Money is the main thing you can recover in a personal injury claim. We can’t travel through time, so you can’t go back and change what happened. Only the Courts and the District Attorneys can prosecute criminal cases, so you can’t put someone in jail with a personal injury case (although you can and should cooperate with the District Attorney if criminal charges were filed as a result of someone else injuring you.) Here’s what you can recover, depending on the facts of your case:

▶︎  Greater safety for you and your family, by changing the defendant’s conduct

▶︎  Past, present, and future medical expenses

▶︎  Past, present, and future lost income

▶︎  Past, present, and future pain and suffering

▶︎  Property damage to your vehicle (including damages for a rental vehicle), home, or other personal property

▶︎  Compensation for disfigurement (for injuries that involve scarring, amputations, etc)

▶︎  Emotional and psychological injury

▶︎  Changes to policies or procedures of corporate defendants

▶︎  Punitive damages for particularly dangerous conduct

Not every personal injury claim will have facts to support all of these things, but the first five items above are present in just about every case. Lots of factors affect what you can recover and how, and the only safe way to know what your options are is to consult with an experienced lawyer. At the Miller Law Group, our attorneys combine to bring over fifty years of legal expertise and over 100 jury trials to serve you. The consultation is free, and if we don’t think you’ll do better with us than without, we’ll tell you so, but we’ll also tell you how you can resolve the case on your own.
