Personal Injury Settlements
Through a personal injury lawsuit, an injured party seeks monetary damages from the party responsible for their losses and suffering. A personal injury settlement is reached when both parties agree to an amount of monetary redress in order to avoid a trial. If you or someone you love has been injured and you believe it was the fault of some other person, business, or entity, you may wish to a Las Vegas personal injury settlement.
The amount of the settlement varies but you should never agree on any amount without consulting a qualified personal injury lawyer first. People are often treated unscrupulously if they do not have legal representation following a significant personal injury or illness. A person’s own insurance company may even mistreat them when a settlement is concerned. An experienced and aggressive law firm can pursue the maximum amount that you may be eligible to receive for your losses.
Compensation for Damages
A personal injury settlement may include compensation for the following damages:
- pain and suffering
- medical expenses
- loss of past and future wages
- earning potential
- many more
