Types of Damages Recoverable in a Personal Injury Case

If you have been involved in a personal injury matter, you may be wondering what types of damages you can potentially recover.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are monetary expenses incurred due to an injury. These types of damages are unique to each case and each individual involved. Therefore, economic damages vary greatly from case to case. Some of the most common economic damages include:

Loss of earnings

If a plaintiff is not able to work due to their injuries or treatment for their injuries, then they may be awarded compensation for their time that they missed work.

Loss of future earnings

If the plaintiff is no longer able to work due to permanent injuries, then they may receive compensation for the loss of their future earnings that they would have earned had they not been injured.

Past, present, and future medical bills

When a plaintiff is injured, they must undergo medical exams, appointments, treatments, and much more throughout their recovery. Therefore, if they have had to do so, they may be awarded compensation for past, present, and future medical bills, which have results from the accident.

Property damage

When an accident occurs, the plaintiff may be entitled to compensation for property damage, which includes damage to your vehicle, personal belongings, and more.

Pain and suffering

Pain and suffering includes physical pain caused by the accident, physical discomfort resulting from treatment, mental anguish, fatigue, anxiety and other psychological effects of the accident.

Mental anguish

When an accident impacts the plaintiff's mental health, then a claim for emotional distress may be possible. Typically, this type of damage is proven through diagnosis and/or treatment by a medical provider.

Loss of consortium or companionship

In a wrongful death claim, loss of consortium, companionship, as well as many other losses may be recoverable.

Wrongful Death Damages

Funeral and burial expenses

Medical expenses prior to the victim’s death

Emotional distress of surviving family and loved ones
