What Kinds of Personal Injury Damages Can You Sue For?

In a lawsuit or out-of-court settlement, our experienced personal injury attorneys pursue every last dollar our clients need and deserve. As the victim of an injury caused by someone else’s negligence, your sense of frustration at the injustice of it all may be significant. We understand and we have witnessed just how devastating these situations can be. Let us do the heavy lifting when it comes to pursuing compensation, so that you can focus on your recovery and getting better.

In the event of a successful monetary award, compensation damages may include:

Medical expenses. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may be facing present and future medical costs. These expenses can be significant. You may also require assistive equipment, in-home care, transportation accommodations, or other lifestyle changes in order to live with your injury. Medical expense damages should cover all of these things.

Loss of income. Any wages lost or unpaid as a result of your injury ought to be fully replaced by compensatory damages. Lost wages caused by the injury are a typical target of a lawsuit or settlement.

Pain and suffering. The catastrophic injuries that are commonly associated with these injuries often involve excruciating discomfort. Pain can be all-encompassing. You may suffer each day with the physical discomfort of your injury. This too deserves just compensation.

Emotional distress. The impact of a catastrophic personal injury isn’t only physical. You may suffer trauma, anxiety, depression, and other emotional/mental issues as a result of this type of injury. And you deserve to be compensated for it.
