If you or someone you love was involved in an accident caused by the actions of another, we may be able to help you understand the extent to which you have been wronged, assist in calculating the level of compensation you deserve, and lead the charge towards securing compensation on your behalf.

Sometimes called "special damages,” this category of compensation covers the quantifiable monetary costs and losses you sustained as a result of your accident.
Some of the most common economic damages involve:
- Medical bills
- Damaged property
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning potential
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of irreplaceable items
Sometimes called "general damages,” this type of compensation covers types of suffering that do not have objective costs, but can still be awarded a subjective value instead.
Noneconomic damages can be granted for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma or distress
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of reputation
- Physical or mental impairment
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Punitive damages are used to punish the at-fault party for the actions they took to cause you harm. They also serve to deter similar bad behavior from the negligent party in the future. Punitive damages may be appropriate in cases of severe negligence and extensive suffering, as is often the case in drunk driving accidents.
