I Was In A Car Accident. What Can I Recover?
Our experienced Pittsburgh personal injury attorneys fight for your rights
If you have been injured in a car accident as a result of negligent conduct, you are entitled to receive a monetary award to compensate you for your injuries. Many people aren’t familiar with how the process of recovering compensation works or understand why it can be complicated. At Romanow Law Group, our experienced car accident lawyers can guide you through the process every step of the way.
Since there is no magic wand or time machine that can erase the physical, emotional and financial harm suffered by an injury victim, the only way that the civil justice system can right the wrong is by placing a dollar value on the harm caused and awarding that amount to the injured party. It is your personal injury lawyer’s job to ensure that you recover a fair amount.
What must car accident victims prove to recover damages?
A negligent party is responsible for all damages which flow from his or her wrongful conduct. Calculating monetary damages in car accident cases is not a perfect science and there is no exact mathematical formula to calculate the value of an injured party’s losses.
Should a car accident claim proceed to trial, there is a Suggested Standard Jury Instruction in Pennsylvania, which advises the jury as to the purpose of an award of damages, stating that it should represent an amount which the jury believes “will fairly and adequately compensate the plaintiff for all of the physical and financial injury he (she) has sustained as the result of the accident.” Compensable damages include past and future loss of earnings or impairment of earning capacity, past and future expenses for medical care and rehabilitation, and physical pain and suffering, including the loss of life’s pleasures.
Our car accident lawyers are experienced at negotiating the damages components of our clients’ claims. Since money is the only recourse in a civil matter, it is critical that your lawyer has the skillset to maximize the value of your claim. At our firm, clients are family and we do everything that the law allows to ensure that they recover everything legally allowed.
