What kind of compensation should you seek?

Every case is different, and the type of economic recovery that you seek will depend on the impact of your injuries. For example, if you have been disfigured, then you will want to seek compensation for disfigurement. If you have ongoing medical expenses and expect to have medical expenses in the future, then you will ask for compensation for future medical care. Your attorney will help you determine the amount of compensation you should seek based on limits set by the state and insurance company, as well as your injuries and the damages you have suffered.
