What Types of Loss Can You Seek Compensation for in a Personal Injury Case?
Whether you have been injured by another driver in a car accident or due to any other sort of personal injury involving intent or negligence, you can seek compensation. What losses can you recover in a suit? Here are four types:
- Medical bills – If you amass medical bills due to the injury, the person who is at fault is responsible for the medical bills.
- Lost wages – If you are no longer able to work or even if you just missed a few days of work due to your injuries, you can receive compensation for the wages that you lost or will lose in the future.
- Property damage – If any of your personal property was damaged in the incident (e.g. your vehicle), you can receive compensation for repairs or replacement.
- Pain and suffering – Sometimes you can’t quantify all of the damages in the realm of things that you lost. There may also be emotional trauma or serious inconvenience that resulted from the accident that did not cost you a specific amount of money. While it can be difficult to put a number on the pain and suffering caused by an injury, this will normally be the largest part of a settlement.
