Belvidere Personal Injury Lawyers

Accidents happen every day, but we are often largely unprepared for them. Whether you suffer a car crash, slip and fall accident, sports injury, dog bite, nursing home abuse, or other incident, you could get seriously injured. Some people suffer permanent disabilities or even death from these accidents.

Personal injuries can result in significant costs, as medical treatment can result in exorbitant bills. There are many other expenses you may have to deal with as well. You may be struggling financially. How do you get the compensation you deserve? The experienced Belvidere personal injury lawyers at Clark Frost Zucchi can assist you with your case and guide you through the process of physical and financial recovery.

Damages in a Personal Injury Case

Personal injury cases may result in a lot of damages. Damages refer to the remedy that an accident victim requests from the negligent party so that they can make themselves whole again. Being made whole refers to being back in the condition that the victim was in before the accident. Sometimes, a person is so badly injured that they cannot be made whole again. In these cases, the victim may be awarded millions of dollars.

Damages are classified into two categories: economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to monetary losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, property damage, lost business opportunities, and lost services. These damages are easy to calculate based on medical bills, paystubs, and out-of-pocket costs.

Non-economic damages are harder to quantify since they are not monetary in nature. Instead, they are emotional in nature and may include distress, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment of life. These damages are subjective, so it’s hard to come up with an appropriate value. The amounts awarded are often dependent on how sympathetic the jury is when the case goes to trial. In extreme cases, non-economic damages may total millions of dollars.

In some cases, a third type of damage may apply. In especially egregious, malicious, intentional, or reckless cases of negligence, the jury may award punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded to the victim and are paid by the negligent party as a form of punishment. The goal is to deter the party from acting in a similar manner in the future. The amount of punitive damages may be based on the other damages involved.

I was quite satisfied with the dedicated work of Kevin Frost last year. I was certain I had been wronged during a medical procedure. Seeking counsel, Mr. Frost approached my case as if it was his own. He quickly researched the facts of my voluminous case, sought the assistance of a doctor knowledgeable in this area of medicine and responded with impressive speed. Even though my case was not applicable to an injury matter, I was given a great peace of mind in knowing Mr. Frost’s diligent legal opinion was solid as a rock and explained to me in proper...
