If you have sustained any injuries in an auto accident you’re entitled to recover a fair compensation in a personal injury claim or lawsuit. This compensation includes a variety of auto accident damages you can claim based on physical and financial injuries you’ve suffered. Auto accident damages cover a collection of reimbursements for accident injuries. You can recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages or diminished employment opportunities, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium.
The different types of damages are:
Medical expenses: An auto accident injury may range from a few cuts and bruises to paralysis or permanent disability. It is important to note that some injuries may not show any symptoms soon after the accident. However, it is important to see a doctor immediately after an accident if you sustained any injuries. Some injuries may require additional medical care down the road.
Medical expenses arising from an auto accident may include any of the following:
Lost wages: An auto accident injury may result in losing earning capacity. You may be unable to work due to physical therapy sessions, time spent in the hospital, problems with mobility, or other factors. To recover such damages, you will have to prove that the injury has impaired or diminished your ability to earn money in the future.
Loss of consortium: Loss of consortium damages are those that you receive when an injury affects personal relationships. This means when an injury deprives spouses the ability to show affection, including sexual activity, loss of consortium will be considered. These types of damages are claimed by the uninjured spouse.
