Damages you can seek in a personal injury claim

Suffering an injury in any type of accident (construction, motor vehicle, violent attacks, etc) can change your life forever. You might not be able to return to work or school. You might not be able to care for yourself anymore. You also might need a lot of medical care in order to recover from said injury. Today, we will take a look at the damages you can seek in a personal injury claim.

Any victim of a personal injury accident is entitled to file a claim for lost wages, both current and future. You will need to provide your current employment information, including salary and other data to help determine the amount of money that can be recovered. An estimate of future earnings if you were healthy will be made by your attorney should you not be able to return to work.

Victims of personal injury accidents can also recover damages for their medical expenses. This includes money spent for co-pays, medical transportation, surgeries, medication, equipment and renovating your home for wheelchair access.

Have you encountered a lot of emotional distress caused by the accident? If so, you can also recover damages for pain and suffering. This is a difficult item to claim and recover, but it's not impossible. You will need to show how the accident has affected your daily life, your ability to get back behind the wheel and other emotional issues.

Personal injury claims can help victims of various accidents recover compensation for their injuries. This compensation can be used to pay the monthly bills, cover medical expenses and even help the victim remodel their home to be handicap accessible, if necessary.
