What Compensatory Damages Can I Seek in a Personal Injury Case?

Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the victim for their losses associated with their injuries. In seeking compensation, the following are some losses associated with personal injury claims:

Physical pain and suffering

In addition to medical treatment, you are also entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced. Such factors include the type of injury and the length or permanence of the injury.

Medical expenses

When you are injured in an accident, you more than likely will need medical treatment, and depending on the severity of your injuries, the cost of your medical care can be high, and you are entitled to reimbursement for your injuries.

Loss of income

Injuries at no fault of your own will affect many aspects of your life, including your work. If you are injured and miss work or cannot work due to your injuries, you are entitled to financial compensation for the loss of your income, including past loss of income and anticipated future loss of income.

Loss of consortium

If you are married, your spouse may be able to recover loss of consortium damages if you are no longer able to provide the same level of companionship. This type of loss is usually associated with severe injuries or wrongful death.

Loss of enjoyment of life

Physical or emotional injuries can cause a victim’s entire life to change, including their quality of life. If a person is unable to participate in activities or pleasures that were once part of their lives, they are entitled to seek compensation for this loss.

No one can ever fully prepare for being injured in a car accident, on the street, or even being injured on the job. Often, injuries sustained due to another party will leave the victim unable to accomplish daily activities, creating more stressful burdens other than just injuries. Contact the personal injury lawyers at Lever & Ecker, PLLC and let them help you seek the compensation you deserve.
