What Is Your Personal Injury Accident Worth?
Get Straight Answers From An Attorney You Can Trust
If you've been hurt in a personal injury accident due to someone else's actions, odds are you're eligible to receive compensation. But how much can you receive? And what expenses can you be reimbursed for? Medical bills? Lost income? Or perhaps even more?
Our personal injury lawyers hear questions like these all the time at the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone in Massachusetts and the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone & Morelli in Connecticut. That's why we want to help. We know how confusing accidents can be for people. That's because we've dedicated our careers to helping injury victims get the compensation they deserve.
Even if someone else clearly caused your accident, don't simply assume that you automatically receive compensation for your injuries. Many injury victims face numerous obstacles when they try to get the money they deserve - uncooperative insurance companies, forgetful witnesses and, most of all, people who falsely claim they did nothing to cause your injuries.

The value of your accident depends on many different factors, including:
- Type of injury
- Severity of injury
- How long you suffered
Other issues that can influence your ability to obtain compensation for your accident include:
- Liability - If an insurance company, judge or jury decides you did something to cause your accident, you may receive less money since you were found to be partially liable (at fault) for causing your accident. That's why you need an attorney who can thoroughly present your side of the story to prove that the other party was at fault.
- Witness testimony - A witness who testifies on your behalf can greatly affect the outcome of your case. Ideally, a witness should be able to describe in detail the events of your accident, proving that you didn't do anything to cause your injury. We have extensive experience finding the right witness testimony to protect our clients' rights.
- Jury appeal - Juries can be very unpredic What might seem like an open and shut case can turn out to be much more complicated depending on the jury. We know how juries think. We know how to present evidence to a jury in a positive light.
"What can I receive compensation for after my accident?"
People injured in an accident caused by someone else's actions often can receive compensation for a variety of expenses, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Physical therapy
- Reconstructive surgery
- Pain and suffering
If your accident resulted in a permanent disability, you may be eligible to receive significantly more compensation because you have sustained a loss that lasts a lifetime. You may be eligible for compensation for:
- Medical equipment (wheelchairs, hearing aids, glass eyes, etc.)
- Home and vehicle modifications (wheelchair ramps, lower countertops, etc.)
- Home health care assistance
Insurance companies often do everything they can to deny or reduce your claim. That's why it's critical that you contact us immediately if you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident. It's also important to remember that most personal injury cases are covered by a statute of limitations, which means you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit.
