Damages you may be able to claim for car accident injuries

In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, there's nothing more important than receiving medical treatment and working with your doctor to make a full recovery.

As time allows, you should also learn more about the cause of the accident, which includes who was at fault. This will put you in a position to seek compensation from the negligent party.

You can seek many types of damages for car accident injuries, including but not necessarily limited to:

  • Medical expenses: This category takes on many forms, including doctor bills, consultations with health care professionals, ambulance fees, therapy, disfigurement, permanent disability, medical accessories and in-home services.
  • Pain and suffering: This includes any physical or mental distress related to the car accident. For example, you may experience future pain as a result of serious injuries.
  • Lost wages: After a car accident, you may find it difficult to earn a living. If you lose earning capacity, such as the result of a physical disability or time spent in a hospital, you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages.
  • Loss of affection: Your injuries may make it difficult, or impossible, to show affection to your partner, such as through sexual activity.

Even though you have a lot on your plate, it's critical to understand your legal rights and the types of damages you can claim for your injuries.

Once you're able to do so, file an insurance claim, collect evidence and documentation pertaining to the accident and your losses and learn more about the steps you can take to hold the negligent party responsible.
