Damages in Car Accident Claims
A car accident doesn’t just have immediate repercussions—the effects of an injury can be far-reaching and long-lasting, particularly when the injury is catastrophic or even life-threatening. Often, victims require extensive, ongoing medical treatment. They may even need in-home care. Many victims are unable to return to work, some in the days and weeks following the accident and others indefinitely. In addition, victims are left struggling with the physical and emotional ramifications of their injuries. This can be particularly difficult when an injury is disabling or causes severe, chronic pain.
In short, car accident victims typically face a number of serious challenges, many of which are financial in nature. The purpose of a car accident claim is to help these victims recover compensation for the new and unexpected costs associated with their injuries.
Depending on the exact circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages:
- Emergency medical attention
- Hospital and ambulance fees
- Surgeries and other treatments
- Medical equipment
- Future medical care costs
- Lost wages
- Future lost earnings
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Counseling services
In some cases, our attorneys may be able to pursue punitive damages in addition to the ones listed above. Punitive damages are awarded when a defendant is found to have acted extremely negligently or with wanton disregard for human life, such as in the case of drunk driving. The purpose of these damages is not only to punish the defendant but also to send a clear message that such actions will not be tolerated.
