Insurance companies are quick to offer settlements to their injured policyholders. However, these offers often fall regrettably short of covering the actual costs of serious accidents. Adjusters will take advantage of people who do not know the value of their injury claim.
Were you hurt in a car crash, bicycle accident, slip and fall, or another tragic event? You may be entitled to compensation for all losses, also known as damages, that you have suffered due to your injury. Damages can be awarded in a negotiated settlement or an injury lawsuit.
Examples of Damages in Personal Injury Cases
Several types of damages are common in personal injury cases, including:
- Medical treatment: You should seek reimbursement for the treatment you have already received and compensation for the estimated cost of future medical care.
- Lost income: An injury can impact your ability to work. You may be entitled to compensation for lost income, lost benefits, and loss of earning capacity moving forward.
- Property loss: Most common in auto accidents, property damage can be reimbursed if any vehicles, clothing, or other items involved in the incident need to be repaired or replaced.
- Pain and suffering: The effects of a serious injury can touch every aspect of your life. It is possible to obtain compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life, among other potential problems associated with your personal injury.
All of the consequences of your injury must be taken into account when seeking compensation. That is why it can be such an overwhelming task to figure out the value of your personal injury claim without professional assistance. Mistakes are easy to make and can be incredibly costly.
