We Will Thoroughly Investigate Every Aspect of Your Case
Some attorneys care more about their bottom line than about offering personalized representation. They take on far too many cases and are therefore unable to give each client the individual attention that they deserve. We take a different approach at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. Our attorneys meticulously investigate every case so we have an edge before we enter settlement negotiations. Because each personal injury claim is unique, the types of evidence used can vary immensely from case to case. With years of experience and a comprehensive understanding of California personal injury law, the Newport Beach accident lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will know the types of evidence needed to prove your claim based on the facts of your case. Much of this evidence might be difficult to access without the assistance of an attorney. For example, if you were hurt in a trip or slip and fall accident, the owner of the business might be reluctant to give you a copy of the surveillance footage. If you were hurt in a commercial truck accident, the owner of the truck might not be willing to hand over the black box data. If you were injured by a distracted driver, you may be able to strengthen your case by getting the at-fault motorist’s cell phone records. The Newport Beach injury attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can help you compile this evidence, which may be essential for winning your case. We can also consult expert witnesses if we believe their testimony could help strengthen your claim.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
The process of calculating the value of economic and non-economic damages involves complicated formulas and, in many cases, the input of experts in the medical, financial, vocational, and other fields. That said, it is not possible to estimate the potential value of a particular claim without first performing a thorough investigation. Once hired, your Newport Beach personal injury attorney from Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will explain the factors that will influence the outcome of your case and the amount of compensation you might be able to recover. Those factors include:
- The Severity of Your Injuries: Medical bills typically make up a significant portion of economic damages awards in personal injury cases. Your claim can include past and future medical expenses including surgeries, diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, and other treatments.
- The Amount of Time You Were Sidelined from Work: Your claim can also include any income you have lost and will lose due to your injuries, as well as compensation for loss of earning capacity.
- The Cost of Property Damage: If your property was damaged in the accident, you can include the cost of repairs in your claim.
- The Cost of Other Injury-Related Expenses: Medical bills, lost income, and property repairs are not the only expenses incurred in serious accidents. Your claim can also include other injury-related costs such as home-care, daycare, and home modifications.
- Whether You Suffered Disability or Disfigurement: You may be awarded non-economic damages if you suffered a permanent disability or disfigurement.
- How Your Injuries Occurred: If the party that caused your injuries acted with malice, oppression, or fraud, you may be able to recover punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages.
