Why Hire Our Hobbs Personal Injury Attorney From Stout & Stout Lawyers?
After an injury, victims often don’t know where to turn for help. In addition to seeking medical treatment, they often experience significant financial pressures from lost wages.

They may try to get a recorded statement that reduces their insured’s liability or offer a settlement before you fully understand the extent of your injuries and how they may affect your life.
At Stout & Stout Lawyers, we can help. Our attorneys can protect your best interests, document the extent of your injuries, properly estimate your damages, and fight to ensure you recover the compensation you need and are entitled to.

Types of Compensation You May Be Eligible For
There are 3 types of compensation that you may be eligible for from your Hobbs personal injury case. They are:
Economic Damages – Economic damages refer to those financial losses suffered as a result of your injury. These can be things like medical bills, lost wages, lost potential to earn, travel expenses, and legal expenses. Things like medical bills, receipts, and pay stubs can be used as evidence to recover damages in your case.
Non-Economic Damages – Noneconomic damages refer to non-financial damages that were suffered. These are things related to the injury that are less tangible, such as ongoing pain and suffering, emotional or mental anguish, and loss of relationships. These damages are more difficult to prove than economic damages, but testimony from experts and keeping an injury journal can be beneficial to recovery.
Punitive Damages – Punitive damages are a type of compensation given to victims by the courts as a way to punish the at-fault party in cases of recklessness and negligence. These damages are more rare as they are awarded by the court based on a determination of the intent of the at-fault party.
