Thousands of people die every year in car accidents, and many more suffer significant injuries and damages. Unfortunately, most automobile accidents are the result of someone’s negligent or reckless actions. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car accident, you may have a claim against the responsible party to compensate you for your losses.
Attorneys at Tillmann Law fight to secure financial recoveries for those who have suffered injuries and damages in car accidents. If someone else was responsible for your car accident injuries, you might be entitled to compensation under a personal injury claim. Contact our office online or by calling (503) 683-8113 for a free consultation with a car accident attorney.
Our attorneys frequently receive inquiries from clients and potential clients about how much their claim is worth, and the answer is that it depends. Every car accident has its own set of facts and circumstances. In general, your claim value is based on the severity of your accident-related injuries and damages.
In Idaho, car accident compensation may include current and future economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are out-of-pocket expenses with an affixed monetary value, such as lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical bills, and future anticipated medical expenses.
Non-economic damages do not have a set monetary value, so their calculations are more subjective. These damages are sometimes referred to as pain and suffering damages, and they refer to the nonmonetary losses that the claimant has suffered as a result of the car accident. Considerations for nonmonetary compensation include the nature of the injuries, physical and mental pain and suffering, disfigurement, impairment, and aggravated conditions.
