What is an Accident Attorney?

Types of Compensation

In accident cases, you can typically initiate a claim for both property damages and personal injuries. For property damages, the usual initial consideration involves if you were at fault or not. If you were the person at fault, then you should generally seek reimbursement or repairs from your own insurance provider. However, if you were not at fault, then the general remedy is to seek reimbursement or compensation from the insurance provider of the other party. In cases of hit-and-runs or if you live in a no-fault state, you may be allowed to seek compensation even from your own insurance provider even you were not at fault. Remember that irrespective of the source from which you will seek your claim, their initial offer will most likely be low or insufficient, and it would be beneficial to hire an attorney to negotiate on your behalf.

In the case of physical injuries, the factors to be considered will include your medical claims, required treatments for recovery, and compensation for your lost income. You should also include any claims arising from any emotional or mental anguish since the Court can grant awards or damages on the basis of this. Apart from this, other factors that an attorney can help you evaluate include the loss of any potential earning capacity on your part, loss of enjoyment of life, or loss of intimacy or support.
