You suffered losses due to someone else’s conduct. You are entitled to recover not only those losses but also other categories of damages. How an attorney develops and proves your damages directly impacts the type and number of damages you recover through settlement or jury verdict.
Gill Law Firm has deep experience in mediation, complex negotiations and jury damages presentations. We have requested multi-million-dollar damages awards at trials. Juries responded, awarding our clients million-dollar verdicts based on our damages presentations. These presentations require diligent and sophisticated consideration of our clients, their losses, and the losses they likely will suffer in the future. We appreciate a client can never come back to a jury years later and request more money. The time is now.
Personal injury damages are categorized in three ways:
Special damages are quantifiable damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, lost future income, future medical care and property damage. Proving special damages requires a comprehensive evaluation of how an injury has impacted a client in the past, currently and in the future.
General damages are less quantifiable. It is the trial attorney’s duty to compellingly quantify these damages to insurance adjustors, mediators and jurors. These damages include categories difficult to quantify artfully, such as pain and suffering, loss of the enjoyment of life (Hedonic) and loss of consortium (loss of all or a part of relationships).
Punitive Damages are damages based on the defendant’s actions. In some cases, exemplary or punitive damages can be developed to motivate a jury to punish the defendants and prevent similar injuries or death to others.
We handle personal injury cases
Personal injury or wrongful death can be caused by premises liability, vehicle collisions, Adult Protective Services Act (“APSA”), sexual assault, slips and falls and other mechanisms.
Our firm handles all these cases with high skill, care, and compassion.
How we can help prove damages
Pursuing damages can be a long, painful process. However, the investment of time and resources is well worth it because of the impact of the injuries and the lifelong toll it will take on your family. Additionally, because our firm offers contingency fee representation, you won’t pay anything unless and until we recover compensation for you.
Recovering all damages you suffered, are suffering or will suffer requires expert attorneys with experience in the trenches fighting for every dollar against defense attorneys highly skilled at convincing juries you are not entitled to anything.
