What Kind Of Compensation Can I Expect?
Car accidents rarely let the victims off easy. You could be hurt in any number of ways, from catastrophic injuries to minor cuts and bruises. In all instances however, there is pain and suffering involved – physically, emotionally and mentally. Therefore, financial awards can range from the thousands to the hundreds of millions, depending on the kind of injuries you suffered. Damages will generally fall into three distinct categories: economic, non-economic and punitive. Or more specifically:
- Property damage (car, mobile home, tractor trailer, etc)
- Medical bills
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of loved one, love of life or caretaker
Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are awarded when the judge views the negligence to be particularly heinous. This is entirely at the discretion of the courts and generally applied in the most extreme circumstances.
What Should I Do Now?
As said earlier, if you have considered filing a lawsuit and are unsure of what case you may have, call Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. for more information. The call and the consultation are both free. Our knowledgeable attorneys will help you determine exactly what kind of options you have available and the kind of compensation you can look forward to.
However, you do not want to delay. The state of Washington holds a statute of limitations in place for all lawsuits. After a certain period of time, you will be unable to collect on any damages that you or your family may have suffered in an accident. So, it is in your best interest to call at your earliest convenience.
