Damages Available After an Automobile Collision

People who have been injured in an automobile collision know that the bills can pile up quick. Hospital visits, medications, and surgeries are just some of the costs that automobile collision victims have to face.

However, victims of negligent drivers may pursue several types of compensation.

Medical Damages

No one can plan for the costs associated with unexpected injuries suffered in an automobile collision. These costs can skyrocket quickly, and you can find yourself swimming in medical debt. For that reason, a personal injury claim for damages can help victims with their medical expenses. These expenses can include hospital costs, emergency room costs, doctor’s visits, surgery, medical equipment and medications. There also could be compensation for future medical care costs as well.

Pain & Suffering Damages

Pain and suffering damages help with emotional trauma and suffering due to an automobile collision.

Lost Wages Damages

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you might miss time at work. This, in addition to growing medical bills, can be very worrisome for some. Compensation for lost wages can help car accident victims recover the earnings they have lost while they are unable to work after an automobile collision.
