How Much Compensation Can I Receive?

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may know that you are entitled to damages from the other party or their insurance company. However, as you face mounting medical bills and other financial hardships if you cannot work, your biggest question may be: how much injury compensation can I receive? Will it be enough to cover my needs?

At Suisman Shapiro Attorneys-at-Law, we have been fighting for compensation on behalf of our clients for decades. We will bring that experience to your case, offering you our knowledge to give you the peace of mind you need while recovering.

There Are Many Considerations In Determining Damage Amounts

When insurance companies are looking at a situation to decide the amount they will offer in damages, they will take multiple elements into account, including:

  • Medical care and expenses
  • Lost income
  • Whether your job will be affected in the long term (permanent physical disability)
  • Pain, suffering and emotional damages

Insurance Companies Are Not Always Looking Out For Your Best Interests

Insurance companies will use their findings to come to an initial offer, and will present a number to you. However, in many cases, this might not be the only offer they may ultimately give. As seasoned personal injury lawyers, we have seen time and again that it is important to have a skilled attorney on your side so that you do not accept an offer when you could probably negotiate a much higher amount.
