When a judge or jury finds the defendant liable for wrongful conduct in a personal injury case, the issue then becomes what types of damages are due to the plaintiff, and in what amount. As you know, if you suffer a personal injury you’ll likely require medical attention and may need rehabilitation, all of which costs substantial sums of money. You may lose income (and/or have to use up “sick time”) because of the injury, and you may continue to lose income while treatment and recovery takes place. You may have sustained property damage to your car and other property. Since you can’t drive your vehicle while it is being repaired, you may have to rent one, and car repairs and rentals can cost money. You may also lose the ability to perform various activities of normal daily living, for a while or permanently. You may also endure significant pain and suffering, which may be ongoing as well.

The law permits you to seek recovery after an accident to “make you whole again.” The central concept is that you should be compensated in a manner that, as best as the law can arrange, places you back in the same position as you were before the accident. In most personal injury actions the plaintiff must have been injured in some way to be entitled to damages. For example, in negligence cases, we must prove that you suffered injury (some type of physical, emotional or monetary harm) for the defendant to be required to pay compensation to you. However, with some intentional torts (such as battery, assault or trespass) we may only have to show that the defendant engaged in the unauthorized conduct, without proving that you suffered actual physical harm, in order to recover damages (though damages in these situations are often nominal absent serious injury).

Three basic kinds of damages are awarded in personal injury cases: compensatory damages, punitive damages and nominal damages.

In all matters involving personal injury it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and to file a lawsuit prior to the deadline imposed by the statute of limitations.

Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.

  • Kristi and Marsha worked tirelessly on my case. They answered all of my phone calls, had an answer for every question I asked (I asked quite a bit) and were always friendly and polite. They worked in a super timely manner and kept me updated all throughout. They also made sure that everything was thoroughly checked over before progressing further. I’d highly recommend them to anyone! They’re all-stars! Thanks guys!

  • Archie and I cannot say enough good things about Dan. It is so important, and sometimes difficult to find someone who is honest, ethical, and keeps their word. Dan is all of this and more. He was patient with us, helped us to understand the process, and he always put our best interest first. We are so appreciative of him and all he did for us. We would highly recommend Saladino & Schaaf to anyone.

  • Dan took my case and ran, he was very honest with his thoughts on it. He managed to get more out of it than he or I thought would come from it. If you are injured and need an attorney call Dan Stratemeyer.
