WHAT ARE THE FACTORS THAT DETERMINE THE SETTLEMENT?

“Pain and Suffering” Compensation

The law considers compensation for your pain, suffering and detriment to your well being. “Pain and Suffering” can also include compensation for emotional distress and mental anguish as a result of your injury.

Compensation for Future Loss of Income and Earning Ability

The law considers compensation for wages or self-employment income which you have lost. It usually extends from the date your injury occurred until you were able to return to work. Any permanent injuries you may have suffered as the result of your injury may interfere with your ability to work and earn income — possibly for the rest of your working life. The law allows for you to be compensated for your lost earning capacity. In addition, your earning ability may be hindered because your opportunities to pursue certain career choices or promotions is delayed or compromised by any disability caused by your injury. The law allows for compensation in this matter as well.

Compensation for Future Care

The law allows for the consideration of future expenses that you will incur and which are medically justified due to your injury. In serious injury cases, this can include the expenses in making a house, vehicle and workplace fully accessible to you. It can also include nursing care necessary to facilitate independent living. Future care compensation may also include the cost of medication, surgery, counseling, home and workplace modifications, retraining and other expenses that will help you resume living your life.

Medical Bills

You are entitled to be compensated for medical expenses (past and future) for injuries caused by the negligence of another party.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages, although rare, may be awarded in cases where the conduct of the defendant(s) are viewed as extreme and shocking. Punitive damages are directed not at compensating you, but rather punishing the defendant for particularly blameworthy behavior. It is meant to deter the defendant and others from indulging in similar acts again.
