What Kind of Settlement Can a Houston Whiplash Attorney Help You Secure?
Your Houston whiplash lawyer can help you recover various forms of compensation related to your injury, including:
- Medical treatment expenses like emergency transport, x-rays and scans, surgery, medications, and follow-up physical therapy
- Lost wages and other work-related benefits like health insurance coverage if you miss work or lose your employment due to your injury
- Pain and suffering damages experienced from the physical discomfort of your injury to the psychological harm caused by the stress
While some whiplash injuries have the ability to fully heal with time, rest, and proper medical treatment, some can lead to or exacerbate permanent injuries.
For example, a whiplash injury to an elderly person during a nursing home accident could severely impair their mobility for the rest of their life. A whiplash injury combined with other injuries from a motorcycle accident could lead to full-body paralysis.
The amount of compensation you receive will depend on what your lawyer can prove in negotiations with insurance reps or the other party's attorneys. For “invisible” losses like your enjoyment of life, it takes an experienced litigator with a network of proven expert witnesses to secure all that you are entitled to.
