Typical Damages in Personal Injury Lawsuits
Economic damages that are typically sought in personal injury lawsuits include:
- All related medical and rehabilitation expenses
- Current and projected future lost wages
- Home modifications
- Adaptive technologies
- Any expense related to or exacerbated by your accident
These damages may be covered in part by insurance companies. However, insurance seldom provides full coverage and will not cover additional damages such as:
- Changes to lifestyle
- Impact on family, social, and work abilities
- Physical pain
- Emotional trauma
These damages are only considered when you file a personal injury lawsuit. During your initial consultation with Attorney Fine we can help you determine what these damages may look like and how much you may be entitled to through legal action.
Remember, if you settle with an insurance company you cannot file a personal injury lawsuit. We recommend you call (661) 333-3333 before you discuss terms with insurance to make sure you are not accepting an amount less than you are due.
