Attorney Portrait

Fob James Law Firm, LLC., is open and ready to help with your personal injury claim.

The law says that if you are not at fault for your injuries, you don’t have to bear the financial burden for the injury’s damages. After all, you are not at fault for the injury so why should you have to pay for the consequences? 

Unfortunately, our Valley, Alabama personal injury lawyer team sees the unjust happen all too often. Someone gets hurt by someone else’s actions, but the injured person decides against seeking damages.

In the end, the injured party is forced to deal with the pain of the injury and shoulder the burden of all the associated costs. Those costs add up quickly, and this outcome is just plain wrong.

We believe in upholding the law. A big part of upholding the law is enforcing your rights. Our Valley, AL injury lawyers can help you enforce those rights, but they can only do that if you take the first step.

Read a bit more about what we do at Fob James Law Firm, LLC., then take that first step and give us a call.

Can I Estimate My Settlement’s Worth?

It is extremely difficult to estimate your injury claim’s value without the help of an attorney. That’s because some damage types are hard to place a value on.

We will get into those types of damages, but first, we should talk about what you can do: calculate the value of your economic damages.

Economic damages are tangible damages that have a precise dollar value. Property repair costs, lost wages and benefits, and medical bills are all common examples of economic damages.

Because economic damages are tangible with an identifiable dollar value, you can usually calculate their total value yourself. First, you need to take into account all of the damages you suffered.

Basically, that’s any bill that you have to pay or money you lost due to the injury. Once you take note of all of them, just add up the associated bills, invoices, or receipts.

Now you have a good idea of how much your economic damages are worth. 

Other Damages

Other types of damages that you can include in your personal injury claim are called non-economic damages.

Non-economic damages are less tangible than economic ones and lack a precise dollar value. These include things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, or the loss of bodily function.

For example, if you lost your leg due to an accident, you can recover non-economic damages associated with the burdens and difficulties of living with a missing leg.

Non-economic damages are hard to place a value on for those that don’t work with them regularly. Fortunately, our Valley, AL injury lawyers help injured parties recover non-economic damages every day and know how to estimate their value.

In limited circumstances, you can also recover punitive damages. These are damages meant to punish and deter the offending party from doing the same thing again.

In Alabama, you must show clear and convincing evidence of malice, coercion, or purpose to successfully claim punitive damages.

Our AL, Valley injury lawyers can help you determine whether or not non-economic damages apply to your case.
