Personal injury matters, no matter how, where, or why you were injured, can be very difficult to navigate, especially if you don't have an attorney to guide you through the process. Your attorney should be able to provide you with their undivided attention. Steven Gonzales is a self-claimed perfectionist, so you won't have to worry about any crucial details being missed that can help you receive compensation.
Depending on your injury and the situation, you can receive a variety of different types of compensation for your pain and suffering. There are, however, some basic categories of compensation that Steven could help you earn: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are tangible, easy-to-measure damages that you can earn back. In other words, if you have a receipt or bill for it, it's most likely in this category. Economic damages can include property damage, medical or hospital bills, time spent away from work as you heal, and more.
This form of compensation can be a little more difficult to receive as it's not as tangible to prove. These include emotional or mental suffering, or even a loss of companionship if your partner has been killed as a result of negligence or carelessness.
