Damages in a car accident lawsuit

Recovering monetary damages is the primary remedy available to a plaintiff in a car accident lawsuit. This compensation can help the victim of a car crash pay off medical bills or replace wages lost due to injury. The types of compensation commonly sought in a car accident lawsuit include:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost wages
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium

With the help of a seasoned car accident attorney, you could successfully identify all of the types of damages available in your case.

The value of trial experience

Since 2002, we have recovered more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. While most of our cases resolve through settlement, the value of trial experience cannot be overstated.

In many cases, the other driver involved in the crash will have insurance. Their insurance company is likely to go to great lengths to avoid paying the true value of your claim. When motorists handle injury claims on their own, they are ripe for being taken advantage of. Insurance adjusters are trained to twist your words into admissions of guilt. They will then use these words against you– as grounds for denying your claim.

When you work with Douglas & London, you are dealing with a firm that has a well-earned reputation as fearless litigators. Insurance companies know hardball tactics will never work on us, as we are unafraid of taking a case to trial when the settlement offer is too low.
