As the final installment of our three-part blog Personal Injury Lawsuits: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), here are some more questions that commonly come up when prospective plaintiffs want to learn more about the process of obtaining compensation.
For more specific answers regarding your rights and case, call or email the Littleton personal injury lawyers at Bahr and Kreidle.
Q: Should I see a doctor?
A: Yes! Don’t wait for compensation from your case before you see a doctor. In fact, victims are typically advised to see a doctor as soon as possible after an incident or accident to get an official diagnosis of the injury and to start receiving any treatments they may need. Personal injury settlements will most likely compensate victims for these bills, as well as the costs of future treatments they may need as part of their recovery.
Q: What will a personal injury settlement cover?
A: In addition to doctors’ bills and future treatment costs, personal injury settlements can also provide compensation for:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- A future inability to work
- Mental suffering
- Other losses sustained as a result of the incident, accident or injury.
The goal of personal injury settlements is to provide compensation for all of a person’s losses and injuries sustained due to the injury; in some cases, these settlements may also include punitive damages (which are intended to punish the negligent party for its recklessness). For a more precise estimate of potential compensation in your case, contact Bahr and Kreidle.

- Police reports
- Doctors’ reports and bills
- Photographic evidence
- Insurance documents or communications
- Witness names and contact information
