This will depend largely on the type of case and the damages sustained. Our clients have suffered some type of injury and require medical treatment. Thus, past, current and future medical treatment is recoverable. As are all past and future lost wages. Also recoverable are ‘general damages’, which include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and inconvenience associated with the injury.
In some cases, our clients are entitled to ‘punitive damages’, these are damages which are intended to punish the wrongdoer, when that wrongdoer’s actions were intentional or reckless.
In auto collision cases, our clients are also entitled to recover the damage to their vehicle, as well as the ‘loss of use’ of that vehicle for the time the client was without the use of the vehicle because it was damaged.
Yes. The information you share with us is protected by the attorney-client privilege and will remain confidential. This protection will apply even when our legal representation terminates or if you do not retain our firm. Because your communications with us are privileged, it is important that you make full disclosure of all pertinent facts with respect to your personal injury claim (such as prior injuries) so that we can fully access your case. This is further important so the defense does not catch us by surprise in the middle of representation, which could be detrimental to your case
The value of you claim is based on a consideration of the totality of circumstances. The attorneys at The Bourassa Law Group have successfully negotiated thousands of claims and rely on their vast reserve of knowledge to ensure our clients obtain a maximum recovery.
It is impossible to make generalizations about the value of any case without knowing the details of the harm caused and the manner it was caused. One of the most important jobs that your attorney will conduct is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to detailing all possible losses that will translate into a legal recovery. The law allows recovery for a wide range of situations, many of which may not be readily apparent to the injured party.
No! The Bourassa Law Group never charges for client consultations. All client consultations to discuss a potential claim are absolutely free. If you feel you have a potential claim, please call our office at 702-851-2180 to set up your free consultation and case evaluation
We only work on a contingency fee, meaning that if you do not win, we do not get paid. Injury victims cannot afford to pay an attorney by the hour. Our contingency fee is in line with other top-quality lawyers who handle serious personal injury matters. There are no up front costs or fees with us.
