Recovering Your Damages
Although we tailor our strategies around the specific circumstances involved in your case, our primary goal is always to secure the maximum compensation possible. In order to accomplish this, we draw from more than 90 years of combined experience to conduct investigations that secure evidence needed to establish liability of the at-fault party and the extent of your damages.
Although cases vary, we strive to secure the following types of compensation as applicable to each unique situation:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost work wages and future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Grief, mental anguish, and other emotional damages
- All economic damages incurred as the result of an accident and / or injury
In addition to recovering these damages, our legal team also works to secure punitive damages when necessary. While punitive damages are not awarded in every case, they can allow victims to maximize their compensation while further punishing wrongdoers for gross acts of negligence and / or intentional misconduct.
By using our extensive litigation and personal injury law experience, our Washington, DC catastrophic injury attorneys can present clear and convincing evidence that attests to the at-fault party’s negligence or misconduct and secure the maximum compensation possible.
