Automobile accident injuries can severely impact your life, especially if you’re hurt badly and are unable to work. Damages can range from economic losses to emotional distress to physical pain. Here are the damages from an automobile accident that you can receive compensation for.
Many auto accident victims seek medical attention after the accident. Many times, this means going to the emergency room. But, if you or someone you represent is taken to an emergency room for a non-emergency condition, the medical bills will be deducted from your compensation.
Your employer may or may not have paid you for time lost after your car accident injury occurred during the recovery period. If they did not, that amount would also need to be deducted from your car accident compensation amount. A lawyer, like one at Cormany Law, can assist you with navigating this issue.
Pain and Suffering
The emotional and physical pain you may suffer after a car accident injury can last for many years. The longer the pain lasts, the more your compensation will add up on your behalf. This is one reason to seek compensation for a car accident injury as early as possible.
Facing the reality that you may never be able to work again can be mentally unbearable for you and your family. If you have experienced this type of anguish, your compensation amount will also add up on behalf of your loved ones.
If your loved one has died in an automobile accident, you can seek compensation for their wrongful death. If a drunk driver causes their death, the drunk driver may be held responsible for your losses. We can help you with this type of claim.
Lost Income from Loved One’s Future Earnings
The financial and emotional impact of losing a loved one is difficult to comprehend when we only think about what was lost in terms of money. Your loved one’s future earnings can also be significant when considering future retirement benefits.
There are times when an automobile accident is intentional and malicious. A motorist that causes a car accident because of reckless behavior or another form of aggression can face punitive damages in a civil court. We can help you with this type of claim as well.
In conclusion, you may be able to seek compensation for damages experienced from an automobile accident. It is important to consider all the possibilities when you are injured in a car accident, including medical bills, lost income, and mental anguish. No matter how badly you are hurt, you can seek compensation.
