if I broke my fibula (ankle) in a car accident that was documented as NOT my fault, how much can I sue extra other than just medical bills, cost of the car, and work compensation? I have a family of 4 and have to be out of work for 6 weeks now. Want to get all monetary value I can for my hardships

Damages in a lawsuit are multi-faceted and include lost wages, pain and suffering, periods of short and long term disability, as well as economic and social losses borne by family members.The how much is usually a rough multiplication of the demonstrable losses and estimation of non-calculable sums based upon recovery time and progress. Some people will heal better than others and will have less or no long-term disability resulting, while others may need permanent ongoing care. You should speak with an attorney about the details of your case.
