Determining the value of a personal injury claim in Atlanta takes into consideration a number of factors. Medical expenses incurred as a result of the injury are a pressing issue for determining the value of a claim.
Some injuries are more expensive to treat than others, while some require ongoing treatment and care. The type of injury also matters on more than just a financial level, as many injuries are permanent and will mean lifelong changes and care.
Sometimes the types of negligence that occurred can have an effect on the value of the claim. In particularly egregious cases of negligence, punitive damages might be assigned as well. For example, a lawsuit involving a DUI or DWI might include punitive damages as a further deterrent to these actions.
