Compassionate Counsel for Wrongful Death Cases
While most of our time is spent helping the wrongfully injured with personal injury claims, we do accept wrongful death claims filed by the family members of people who have passed away in fatal accidents. Wrongful death claims are as sensitive as they are essential to moving forward. When they are successful, the act of securing fair compensation can become a starting point for closure. If you need help managing a claim after losing a loved one, then please know that you can count on our Albany attorneys to handle everything carefully and tactfully, so you will never feel like your emotions are being ignored in such an important time of grieving.
Compensation for Personal Injury Claimants
What compensation is available to you as a personal injury claimant? The answer will depend based on how your injury has affected you. For the most part, though, personal injury claimants can demand a handful of different damages.
The damages likely available in your personal injury claim are:
- Medical costs: All necessary medical treatments related to your injuries should be paid for by the defendant.
- Lost wages: If you lost money due to missing work as you tried to recover, then you can demand those wages in your claim.
- Pain and suffering: The emotional, mental, and physical toll of your injuries can be calculated in dollar amounts through pain and suffering damages.
In rare circumstances, a personal injury claimant can be eligible to seek punitive damages, too. Punitive damages are assigned by a court to further punish the defendant for inexcusable behavior or wrongdoing. For example, a surgeon who worsened your injuries because they were intoxicated while operating on you could be ordered to pay extensive punitive damages to you.
Our Contingency Fees Make Seeking Compensation Easy
Our Albany personal injury attorneys offer contingency fee agreements for the cases we accept. Contingency fees mean that you don’t have to pay any attorney fees unless we end your case with a settlement or jury award in your favor. It is a simple way to make exploring your legal options and pursuing a claim practically risk-free for you, so you don’t have to wonder if you can afford a lawyer – with this system, you can!
