    "Thank God we found him. He really seemed to care about our family."
    Mr. Buckingham won our case after two other law firms said it would be impossible to win. He knew the medicine better than the experts in the case. I guess the fact that he’s also a doctor was a great help.
    Former Client
    "He truly was impressive."
    Mr. Buckingham flew to the East Coast several times & understood how a correct gall bladder surgery is supposed to be done better than the surgeon. He was very knowledgeable & precise.
    Former Client
    "If you want real-life heroes contact these guys. They cared when no one else did."
    When I first contacted Mr.Vega, I knew he was different because he listened to me with compassion. Mr. Vega and his team gave me hope and most important they gave my son a better life.
    Former Client
    "Adrian Vega and his law firm changed my family's life."
    They fought for my injured baby and made sure we would be taken care of for the rest of our lives. I highly recommend this law firm.
    Former Client
    "My family is better off having them in our corner."
    We turned to him when we had nowhere else to go. Turns out it was the best decision we could have ever made. They represented us in a difficult case and made those responsible accountable for their actions.
    Former Client
    "Nothing but the best of the best."
    This was an experience I'll never forget and felt like family and not a business associate. Adrian kept me informed and up to date on all matters of the lawsuit. Needless to say, I received more ( much more ) than expected...
    Former Client
    "Very professional firm and well knowledgeable!"
    I would highly recommend using Buckingham & Vega if you have been injured in an accident. Very professional firm and well knowledgeable!
    Former Client
    "Highly Recommend"
    We had a great experience working with Adrian. He was very professional and guided my family through a difficult situation.

Damages You Can Recover For Your Injuries & Losses

At Buckingham & Vega, we put our decades of experience to work, making sure you obtain maximum compensation for all of your losses after a catastrophic injury or wrongful death. These losses are calculated in terms of “damages" and will determine how much compensation you may be eligable to receive.

After evaluating your case, a member of our team will be able to determine the amount and type of damages you are entitled to seek through your personal injury claim. Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury case, you may be entitled to:

Economic Damages

These types of damages refer to the tangible, calculable costs associated with your injury, usually in the form of bills. This may include:

  • Hospital and physician bills
  • Cost of ongoing medical treatments, including medications and physical therapy
  • Medical devices like wheelchairs or prosthetics
  • Cost of therapy to address mental health injuries
  • Home health care aide expenses
  • Home or vehicle accommodations after permanent disability
  • Cost of repairing or replacing a vehicle or other property
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Loss of future income if you’re no longer able to continue your previous employment

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are the very real but less tangible losses associated with a personal injury. These may come in the form of:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Inconvenience
  • Damage to one’s reputation
  • Worsening of a prior injury
  • Loss of consortium or loss of companionship

Punitive Damages

Economic and noneconomic damages are compensatory, as they serve to compensate you for losses. Punitive damages, on the other hand, are intended to punish the other party for their actions. Punitive damages only apply in cases in which your lawyer can prove that the defendant’s actions were grossly negligent or intentionally harmful—for example, in the case of drunk driving or egregious medical malpractice.

While punitive damages are rare compared to compensatory damages, we have the experience to know when they apply. We will seek all damages to the full extent that they are appropriate in your personal injury case. It is our goal to win maximum compensation and secure your financial future after loss.
