There's a serious motor vehicle accident on an Atlanta highway. One party is at fault. The other party is seriously injured. The victim is looking at medical expenses and property damages- significant expenses, no doubt.
Is that where the cost of a personal injury ends?
Sadly, no. As our personal injury lawyers are well aware, there are numerous unseen costs associated with a significant injury. And this is just talking about concrete financial expenses, not pain and suffering.

A Lingering Incident
Obviously, medical expenses and property damage are absolutely crucial elements of compensation in a personal injury case. You don't deserve to pay for someone else's mistake.
But at Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, PC, we take a longer view. We understand that the financial effects of a devastating accident are long-term in nature, and we pursue compensation with that reality in mind.
Think about a catastrophic personal injury, the sort of condition that affects you for the rest of your life. You have the immediate cost of treating the injury, sure, but what about wages you lost because you had to miss work to undergo that treatment?
And what about your long-term earning potential? A catastrophic personal injury can negatively affect your range of motion, your strength, your agility, your personality, your intellect and your memory. If these things suffered, wouldn't your job performance? Would you be able to keep your current job? Would you lose out on promotions or higher-paying positions? Would you have to stop working entirely.
This is what we mean when we talk about the "unseen costs" of a personal injury. Covering your medical expenses is crucial, yes, but it doesn't leave you in a sound financial position if it's not paired with an aggressive pursuit of compensation for your long-term damages.
We know this. We understand it. And that understanding informs our passionate, skilled legal representation.
