How are Victims of Personal Injury Accidents in New York Compensated?

October 21st, 2017

Personal injury claim form

If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may have huge medical bills and other expenses due to your time off from work. You can recover these expenses through a personal injury lawsuit. Although it is true that money cannot restore your health, compensation can help to make your life whole again.

Victims of personal injury accidents in New York can seek compensation for two types of damages under the personal injury awards: special and general. Here is a brief description of the two damages:

Special damages: Special damages are those types of damages where victims can seek reimbursement for medical bills, costs of replacing damaged properties, lost wages and diminished lifetime earning capacity caused by the injuries. Special damages are easy to calculate and simple to prove because of the bills from doctors and vehicle repair shops.

General damages: General damages do not carry an objective monetary value. Victims can seek compensation for the pain and suffering they have endured, any physical disfigurement they have suffered and their reduced quality of life. It is important to note that general damages may differ according to the severity of injuries.

If you have been injured in an accident, seeking the help of a personal injury lawyer can make a huge difference in how much you recover. On many occasions, insurers have not compensated victims the full amount they deserve for their injuries. A skilled personal injury lawyer can advocate for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
