Injured in a Motor Vehicle Collision? Find Out What Compensation a Top Seattle Car Accident Lawyer Can Recover for You
Have you been injured in a motor vehicle collision? If you suffered serious injuries in an accident that was not your fault, you need a top Seattle car accident lawyer to recover compensation for you. Common causes of car accidents include distracted drivers texting or talking – aggressive drivers speeding or following too close – drunk or drugged drivers – or truck drivers that are tired or inexperienced. No matter what caused your accident, Rob Kornfeld can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Compensation for your injuries should take the following into consideration:
#1 Medical Bills – Present and Future
After a serious accident, it’s always wise to immediately seek urgent medical attention for your injuries. But if your injuries were extensive, you may need future surgeries to repair damages or rehabilitation services to help you recover physical capabilities lost as a result of your injuries. You may be facing years of ongoing medical treatment – perhaps even life-long care. Rob will factor the comprehensive costs of all of your medical care (including future expenses) into the settlement he pursues for you.
#2 Permanent Disability or Scarring
If the accident has left you with significant scarring, a permanent disability such as loss of the use of a limb, loss of a limb or loss of consortium, this should be factored in to your compensation. In addition to the physical loss you’ve suffered, any impact this will have on your quality of life or ability to work should be factored into your injury claim. Rob’s assessment will consider your life prior to the accident, how much it is diminished as a result and pursue fair compensation based on the difference.
#3 Lost Wages – Present and Future
After your accident, if you missed work for treatment or recuperation, this will be part of your injury claim that a reputable accident lawyer like Rob will work to recover for you. If you miss time for follow-up doctor appointments or future surgeries, this should factor in. Finally, if your accident will prevent you from working at the same job you once did or from working full time or in any way limit your future earning potential, Rob will include this in calculating compensation he pursues for you.
#4 Pain and Suffering
One of the important components in your personal injury compensation is your pain and suffering. If your accident was particularly traumatic – if you were trapped in your vehicle while in pain, if you were burned, if you suffered extreme anguish during the accident, while being treated for your injuries or as a result of your injuries, this should be part of the settlement. If your pain will carry on for an extensive period of time (or the rest of your life) Rob will also factor this in to the settlement he seeks.
