Getting injured in a preventable accident can be a confusing and worrisome experience. Often, people who are injured through no fault of their own are concerned about how they are going to pay for their medical expenses or continue to pay for their living expenses. They may also be concerned about how they will be able to afford the expense associated with hiring an attorney. Fortunately, a personal injury attorney is available to anyone who has been injured in an accident, regardless of their financial situation. The experienced personal injury lawyers of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are available to meet with people who believe they may have a personal injury claim at no charge and without any ongoing obligation.
Personal injury cases are generally handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning that the attorney handling the case only gets paid if his or her client receives a favorable outcome. This system works well because it allows for clients to obtain representation in situations where they otherwise may not be able to afford it. In addition, it aligns the interests of the attorney with the client’s in a very tangible way, ensuring that the attorney provides zealous representation and works to obtain the highest possible settlement or award.
There are many types of damages that may be available in a personal injury case, including for both economic and non-economic losses. Economic damages are awarded for ascertainable financial losses such as medical expenses, lost income, loss of future earnings, or rehabilitative care. Non-economic damages can include compensation for losses such as pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, loss of companionship, or inability to engage in sexual activity.
