Is it worth it to pursue a personal injury claim?
liability for an accident has been established, the responsible parties owe the injured person a
monetary award to cover the total amount of damages that are owed. While
it is clear that no monetary compensation will be able to cover the trauma
imposed by the accident, these monetary awards are intended to cover a
variety of different means to compensate for the injury.
In a personal injury case, you can recover damages for:
- Medical care you have needed and will need in the future
- Lost income as a result of being out of work
- Future income you may lose as a result of this injury
- Loss of property
- Pain and suffering
- Psychological impact resulting from the injury
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Effects on personal relationships
In addition to these damages, anyone that has been injured may be able
to seek punitive damages, which are not intended to compensate for the
injury, but rather punish the liable party for causing harm to begin with.
Punitive damages are an additional cost to the negligent party that works
to deter them from acting in the same manner, or discouraging others from
acting the same way.
