Compensation in a Personal Injury Case
In the state of Alabama, compensation, or “damages,” may be either economic or non-economic in nature. Depending on the specifics of your personal injury case, you may be eligible for compensation for one or both of the following types of losses:
- Economic damages are compensation for losses that are quantifiable and expressed in monetary terms. These are the specific financial costs associated with an accident, including medical expenses, property damage repair costs, and lost income/wages as a result of time off work to heal your injuries. The best way to document economic damages is to keep track of all medical records, repair receipts, paystubs, and timecards.
- Noneconomic damages are compensation for intangible losses, such as “pain and suffering,” associated with an accident, including loss of mobility, loss of enjoyment of life, or emotional/psychological trauma. The best way to document noneconomic damages is to keep track of all counseling/therapy appointments and to keep a journal or diary of your post-accident life. Your journal should document how the accident and your injuries have impacted your daily life.
Personal Injury FAQs
You may have a few more questions regarding the specifics of a personal injury case with Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP. We’ve included a few of the most commonly asked questions for your convenience.
I’ve been involved in an accident. What should I do?
Don’t panic. After making sure no one needs immediate medical attention, be sure to document the scene as best you can by taking pictures of any damaged property or injuries sustained. Avoid talking with the other involved party/parties except to exchange insurance information so you can avoid any accidental admission of guilt. Call Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP to connect with an attorney and discuss the details of your personal injury case.
How much does it cost to hire a Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP attorney?
Although it may be more affordable, it’s hard to take on a personal injury case on your own, as you may be unfamiliar with the local and federal regulations surrounding such lawsuits. At Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP, we believe that each of our clients is entitled to the same high-quality legal care, regardless of their financial means. Because of this, we take cases on a contingency basis, meaning you will not be required to pay anything until we have secured compensation for you in your personal injury case.
When should I file a lawsuit?
In the state of Alabama, you are given a window of two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. This statute of limitations deadline means if you want your case to be heard in court, you will need to file within this two-year timeframe.
