How much is my personal injury claim worth?

A lawyer from our San Antonio law firm can get you compensation

If you were injured in an accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for your damages. If you are in this situation, you probably have a question we often hear at the Herrera Law Firm:

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

After all, you may have piles of medical bills and might not be able to work due to your accident. All of these financial losses are referred to as “damages” by personal injury lawyers. Damages refer to losses you have suffered financially, physically, and emotionally as a result of your accident.

Let’s say you were hurt in a rear-end car accident in San Antonio and want to know how much financial compensation you may be entitled to. Without knowing the specifics of your case, it’s difficult to come up with an exact number. Your best option is to contact a personal injury lawyer from our San Antonio law firm and provide some details during a free consultation.

Generally speaking, our legal team would pursue compensation from the person or company responsible for your accident. We would then likely consult with experts who can provide unique insights into your case. We may also track down witnesses and examine the scene of your accident to build a strong case that produces positive results.

Types of compensation in a personal injury lawsuit

The following are some of the damages (financial compensation) that are commonly awarded in a personal injury lawsuit:

  • Medical expenses – You may be entitled to compensation for the cost of medical care and reimbursement for your treatment, including both past and future medical procedures related to your injuries from your accident.
  • Loss of wages – You may be unable to work, or you may have to reduce your hours after being injured in an accident. A personal injury attorney can help determine the full impact the accident has on your income and pursue compensation for that lost income. Additionally, your lawyer might help you pursue damages for the wages you would have been able to make in the future if your accident did not happen. This is referred to as “loss of earning capacity.”
  • Property loss – Whether it’s your vehicle, clothes, or other items damaged or destroyed due to your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for repair or replacement of the damaged property.
  • Pain and suffering – When you experience pain and suffering during and immediately after the accident.
  • Emotional distress – When you experience emotional problems such as fear, anxiety or sleep loss linked to the accident
  • Loss of enjoyment – When you can no longer enjoy hobbies and other day-to-day activities as a result of the accident.
  • Loss of consortium – This refers to the impact an accident has on your family.
  • Punitive damages – In some cases, the negligent individual or company’s behavior is particularly egregious or reckless and the victim is awarded damages meant to punish the at-fault individual or entity.

Depending on the extent of your injuries and the how much each one of these items adds up to, your case could be worth anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several million. You will never know unless you take the time to talk to our law firm about your accident.
