Recoverable Damages in a Car Accident
There are many forms of recoverable damages in a car accident from pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, disability, and more.
After a car accident, it’s not just your car that has been injured. It’s not just you that has been injured. There are a multitude of damages that come along with a very serious car crash. There is property damage that includes the damage to your car, or your truck, or your vehicle. That needs to be paid for by the other driver’s insurance. Then you come to the damages that you have suffered. Typically, you will get what we all know as pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is how badly you were hurt, what you have to go through to get your medical treatment, to go to all those doctor appointments, or if you have surgery. Then, in addition to that, there is how much time you have lost from work. You’re entitled to get repaid all of the money that you lost from not being able to go to work. If you’ve had out-of-pocket expenses for your medical care, whether it’s co-pays on prescriptions, co-pays on doctor appointments, co-pays for the hospital, co-pays for your surgery, whatever it is, you’re entitled to get reimbursed for that.
In addition, you are entitled to be paid for all of the damages that you are going to suffer into the future. If you’ve been seriously injured, it’s very likely that you are going to have pain, discomfort, disabilities that can go on for the rest of your life. You may have income loss or a loss of earning capacity that will go on into the future. You are entitled to recover all of that. You’re also entitled to get pain, suffering, inconvenience, disfigurement, disability, etc., into the future. There are many facets to this. Oftentimes, people do not know all of the areas that they are entitled to compensation for or they just want to get a quick and easy resolution of it.
If you’ve been seriously injured, it is absolutely critical that you talk to a personal injury attorney who has years of experience to make sure that your case is properly evaluated and valued by the insurance company. If the insurance company is not going to step up to the plate, you need to have an attorney who is a trial lawyer, who will file a lawsuit and hold the insurance company to their responsibility to you, even if it means taking your case to trial.
