Compensation for Workplace and Other Accidents Leading to Disability

Becoming disabled due to an accident caused by the negligence of another can have an extremely deleterious impact on almost every aspect of your life. You may no longer be able to perform the work you used to. You may need significant healthcare services for the rest of your life. Doing the things you used to enjoy may no longer be possible. When a person who worked to support themselves or their family is forced out of their career path due to lasting injuries, finances can become a pressing issue. Between lost income and piling medical bills, the situation can become insurmountable without recovering the compensation you need.

At Hutchison & Foreman, PLLC, we fight for people who have been left disabled due to a workplace injury or another type of injury loss caused by a negligent party. Our goal is to see you left in the same financial position you would have been in had the accident never happened. The compensation awards in these types of cases are often significant, as they are designed to replace the income you are no longer able to earn in addition to compensating you for many other types of personal and financial damages. We will do all we can to ensure that you will have the finances you need going forward.

Compensation for Lost Future Income

Having a disabling personal injury can make it impossible to continue working, at least in the capacity you were able to work before you got hurt. It is not your fault that your career was interrupted by the party who caused your accident through careless behavior, and you should not be the one to suffer financially as a result.

If you are totally disabled and cannot work in any capacity, you may be able to obtain compensation that will cover every dollar you would have earned for the rest of your life. If you are partially disabled and can still perform some types of work for pay, but will earn less than you would have had the accident not interrupted your career goals, then you may be entitled to compensation to make up the difference between your pre-accident lifetime earnings and your post-accident lifetime earnings.

As you can see, the compensation available to you may be quite substantial depending on the circumstances. However, recovering these damages may take the skill of an experienced lawyer. Our attorneys are highly experienced in assisting people who are facing lasting disability after an accident, and we will fight for you too.

Other Compensation Available After a Disabling Accident

Rarely is Workers' Compensation alone enough to provide adequate compensation for the damage that has been done, even if your employer subscribes. Pursuing a claim against a third party is often a strong legal strategy in these cases.

Other expenses and fiscal losses you may be able to be compensated for include:

  • Medical costs - The totality of your medical expenses related to the accident may be compensable. This can include future healthcare costs in cases where ongoing care is needed.
  • Pain and emotional harm - Being forced out of your career and into an unwanted early retirement or lower-paid job can deal you a significant psychological blow. Your injuries themselves may have caused you severe pain that may linger for years or a lifetime. By pursuing a nonsubscriber claim or civil lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation designed to be restitution for your noneconomic damages.

Additional forms of compensation may also be available depending on the nature of your accident and who your claim is against. Car accident victims, for example, may see a different legal process and different forms of compensation than someone pursuing a claim against an employer.
