What Type of Compensation Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me Recover?

- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damages
Non-economic damages are more subjective and are different in every personal injury case. Some of the commonly awarded non-economic damages include:

Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Collect Punitive Damages?
Brent Adams & Associates may be able to help you collect punitive damages. The compensation we may be able to recover on your behalf will strongly depend on the unique circumstances that surround your case. Punitive damages are awarded to punish the responsible party if it can be demonstrated they acted willfully and wantonly without any regard for the health and safety of the injury victim.
A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will need to review the facts in your case to determine if they meet the legal criteria of liability to pursue punitive damages. Under North Carolina law, punitive damages are capped at $250,000 or three times the amount of compensatory damages, whichever is greater.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?
One of the most critical aspects most clients are concerned about in recovering a personal injury settlement is having enough money to cover future medical care. If you have sustained severe injuries, you may need long-term medical treatment, such as rehabilitation, that can become costly over time. Even with health insurance coverage, expenses for minor injuries can create financial hardship if you are taken to the hospital after being injured.
One of the most important benefits of hiring a personal injury attorney is that they can review your case and determine how much money you should need to cover future medical costs.
The personal injury lawyers of Brent Adams & Associates are also highly skilled when it comes to negotiating with insurance companies. Often an insurance company will try to have an insurance adjuster reach out to a client to try and reach a quick settlement. Unfortunately, although the settlement offer may seem substantial at first glance, it most likely falls short of providing the money you need to pay all your expenses. Therefore, you should first consult a personal injury lawyer before you make an agreement with an insurance company.
Our law firm can negotiate with the insurance carrier to obtain the compensation you need to gain peace of mind and focus on your recovery. We pledge to act as your legal advocate with the insurer as we seek compensation for your injury case. The other party will most likely have an attorney working hard to defend them, and you will need a lawyer who can provide you with solid legal advice as you move forward with your lawsuit.
