WHAT DAMAGES CAN BE RECOVERED IN A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?
Every situation is unique and, therefore, the damages that you may be able to recover after an accident can vary quite drastically. That being said, many people who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence find that they are entitled to compensation for certain damages. This compensation is meant to help unfairly injured victims obtain the treatment they need to move forward from the accident, free from undue financial strain.
In most cases, victims of negligence are able to recover damages for some or all of the following:
Cost of medical treatment, both current and future
Fees incurred from ambulance rides and/or hospital stays
Lost income/wages from time taken off work to obtain treatment
Physical pain and emotional/mental distress and suffering
Ongoing medical care, including physical rehabilitation therapy
Loss of enjoyment or decreased quality of life
Furthermore, if your loved one was killed as a result of another person, company, or entity’s negligent actions, you may be able to recover damages such as medical treatment, funeral costs, loss of companionship, and more.
