Damages Awarded in a Personal Injury Case
No two personal injury cases are alike and, therefore, neither are the damages awarded. The details of your circumstances, such as the severity of your injury and your ability to achieve a full recovery, will factor into the compensation awarded.
Below are some of the compensatory damages generally awarded in a personal injury case:
- Medical expenses: One of the most obvious costs associated with an injury are the medical expenses most victims incur. Compensation usually covers the cost of treatment, surgeries, physical therapy, and any other medical care you might need to manage your symptoms and recover from your injuries.
- Lost wages: If your injuries were so severe that you needed to take time off from work, compensation can cover this as well. Moreover, if you cannot return to work due to your injuries, you can also receive compensation for lost earning capacity.
- Property damage or loss: For example, if you were in a car accident and the vehicle was totaled, compensation can cover the cost of replacing or repairing the vehicle.
- Pain and suffering: In a personal injury lawsuit, plaintiffs can also be awarded for the physical and mental pain and suffering they endured as a result of their injuries.
- Loss of enjoyment: If your injuries hinder your ability to enjoy your usual daily pursuits, you might receive compensation for the loss of enjoyment.
- Loss of consortium: Generally, this refers to the inability to maintain a sexual relationship. For example, if your injuries resulted in sexual dysfunction, impacting your sexual relationships or your ability to pursue a sexual relationship, you can receive compensation for this loss.
