What Kind of Damages can I Claim in a Personal Injury Case?

When the negligence of another person or company causes you injuries, there are many elements to this injury. Of course, there is the injury itself, which alone can cause months to a life time of effects. The impact of an injury to a person is individual to that person, however, most personal injury cases involve:

  • Impact from the Injury Itself
  • Medical Bills
  • Co-pays and Deductibles
  • Lost Wages
  • Inconvenience
  • Pain and suffering.

We help itemize these damages and make sure they are all part of your claim.

Property Damage

Why is the amount of Property Damage an Issue in My Case?

When the property damage to the vehicles involved in the collision are not as visible or minimal in repair cost, insurance adjusters often inform clients that the collision couldn’t have caused any injuries. This push-off is commonly used when someone sustains whip-lash or soft tissue injuries.

In our experience, most reasonable doctors will admit that even an accident where the property damage is minimal can cause injuries to a person. If you think about a car accident and the way the body moves when the vehicle is struck, this makes sense. Whiplash injuries occur when the head moves backwards and forwards in relation to the body, which is secured by a seat belt.

Case Value

There are many factors that impact the value of the recovery for a car accident. A short list of those factors would include the nature of the injury, the severity of the collision, the extent of the medical treatment, the amount of the medical bills, the recovery made by the injured person, the amount of lost wages, the statements of witnesses, the subrogation interests of any health insurance companies, the location of the accident and the available insurance. Each factor listed has a seemingly endless number of rationales that explain its relationship to the value of the case. An experienced car accident lawyer will help you reach a reasonable and fair settlement for the recovery from a car accident.
