Your child personal injury attorney in Peachtree City can go over the various damages you may be able to recover in a personal injury claim. The compensation available will depend on the severity of the accident and, thus, the types of expenses or losses you experience as a result.
Permanent disabilities and injuries involving disfigurement are usually entitled to additional compensation to provide continued care. If you are unsure if the injury qualifies as severe, ask your attorney.
Missed school or the ability to participate in activities once enjoyed can also be factored into the claim. Consideration for the experiences that the child will never be able to have because of a traumatic injury, such as brain damage, may also be included in your child injury claim.
Keep in mind that when legal counsel is considering the worth of a claim, they look beyond the wound or injury your child has sustained. An attorney will also consider his or her age, the severity of the damages, and the impact the damages will have financially, psychologically, socially, vocationally, and educationally.
On the other hand, the insurance company will look for ways to reduce the worth of your personal injury claim. Depending on the specifics of your situation, the insurance company may even try to put some of the blame on your child. In some cases, the insurance company may try to make a case that the injuries would have been less severe had the parent or child taken certain precautions.
