Serious injuries that result from an accident are often covered under personal injury claims. Such injuries can be from one of any of a number of personal injury accidents: car accidents, animal attacks, defective products, premises liability, and more. All serious and catastrophic injuries have terrible emotional and psychological side effects, due to their debilitating nature and the lasting effects they can have on the victim’s quality of life and ability to function as he or she did before the accident.
The Drake Law Firm is dedicated to helping individuals who have suffered serious injuries as a result of another person’s fault. Our personal injury attorney understands that the future may not look very bright at the moment. With our help, however, you may be able to receive a large settlement or judgment that will help you survive financially. Not only could you and your family continue to survive even with your lost wages, but you could have the money to receive additional treatments that may help to fix any scarring, disfigurement, or otherwise permanent injury.
The Drake Law Firm will personally handle your cases in the following car accident areas, among others:
- Construction accidents
- Dog bite injury
- Premises liability
- Product liability
- Slip and fall injury
- Wrongful death
Because serious injuries have such an impact on the victim’s life, our lawyers are committed to helping to ensure that our clients receive the maximum amount of damages recoverable by law. Some of the items for which injured parties are legally entitled to include:
- Past and future lost wages
- Damages for both physical and emotional pain and suffering, past and present
- Damages for disfigurement
- Medical expenses
Additional damages may be sought out. Sometimes, a close family member of the seriously injured person, such as a spouse, may be entitled to damages referred to as “loss of consortium damages,” which are intended to compensate the family member for the loss of the injured party’s services and companionship. Other kinds of damages may include “hedonic damages,” which are awarded to compensate the victim for the loss of enjoyment of activities that he or she once valued but can no longer participate in as a result of the serious injuries suffered.
