What is my Fort Walton Beach Personal Injury case worth?

When an injury lawyer estimates a dollar amount for settlement, it is important that they allow for a range of issues, including the client’s physical injuries and the impact of a client’s psychological injuries. The long-term effects of the accident can be felt long after the physical injuries have been successfully treated. That is why an experienced personal injury lawyer should consider how an accident might impact the rest of their client’s life.

Personal injuries such as disfigurement or permanent disability can cause a lifelong challenge for an accident victim. Consideration must also be given to severe emotional damages such as the victim’s “pain and suffering.” As a recurring part of a victim’s daily life, his or her pain and suffering can be a very real and often debilitating personal injury. In support of our client’s case, we retain the professional services of premier medical doctors and psychologists for their analysis and expert testimony in personal injury and wrongful death cases.

As for the non-physical impact of your personal damages, we also use non-medical experts such as economists who can calculate an accident victim’s financial losses, or a vocational rehabilitation expert who can determine the costs and impact of occupational retraining. If the injuries you received in the accident force you to train for a different job role, the availability of new jobs in that career field and the potential for your future earnings can also be included in the total amount of your case.

A major challenge for today’s personal injury lawyer is the determination of costs for the long-term effects that an accident may have on the victim’s life. For example, the impact of damages from an accident involving personal injury or wrongful death can affect:

  • Loss of Income & Potential Loss of Employment
  • Unforeseen Costs of Future Medical Care
  • Costs for Rehabilitation & Physical Therapy
  • Vocational Therapy & Costs of Re-Training
  • Victim’s Mental Health or Emotional State
  • Severity of Victim’s Pain and Suffering

A family’s future income and security can immediately be impacted by an unexpected auto accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, nursing home accident, and other personal injury, or by an accidental death. You don’t have to face the big insurance companies alone. To find out how our personal injury attorneys can help with your claim, call the Law Office of J.J. Talbott at (850) 437-9600 or use our website’s convenient contact form for a prompt email response.
