A person who was injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence is entitled to noneconomic damages. Noneconomic damages refer to the impact of the injury to the injured person’s quality of life. These damages are not readily measurable financially. Examples of noneconomic damages include emotional distress, loss of consortium, scarring and disfigurement, and pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of hobbies, etc.
However, the injured person may not know that his or her chances of claiming noneconomic damages increase when he or she fights back and files a personal injury lawsuit instead of accepting the settlement offered by the insurance company.
Without proper guidance from an experienced personal injury attorney, the injured person may be tempted to accept an insurance settlement without questioning whether the settlement was fair and just.
AV, AV Preeminent, Distinguished, and Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards, and policies. For more information, visit https://www.martindale.com/ratings-and-reviews/.
