How Much Is My Personal Injury Worth?
Like every person, no two personal injury cases are alike. The type and severity of your injuries and the way they affect your life are unique to you and your family. A one-size-fits-all approach to compensation for damages would not work. Instead, Idaho law allows victims to pursue full compensation for all the harm the negligent party caused them.
Insurance companies do everything they can to minimize how much compensation you get after an accident. The initial settlement offer the adjuster makes is often not enough to cover your medical bills, let alone your other damages. At The Bendell Law Firm, PLLC, we believe you deserve fair and full compensation for your major injuries. Our attorney, Jim Bendell, has served northern Idaho with excellent personal injury representation for more than 40 years. He will research exactly what you are entitled to in compensation and work toward a fair outcome that keeps your family financially stable.
Past And Future Economic Damages
Your damages include costs you have already incurred, such as bills for medical care you have received and wages you lost from time spent out of work. But you may also be entitled to compensation for expected future damages, such as the cost of future surgeries and physical rehabilitation your doctor predicts you will need. If you do not expect to be able to return to work anytime soon, or at least at the same income level you used to earn, your lost future earnings could also be grounds for compensation.
Noneconomic Damages, Too
Not every way your injuries have harmed your life comes with a clear dollar figure attached. But the reduced quality of your life, the pain and suffering you have endured, and other noneconomic damages are just as real. However, Idaho caps the amount you can receive in noneconomic damages.
