Forms of Compensation You May Require

How much compensation do you need to cover your damages that resulted from your accident? Each claim will be different from the next, and so no two claims will need exactly the same amount or for the same reasons. With the help of Attorney Russ Baker, you can get a better idea of how much compensation you should seek in your claim.

Damages that could be relevant to your own personal injury claim are:

  • Initial and emergency medical attention
  • Hospitalization for weeks or more
  • Ongoing rehabilitative care or therapy
  • Lost or missing wages
  • Reduced feeling of enjoyment in life due to disability
  • Emotional trauma, pain, and suffering

Basic Components of a Personal Injury Claim

If you want to win a fair and maximized compensation amount, your claim needs to include the three basic components of any claim.

The three components of a valid personal injury claim are:

  1. Injury occurred: There must be actual evidence of your injury. If you do not file your claim right away and wait for your injury to heal, medical records can suffice to show that the damage has been done. Claims are generally stronger when filed soon after the accident or incident, however.
  2. Injury was caused by negligent party: Perhaps the most difficult part of any personal injury claim, liability must be established and linked clearly to the negligent party that caused you harm. Attorney Baker’s investigative skills come in handy when reviewing your evidence to prove liability does not lie on you.
  3. Injury caused considerable damages: You can only collect compensation if compensation is needed. A person who has suffered a minor injury from a third-party but required no medical attention and experienced no major inconvenience may not be able to file a claim.

With all three of these components in place, your claim should be viewed as valid before the court. In case you are not confident that your claim is legally valid, the Law Office of Russ Baker can be of assistance during a free initial consultation.
