On Damages

by William Jorden on February 21, 2012

While the law cannot change what happened, the law does provide that upon proof of liability a victim of another’s negligence or intentional act is entitled to an award of money that represents fair compensation for the individual’s damages and loss. The damages that an individual is entitled to receive includes compensation for out of pocket expenses, loss of income or future loss of earnings capacity, all past and future medical expenses, plus compensation for noneconomic losses such as loss of life’s pleasures, pain and suffering, embarrassment and humiliation, disfigurement, etc. It is the focus of the Bill Jorden Litigation Team lawyers to obtain for you the money damages that the law entitles you to. Most often, this involves a contest with a major insurance company or corporation with deep pockets, and many attorneys at their disposal.

DamagesFor over 40 years, we have successfully represented our clients in such contests and have secured, either by settlement or verdict, money to compensate them for their losses and to greatly improve their quality of life. When the lawyers of Bill Jorden Litigation Team agree to undertake a personal injury case, they also agree not to receive a fee or obtain reimbursement of advanced costs until and unless money damages are recovered. This is referred to as a contingency fee. For more information, click here to go to the “Fees / Contingency” section.
