What types of damages are available to car accident victims?

It is important for any victim injured in a car accident or other type of traumatic accident to be familiar with the personal injury damages that may be available to help them with the injuries and harm they have suffered. A personal injury claim for damages can help car accident victims during their recovery process receive compensation to help with their physical, financial and emotional damages.

Victims of car accidents commonly suffer a litany of unexpected damages they may not be prepared to deal with all at once. Personal injury damages that may be able to help injured victims and their families include compensation for medical expenses and future medical care costs as need. Additional damages may be available for permanent disability and disfigurement in situations when the victim has suffered those types of damages.

Additional damages may be available for the injured victim’s time away from work during the recovery process including lost wages and lost-earning capacity damages. Car accident victims can suffer a wide range of injuries and harm in a car accident which is why additional types of damages may be available to help injured victims with the emotional anguish suffered in a car accident. Damages for loss of companionship, loss of consortium, loss of support and services and loss of enjoyment of life may also be available.

Legal protections are important to car accident victims so they are not left with medical expenses, lost earnings and pain and suffering. A personal injury claim for damages can be brought against a negligent driver who has harmed the victim so that car accident victims receive the help they need.
