What kinds of damages are usually pursued in a personal injury case?
When someone is injured, the consequences can be far reaching. An accident and injury can end up costing thousands in medical bills or property repairs and can also cause long or short term physical and psychological damage. For this reason, when the accident is the result of negligent or reckless behavior on the part of another person, the injured individual has the right to file suit against them in order to recover compensation for their expenses and losses. In personal injury cases, a victim may pursue financial compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of property
- Loss of enjoyment
- Damage to interpersonal relationships
In addition to these damages, there could also be punitive damages depending on if the individual acted in a particularly egregious manner.
