What Kind Of Compensation Can You Earn For Your Car Accident?
When people suffer a serious car accident because of someone else’s reckless or negligent driving habits, they may not pursue a compensation claim because they do not know how much they can get. Personal injury compensation is vital in covering the costs of any injury, which makes it essential for accident victims to secure the funds they need for their injuries.
At Warhawk Legal, our lawyers know the hardships of recovering from a serious accident, and we know how important fair compensation can be. We can help you pursue fair and full compensation by maximizing the two types of compensation you can receive.
Your Definitive Costs
The first of the two types of compensation you can pursue is “economic damages.” These damages refer to any financial loss that comes from your injuries. Common examples of this type of expense include:
- Lost income during the recovery process
- All medical care expenses
- Property damage replacement or repair
- The cost of modifying your home to accommodate your injuries
- Loss of earning capacity
These costs are relatively easy to pursue, as there are often documents to prove the exact expenses of your injuries. We can help you compile these documents while we build your case for fair compensation.
While it is easy to put a price on many aspects of your personal injury, not everything has a simple price tag. “Noneconomic losses” refer to the pain and suffering, and other losses that a victim may have experienced. These losses are commonly tied to the emotional experience of recovering from the accident and regularly include:
- Current and future pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Scarring or burns
- Permanent limited mobility
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
When an accident causes you to suffer extreme amounts of emotional difficulties, the liable party should also compensate you for that suffering. Just because you cannot put a price tag on trauma does not mean that the liable person needs to answer for it.
