After an accident and serious injuries, your physical health and recovery should be your priority. someone else caused your injuries, you should not have to cover your expenses and losses on your own, as the responsible party will be responsible for those losses.
To ensure that you receive full compensation for your losses, you need a law firm that seeks to maximize recovery for every injured client. At The Law Firm of David C. Chavez, 505-865-9696 we are committed to recover the full and complete amount for your damages. The following are some ways that we work to maximize your financial recovery.
Past and Future Medical Costs
If you are feeling any pain or discomfort following an accident, it is critical that you seek medical treatment right away. You can then rack up extensive medical bills for a variety of treatments, including:
- Diagnostic testing
- Hospitalization and ICU stays
- Surgery and aftercare
- Rehabilitation centers
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Medical equipment
- Specialist and follow-up appointments
- Home healthcare
Some people take their stack of doctor’s bills, add them up, and assume that is what they should recover. Our firm, however, knows there can be much more to medical costs than the bills you already received. For example, many injury victims will need ongoing treatment well after their claim is resolved. We always consider all future medical treatment you need, and we use medical experts when needed to accurately estimate the costs you will likely incur in the coming months and years. This works to maximize the compensation you receive for medical expenses.
Past and Future Lost Income
If your medical treatment or injury-related impairments kept you from working and you lost wages, you can add up the compensation you would have received during that time and seek compensation. Serious injuries can keep you out of work for months or never allowing you to return to work. Injuries can result in disabilities that permanently keep you out of work. We know how to consider and estimate your past and future lost income and earning abilities, to maximize your recovery.
There are other losses that are not tied to financial bills and expenses. We know how to calculate these losses so that you receive compensation for all the intangible losses you experienced, such as:
- Pain and suffering, past and future
- Loss of household services, past and future
- Loss of enjoyment of life, past and future
- Permanent disfigurement or disability
- Loss of consortium
These losses are valuable and should never be underestimated in an injury claim.
If someone’s misconduct that led to your injuries was reckless or intentional, you might be able to claim punitive damages. These are not based on the compensatory losses, but instead awarded to punish the wrongdoer. We will identify when these damages are available to maximize your financial recovery.
