Compensation for Your Damages

If you’ve suffered damages in a car accident caused by another – or if your loved one has been injured in an accident – you may be eligible to recover monetary compensation. The value of your claim will depend on a number of unique circumstances and will vary from case to case. Generally, however, courts will award compensation to cover the following:

  • Economic Damages – any measurable financial damages that resulted directly from an accident. Examples include past and future medical expenses and lost work wages and future earnings. In cases where a car accident caused wrongful death, families may be eligible to recover lost financial support and funeral expenses, among other damages
  • Non-Economic Damages – non-measurable damages that may include emotional injuries such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of quality of life, and loss of companionship, among others.

In order to recover their losses, injured victims must be able to demonstrate that another’s negligence or misconduct caused their accident. You can learn more about the legal elements required to prove liability in a car accident on our blog.

As proving such a standard can be difficult – especially when insurance providers do all that they can to minimize victims’ claims – you need experienced lawyers who are ready to fight on your behalf.
