If you or someone you love was injured because of another person’s negligence, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and related expenses. Treating your injuries is only one portion of your potential personal injury claim. You still have a claim if your health insurance paid your medical bills.
A personal injury lawyer will help you create a detailed list of your recoverable damages and ensure the financial value assigned to your case is accurate. Your lawyer will build a strong case file that includes evidence of the cause and cost of your injuries. Your lawyer will handle communication with the at-fault party and their insurer. He or she will also negotiate a fair and appropriate settlement of your remaining expenses and losses.
Medical Bills Are Only One Part of Economic Compensation
Depending on the extent of your injuries, your resulting medical bills can be extensive. You can recover any medical care not covered by health insurance from the at-fault party, including rehabilitative care. However, if you’ve received all the medical care you need, and it’s already been paid for, you can still claim other damages.
You can recoup the income you lose due to your physical or psychological injuries, including for work you miss during your recovery. This includes full and part-time income and freelance or gig economy income. Loss of your future earning capacity is also recoverable as part of your case.

Non-Economic Compensation Can Cover Your Personal and Interpersonal Losses
In addition to economic damages, you can recover the costs of non-economic damages. These are subjective and a little bit more difficult to quantify. Your lawyer can help you evaluate the extent of your physical and emotional losses to assess your pain and suffering compensation.
Permanent Impairment and Disfigurement
These damages can vary greatly based on your case and the toll your accident took on you. In personal injury cases, impairment and disfigurement can indicate permanent physical injuries. These injuries can also demonstrate lasting changes in your physical capabilities and appearance.
Pain and Suffering
These damages compensate you for the physical, mental, and emotional pain you experience because of your injuries. This could include trauma, loss of relationships, or inconveniences you face because of your limitations.
A Lawyer Can Help You Accurately Assess Your Recoverable Damages
It can be easier than you think to miscalculate the damages you can recover from a personal injury claim. Your lawyer will ensure none of the damages you are entitled to recover are overlooked or omitted.
They will also document your recoverable damages with:
- Medical records
- Future prognosis
- Rehabilitation records
- Therapy records
- Proof of income
- Property repair bills
A lawyer can also consult medical, economic, and other experts. They will ensure all receipts and bills are included when the value of your case is assessed.
Additional Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer for Your Personal Injury Case
When you work with our lawyers, we will have familiarity with state and county laws that may benefit your case. Our personal injury law firm will:
- Investigate and collect evidence
- Prepare and file your case
- Complete and submit claim forms
- Handle written and verbal communication
- Hire expert witnesses and consultants
- Locate and interview witnesses
After your lawyer has constructed a strong case, negotiations will begin with the liable party’s insurer. Insurance companies are often hesitant to pay what injury victims deserve, so they may try to offer low settlements that don’t represent your losses, especially if you’ve already had your medical treatment paid for.
Your lawyer will screen these unfair offers and fight to make sure your settlement represents the full extent of your losses. We know the manipulative tactics insurance companies use to protect their bottom line, and we won’t let them get away with it.

Our law firm will represent you on a contingency-fee basis. This fee agreement means your lawyer will only receive compensation after we obtain it for you. If your case does not result in a financial award, you won’t owe anything. There is no charge for a lawyer simply to investigate your case.
