The attorney at Robert A Rivers, a Norcross, GA law firm, will carefully evaluate your case to determine the amount of compensation that will be pursued in your case. These include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are the actual hard costs that were incurred due to the accident, including medical and hospital bills, rehabilitation, and loss of income, both now and in the future. Non-economic damages are those that affect you as an individual such as pain and suffering or others, based upon the impact on your life. Serious injuries such as brain damage, spinal cord injuries, permanent scarring, loss of limb or others will naturally be very high value; the victim's life is permanently affected by the negligent act.
