After an initial client who’s involved in a construction accident seeks out our representation and asks us the first question of how long is this going to take, the very next question is, how much money am I going to get? It’s important to understand, when you first seek out counsel in a case, it’s very hard to tell you exactly how much money you would put in your pocket or how much money you’ll be compensated for such an injury because there’s lots of factors involved. One of the most important factors is how you are going to do over time.
While we could look into the past medical history and we could understand what your injuries are up to this point, it’s very important to let it play out for a little bit to see how you’re going to do in the future. It’s very important that your attorney seeks out very fair compensation for you moving into the future. This will be for the future pain and suffering, how your life is going to be affected, wages that may be lost, future medical bills, and the pain and suffering that you may be experiencing 15 years down the line. While it might not be a non-stop agonizing pain, that’s not the point. Even if it’s something that prevents you from doing things that you’re normally used to doing – whether it’s something as basic as carrying your kids around on your back and running around or it was an exercise routine or something simpler as just getting out of bed quickly and taking those few steps – it’s important to understand how your life is going to be affected.
Once that is understood and once we have a better understanding of how you’re going to be, we have a much better sense of the proper compensation. I can tell you that it’s important that you hire an experienced lawyer who’s going to fight for every last dollar for you, and make sure that you’re fairly compensated. This is your one and only chance to get compensated. It’s important to hire a good, experienced attorney, someone who’s going to fight hard for you, so that you don’t look back one day and think you could have gotten more.
