7 Factors That Impact the Value of a Disfiguring Injury Claim

An accident that causes disfiguring injuries can have a life altering impact on both the victim and his or her family members. Although no amount of monetary compensation will undo the harm done, it can bring a sense of financial relief and a closure for the victim and his or her loved ones.

The value of your injury claim depends on various factors. Below are seven factors that can affect the value of a personal injury claim that involves disfiguring injuries. Personal Injury Claim

1. Future Medical Costs

This type of compensation is available if your Los Angeles personal injury lawyer can prove that you require future medical care caused by the accident that resulted in your disfiguring injury. In order to seek future medical costs, your attorney must provide proof from your treating physicians as to the approximate cost of that future care.

2. House and Living Services

Hiring someone to help around the home while you recover from injuries can be expensive. In some cases, you may need permanent help because the extent of your injuries may prevent you from doing the activities that you once could prior to the accident. These types of damages could be a line item in the future medical costs of your injury.

3. Loss of Enjoyment of Life

A reduced ability to enjoy the pleasure of life can lead to significant emotional distress, including depression and thoughts of suicide. Loss of enjoyment can be included in general damages. It can be difficult to put a precise monetary value on this item.

4. Loss of Earning Capacity

A disfiguring accident can prevent you from going back to work and earning a living. If your LA accident attorney can prove that your earning capacity has been affected by the injuries you suffered in the accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation.

Factors that will determine if such an award should be made include:

  • Age
  • Life expectancy
  • Occupation
  • Experience and training
  • Overall health

5. Loss of Wages

Loss of employment damages refers to how much you could have earned had you not suffered this catastrophic accident. You could be entitled to recover wages even if you were unemployed at the time of the accident.

6. Medical Costs

Any expenses and bills for medical services can also be recovered in your personal injury claim, including doctor’s bills, hospital bills, imaging, rehabilitation and chiropractic care.
