Past, present and future damages for personal injury claims

On Behalf of | Jan 16, 2020 | personal injury | 0 comments

A personal injury claim provides a way for victims of another person’s negligence to hold that party accountable for their options. Anyone who has suffered an injury should learn about the option for seeking compensation for the damages related to the accident.

If you opt to pursue a claim for compensation, you need to ensure that you can tie the damages to the injury and the injury to the accident. We understand that this might seem like a daunting task, but we are here to help you get your case together so that you can move forward with it.

Remember, there are time limits in place for all sorts of legal actions in Kentucky. This includes personal injury claims, which have a time limit of only one year after the accident, so you can’t waste time when you need to get your case filed. Fortunately, we are here to handle the legal side of the matter while you focus on your healing.

When we are getting your case together, we need to determine the monetary amount for damages that you will seek. This can include a host of types, including medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering and similar ones. It is important for you to include the damages that you already know about, but we also need to include the ones that you will likely incur in the future.

Because we can’t see into the future, we have to find ways to determine what damages you might incur. We can often do this by looking into similar cases to see what precedents were set.
