How to Determine the Value of an Injury Claim

When you have been injured due to negligence, it is easy to become overwhelmed with all of the details that are required to file a successful injury claim. Our injury attorney at the Law Office of Donald R. Strickland understands the importance of organizing these details to ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your suffering. Our attorney has the experience you need to battle insurance companies' negotiations and demands.

Insurance companies use the following types of damages to determine the amount of compensation that you may be owed:

  • Special Damages- These types of damages are also known as "economic" losses and they represent the tangible amounts that you have lost as a result of your injury due to negligence. These damages may include hospital bills or repair bills.
  • General Damages- These types of damages are also known as "non-economic" losses. They represent the types of damages that are immeasurable after an accident due to negligence. These types of damages may include emotional trauma or pain and suffering.

If you believe that you have grounds to file an injury claim, contact our dedicated attorney for more information on how to receive maximum compensation. You can also take a look at our case results and client reviews to see how we have helped other accident victims in the past.
