How Much Money Can You Expect to Receive?

No ethical attorney will ever make promises regarding compensation unless they know the case’s facts. However, once your Marcus & Mack Altoona industrial accident lawyer obtains those facts, we’ll tell you exactly what we believe your case is worth and how we’ll work to get it.

Several factors will influence the compensation you receive.

These include:

  • The extent of your injury: The severity of your injury and its long-term implications significantly impact the compensation amount.
  • Lost income: Compensation may include lost income due to time off work, diminished earning capacity, or permanent disability.
  • Medical expenses: Your attorney will also consider medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care costs when calculating the compensation they demand.
  • Degree of liability: Establishing negligence or fault of a third party also plays a crucial role in determining compensation.
  • Pain and suffering: If your accident involved third-party negligence, you can seek compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life.

We’ll investigate the accident to uncover the facts. We know we can defeat the largest corporations and their lawyers with the truth on our side.

Types of Industrial Accidents and Injuries

There are several different types of industrial accidents. These accidents result in a wide range of injuries.

The following is a brief look at some of the most common:

  • Fires and explosions: Chemical explosions, electrical fires, or gas leaks can cause severe burns, respiratory issues, and trauma.
  • Machinery accidents: Crushing injuries, amputations, and fractures are common in heavy machinery accidents.
  • Falls from heights: Falls from ladders, platforms, or roofs can lead to spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), or fractures.
  • Toxic exposure: Exposure to harmful chemicals can cause respiratory problems, skin disorders, or long-term health complications.

Never Try to Fight an Insurance Company Alone

Injured Workers

When someone tries to act as their own attorney and obtain compensation, they almost always fail.

Insurance companies love it when they encounter unrepresented accident victims because they know their chances of successfully denying compensation are nearly 100 percent.

Insurers have several tools they use to deny people the money they deserve. These huge corporations care more about their profit margin than doing the right thing. They’ll do everything they can to pay out as little as possible. It will be even better for them to get away with paying nothing.

Delays are Common

One tactic insurers use is delaying claims as long as possible. They know accident victims and their families will often panic.

Since the victim can’t work, there’s usually no money coming in, and insurers will often prey on that panic to wait out a victim. They might offer a fraction of what the victim deserves because they count on the family’s desperation.

It’s critical you know that if you accept that offer, you’ll forfeit your right to further compensation. Once the money runs out, you’ll be responsible for whatever expenses remain.

However, a Marcus & Mack Altoona industrial accident lawyer will work to avoid this fate. We’ll fight to ensure your settlement reflects the actual value of your case.

Going to Court

If the insurer refuses to offer a fair settlement, we’ll be ready to take them to court. Big corporations and their legal teams don’t scare us. We’ve defeated them for years. The chances are good your case won’t go to trial. But if it does, we’ll be prepared to make a compelling argument on your behalf.
