After suffering an injury due to the actions and negligence of another person, driver or entity, accident injury victims deserve results and compensation for their losses. When you or a loved one has suffered harmful injuries due to an accident caused someone else, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit and recover damages.

Personal Injury Damages

Depending on the type of accident, there are several different types of damages that an injured victim can seek resolutions for when filing a claim. Some of the most common types of damages our team has recovered for clients with different injuries include: medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, missed opportunities, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.

Medical Expenses

After a serious injury has occurred, medical bills can quickly pile up. Compensation for medical damages can include recovery of current and future medical care, any visit to the doctor’s office, medical devices and physical therapy needed for rehabilitation, prescriptions, surgical procedures, time spent in the hospital and transportation expenses to and from medical facilities.

Property Damage

Auto accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury lawsuits in the country. When a car collides with another vehicle, it is very rare that the cars involved do not experience any sort of property damage. By seeking property damage losses, you may be able to recover the repair bills you incurred when fixing the damage experienced.

Lost Wages

Oftentimes, a serious injury can leave a victim incapable of working for an indeterminate amount of time. Depending on the severity of the injury, the victim can be unable to work for weeks, months or even permanently. In less severe circumstances, an injury victim may have to take time off from work to visit the doctor, undergo medical treatments or to rehabilitate. Additionally, if you were injured while on the job, you may be able to pursue workers’ compensation benefits. If your injury forced you to miss time from work, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit for lost wages.

Pain and Suffering

Each individual has a different tolerance for pain, and some types of injuries may cause a greater deal of pain and suffering than other types. In order to quantify pain and suffering damages, your attorney will consider the following:

  • How much medication is required.
  • How the victim’s quality of life has changed.
  • How long the recovery period is.
  • The types of treatments necessary, including the duration of time needed for treatment.

Missed Opportunity

Not to be confused with lost wages, missed opportunity damages refers to when an injury prevents the victim from participating in a business opportunity. Missed opportunity and lost wages claims often do go hand in hand, however. With these types of damages, it is crucial that an injury victim has documentation proving their case as these claims can be difficult to prove.

Emotional Trauma and Mental Anguish

Emotional trauma and mental anguish are typically responses to a traumatic experience. If you experience anxiety, confusion, terror, apprehension, shock, isolation or other symptoms after being injured, you may have cause to pursue these types of damages. Emotional turmoil is harder to quantify than most other types of damages, so it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney if you want to file this type of claim.
