Compensation Available in Your Personal Injury Claim
When you are injured by the negligent actions of another party, you may be entitled to money damages. However, getting the full compensation that you deserve is not an easy process. Insurance carriers have one goal: to settle your claim as quickly as possible, for as little as possible. They will take all measures necessary to reach this goal. To make sure you get the full compensation that you deserve for the negligent actions of their insured, it is in your best interest to hire an aggressive attorney who will fight for your rights.
The type and amount of compensation that you may be entitled to depends on the specific facts of your case. However, there are two types of general compensation available to personal injury claimants: general damages and specific damages. Specific damages include any type of damage that can be specially proven with a receipt or record, such as medical bills and loss of wages. General damages are damages that you have incurred that cannot be proven with a receipt, such as emotional distress and pain and suffering.
Some common types of compensation that are generally available in personal injury cases include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Loss of wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental trauma
- Loss of consortium
- Any other out of pocket expenses related to the accident
