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
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

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

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:
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 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
- Damage to one’s reputation
- Worsening of a prior injury
- Loss of consortium or loss of companionship
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.
