Damages You Could Recover in a Personal Injury Case

A personal lawsuit is a civil claim with two main purposes. First, a personal injury claim seeks to hold the liable party accountable for the harm caused by the party's wrongful or careless actions. Second, a personal injury lawsuit is a way to seek financial compensation for the damages caused in the accident. Whether the injury takes place at work, on the road, or on someone else's property, a serious injury can have significant financial implications. The injured person may require hospital care, occupational therapy, surgery, and other medical treatments. He or she may be out of work for weeks or months during his or her recovery. Through a personal injury claim, you may be compensated for these financial losses.

A personal injury lawsuit may allow you to recover the cost of:

  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Medical expenses
  • Vehicle damage or other property damage
  • Any harm your injuries caused to your earning potential
  • Out-of-pocket expenses like transportation costs to the doctor's office
  • The value of the services that the injured person cannot perform such as household chores and childcare
  • Financial losses caused by the wrongful death of a family member including lost financial support, funeral expenses, and more.

Additionally, you may be entitled to compensation for the non-financial consequences you experienced. You could receive compensation for your:

  • Physical pain
  • Suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
