If you’ve been involved in a personal injury, you are most likely curious about your claim amount. There are rough estimations ($24,000 in 2013) but each situation can vary greatly. We will explore a few different factors that determine your claim amount.

First, there is a loss of income. Let’s say that you could’ve made 200-400 dollars at your job but you weren’t able to work due to your injuries. You could claim that time/money lost due to your accident. Let us also add in bills. If we assume that it cost 1,000 dollars for medical care, you can add that to your claim. Most law firms that specialize in personal injuries, like AKD LAW, will take your sum and multiply it by four.

While calculating potential claims, it’s also essential to understand the legal processes involved. For instance, familiarizing yourself with the intricacies of depositions can be beneficial. AKD LAW offers a wealth of information in their general category, including features on New Orleans living. It’s also crucial to be aware of specific incidents, like common Mardi Gras injuries, or even the more light-hearted crazy Louisiana laws that might surprise you.

Make sure to ask your lawyer what you could make, in a claim that you might have missed. The last thing you want is to lose out on money that you are entitled to.
