Your husband is entitled to compensation for his: a) reasonable and necessary medical expenses; b) wage loss; c) pain and suffering and d) loss of a normal life ( also known as disability). The value of his claim depends on many factors, including the type of injury he sustained, the amount of medical bills he incurred and will likely incur in the future, his wage loss, the type of treatment he received and the duration of that treatment. If you would like to discuss those particular details, feel free to contact me.

How much is his wage loss? What kind of injury did he receive? How old is he. Who is at fault in the accident? Is there any contributory negligence? Assuming the other party is completely at fault, and your husbands injuries are all properly documented, a jury would consider his past and future wage loss, permanancy of the injury, past and future medical bills, and loss of normal life to arrive at a monetary award.

The total amount of money for pain and suffering will be up to the jury, so it is very hard to say precisely how much he could get. However, he should be entitled to the amount of money that he would have received if he was working at the time of the accident.

    No good lawyer would evaluate a case without seeing the evidence. Some not so good lawyers might do so and inflate the value of your case so you will hire them. In a nutshell, this good lawyer is unable to evaluate your case base on an e-mail inquiry.
