What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?
One of the most common questions we get regarding personal injury law in Springfield, IL is about compensation. Clients want to know how much they will receive for their case. The amount you will receive depends on a few different factors. In most personal injury cases, you can expect to receive compensation for damages relating to…
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future wage losses
- Ongoing therapy
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Property damages
In a small number of cases, the court will request punitive damages against a malicious defendant to punish for extreme reckless behavior. To determine how much you can expect, you need to talk to one of our attorneys at Carter Law Offices.
How Can I Afford an Attorney?
It is a common misconception that personal injury attorneys are too expensive for the average person. In fact, most personal injury attorneys work on a contingent fee basis that requires no money upfront. Instead, their attorney fees are taken out of the settlement or judgment you receive. That means if you don’t receive any compensation, you don’t have to pay anything. Let us assist you with your case! You have nothing to lose.
