Settlements and Compensation
Personal Injury Attorneys Helping Accident Victims Nationwide
Sometimes, we can secure a settlement offer prior to your case even going
to trial. Frequently operators or their insurance companies just want
a potential lawsuit and all the bad publicity to disappear.
But that often starts with an inadequate settlement offer that fails to
compensate the victim properly for all damages. We know the
difference. And if settlement negotiations fail,
The Doan Law Firm has the experience, resources and capabilities to fully investigate your
accident and hold the responsible party accountable.
The criteria used to establish your due settlement amount is first based
on economic damages – that is, compensation of medical expenses
that are a result of the
amusement park injury. These expenses include past, present and future medical and rehabilitation
expenses, lost wage compensation while undergoing treatment, and any reduction
in wages that are a result of the injury.
The second area of damage settlement is non-economic damages. This definition
awards victims for pain and suffering, with the principle of compensation
for both mental anguish and physical pain caused directly by the accident
– that is, financial compensation for any permanent scars the injury
may have left them with.
The third and final point The Doan Law Firm will consider is punitive damages,
which are assessed to conduct that’s considered particularly reckless
or negligent. These damages go above and beyond what scars may linger
and what expenses were incurred by the victim. The damages seek, primarily,
to punish the operator or owner for not using good judgment in operating
the amusement park or a specific ride in the first place.
To assist you in your claim, The Doan Law Firm employs lawyers with decades
of experience with amusement park injury lawsuit experience.
