Personal Injury Damages
In order to obtain compensation in a personal injury settlement or judgment, the plaintiff must first prove that the defendant was negligent and that the negligence caused the plaintiff’s injuries. Once negligence is established, the plaintiff must then provide evidence to prove the amount of damages. Depending on the type of accident, the extent of the victim’s injuries, and laws of the jurisdiction involved, the plaintiff may be able to recover compensatory damages for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Household services
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Property damages
In some cases, the plaintiff may also be able to recover punitive damages, which are intended to punish the defendant and deter future wrongdoing.
Other Benefits and Compensation
In some cases, a personal injury claim will involve other areas of law, in addition to tort laws. For instance, if a personal injury accident occurs while on the job, the injured party will likely be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally, if a personal injury accident results in a disabling condition that prevents the injured party from working for at least 12 months, he or she may also be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
As a full-service accident and injury law firm, we help clients pursue claims for the full range of compensation and benefits to which they may be entitled, including personal injury damages, workers’ compensation benefits and Social Security Disability benefits.
