Your injury is one that you’ll have to live with for the rest of your life, all because another person made a mistake. You forgave what they did, but you still feel like you are owed something for what you now have to deal with.
You’re right, and you should seek a personal injury claim against whoever it was that hurt you. If their reckless actions or negligence led to your injury, then it’s important for them to be held accountable. Even if you don’t hold a grudge, the reality is that you will have expenses that are related to your injuries. You might miss work or no longer be able to do the things you love. With that in mind, it’s a smart move to seek fair compensation so you can, at least, have the financial support you need as you recover.
How much is your personal injury claim worth?
It’s impossible to say without looking at all the factors that are affecting your case. Things like your work history might affect how much you’ll be paid for the time spent off the job, and your own medical needs along with the severity of your injury will be used to determine how much financial support you’re really going to need. If there’s no chance of recovery, then your claim may have a higher value than if this is going to be a temporary condition.
Your attorney will work with you to put together a strong claim so you can receive fair settlement offers or take the case to trial for a judge to decide on the award.
