The Types of Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim

December 28th, 2017

Personal injury victim

If you have been injured in an accident caused by another person’s careless, negligent or reckless behavior, you may file a personal injury claim against the negligent person or party. A personal injury claim can help an injured person recover compensation for the injuries and the damages he or she has suffered. Here are some types of compensation that are available in a personal injury claim:

Medical expenses: If the injuries were serious and required medical treatment, the injured person can recover compensation for both past and future medical bills. This includes doctors’ visits, medical treatment, surgeries, lab work and other tests and medications.

Lost wages and income: If the injuries were so serious that the injured person is unable to return to work for days or weeks or has to stop working altogether, he or she may claim compensation.

Pain and suffering: An injured person may seek compensation for the physical pain and suffering caused by the accident. Compensation for this type of injury depends on the seriousness of the pain and the prognosis for future pain associated with the injury. This may also include mental or emotional damage from the incident such as anxiety or stress.

Property damage: If the accident resulted in the vehicle, electronic devices or any other property damage, the injured person may seek reimbursement for the repair costs or the property’s fair market value.

Loss of enjoyment of life: If the injured person is no longer able to do things that he or she could do before the incident, such as engaging in recreational activities and other fun activities with his or her family, he or she may be able to receive compensation for these losses.

Loss of consortium: If the injured person is no longer able to have an intimate relationship with his or her spouse, the spouse can seek compensation for this loss.

Punitive damages: These are generally granted to punish the at-fault party and prevent others from engaging in the same behavior.

The Possible Outcomes in a Personal lnjury Lawsuit

December 5th, 2017

personal injury claim

If you have suffered injuries due to someone else’s negligence, you may file a personal injury claim against the negligent party and recover compensation for your injuries. However, it is important for you to understand the possible outcomes of your claim. The following are the possible outcomes of your claim:

Your case may settle out of court: Most personal injury claims reach a settlement before going to trial. A settlement results in a formal contract between the injured party, also known as the plaintiff, and the defendant wherein the plaintiff agrees to drop the case in exchange for monetary compensation for:

  • Past, present and future medical bills
  • Lost income
  • A diminished capacity to earn
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property and vehicle repair costs

Your case may go to trial: If the insurance company offers you a low settlement or refuses to compensate you for your injuries, your attorney may take your case to trial.

You may win the case at trial: If you win the case at trial, damages may be awarded to compensate for hospital bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses.

The defendant may win the case at trial: If the defendant wins the case, you will not receive an award. You may, however, be ordered to reimburse the defendant for legal fees, court filing fees, attorney fees and other taxable costs of the defendant.

Appealing the verdict: If the judgement in the case goes against you, you can appeal the decision. You have 30 days to appeal after the verdict has been entered. If an appellate court finds that there was an error in the judgement, the court can remand the case for further adjudication or overturn the judgement.
