast is removed.
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI): TBIs often require both immediate and ongoing medical care. The patient may also need home health care aides to assist with daily tasks.
- Deep lacerations and scarring: Deep cuts and permanent scarring may require immediate medical care and ongoing surgeries to repair the skin. Depending on the extent of the scarring, we may also be able to negotiate cosmetic surgery too.
- Neck and back injuries: Neck and back injuries can be difficult to treat. They also often require rehabilitation and can prevent someone from returning to work again.
In addition to the type of injury, the severity of the injury also affects the medical care needed, as well as the costs involved. It also affects your ability to return to work or how fast until recovery. This is why it is so important to work with an experienced lawyer who can carefully consider the ways in which your accident has impacted your life.
