In modern society, we generally do not head out into the world worried about being injured by another person—a luxury made possible by laws that require strict adherence to safety and duty of care. However, drivers speed, businesses cut corners, and physicians make mistakes, all of which is an inevitable aspect of society that still has a long way to go before eradicating senseless, debilitating accidents. If you were injured in a traffic collision, by a slip and fall, or on the job, the Belvidere personal injury lawyers of Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Lt. are here to help you recover compensation.
The average workers’ compensation claim pays out over $22,000 in medical expenses and lost wages, according to OSHA. The average traumatic brain injury costs 85,000 for a mild head injury, $941,000 for a moderate injury, and $3 million for a severe injury, according to brainandspinalcord.org. However, it is impossible to estimate what you can expect to receive in compensation for your injuries at this early stage. The first question that most injured victims have is regarding how much their claim is worth. This is a complicated question, as it depends on many factors that will not be known until months after the incident. It takes time to compile the true costs, such as medical expenses, lost wages, future disability, and disfigurement associated with a personal injury. However, a general rule of thumb is that the higher the medical expenses, the higher the “value” of your claim.
