Car accidents may leave victims with catastrophic injuries that make it difficult to return to work or earn an income. Additionally, injuries sustained during the accident may require costly medical treatment and rehabilitation. In light of this, many car accident victims seek compensation against the negligent party in order to pay for these sudden expenses. Get the facts on the various types of compensation you may seek in the aftermath of a car accident.
Types of Damages for Car Crash Injuries
Depending on your unique situation, there are several different types of damages you may seek for injuries sustained in a car accident.
Many car accident victims sustain catastrophic injuries including broken bones, burns, paralysis, and more that make it near impossible for them to support themselves financially. Medical expenses arising from a car crash may include the following:
Physical or cognitive therapy
Medical accessories including crutches or a wheelchair
Car accident victims may seek damages against the negligent party to pay for these and additional medical expenses.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is defined as “mental or physical distress.” Car accident victims may seek damages for pain and suffering if they experience a general loss of enjoyment for life, due to either physical or mental symptoms.
Car accident victims may be able to sue the negligent party for lost wages if their injuries prevent them from returning to work or supporting themselves financially. Damages may be collected for past and future lost wages.
