When Should I Contact an Attorney About My Case?
As soon as possible. We understand your case may have taken place a while ago and you have just now decided to come forward. It is ok, the sooner you contact an attorney the better. Each case is unique so might be a limit on the amount of time you have to make a civil case.
What Kinds of Damages Can be Awarded?
The kinds of damages that can be awarded fall into two categories, economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are tangible costs incurred by the victim that include things like medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and a loss of earnings potential.
These include things that are hard to measure. An example is punitive damages which are designed to punish the victim and anyone responsible so that it does not happen again.
