Types of Car Accident Compensation

Maryland Auto Accident Attorneys

The value of your car accident claim frequently depends upon the damages you’ve suffered as a result of your accident. At ChasenBoscolo, we’ll take the time to get to know you and your injuries, and we’ll work with you to determine the compensation you’re owed. After we determine a fair settlement value for your claim, we’ll fight the insurance company to get the best possible result.

What types of compensation are available?

  • Medical Treatment
    The costs of hospital stays, prescription medications and physical therapy can add up fast. After you get the medical treatment you need to reach maximum medical improvement—or the point where your condition is stable and the extent of your injuries is known—we’ll help ensure the costs of your past and future medical treatment are included in the value of your claim.
  • Pain and Suffering
    From long surgical recoveries to enduring psychological trauma, severe injuries can have lasting effects on your life. Our Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., car accident lawyers will listen to your story and help you seek fair compensation for your pain and suffering.
  • Loss of Income
    Car accident injuries can affect your ability to do your job. Whether you missed one day of work to see a doctor or you can no longer do the same work you did before your accident, we can fight to ensure the value of your past and future loss of income is factored into your award or settlement.
  • Property Damages or Loss
    Vehicle damage from an accident that wasn’t your fault can make it difficult to get to work and transport your children to school. We can help you get compensation for your damaged or totaled vehicle so you can get moving again.
  • Loss of Consortium
    Car accident victims aren’t the only people affected by severe injuries. When your injuries interfere with your ability to maintain a relationship with your spouse, you may be eligible for loss of consortium compensation.
  • Punitive Damages
    When car crashes are intentional or caused by extreme carelessness or recklessness, victims may be able to seek punitive damages. These damages—which are above and beyond other types of compensation—are intended to punish the person who caused your accident and deter him or her from engaging in similar behavior in the future.

Facing the insurance company alone may cost you thousands—or even tens of thousands—of dollars if you don’t understand your rights to compensation after an accident.
