Potential Damages Available for Compensation Following a Crash
Car accidents lead to multiple hardships for the individual(s) who sustain injury. When the crash is a result of negligence, there may be potential for legal action to help relieve some of these hardships through monetary compensation.
However, not everyone understands their rights to seek compensation and what it means for them. Knowing the type of damages that may be available can help you understand the items you may need covered by the compensation you may receive.
When you think of the legal matters following a car accident, the first thing that comes to mind is often the cost. The financial hardship can be difficult for anyone to endure. Luckily, economic damages may be available to help you with these losses.
Economic damages are designed to help with the damages from the accident that have a monetary value such as those from medical bills, damage to property, rehabilitation costs, and even lost wages from being unable to work. Some cases may even consider lawyer fees as part of the economic damages.
While the financial hardships are incredibly difficult to deal with, the emotional hardship can be just as difficult or even more challenging to endure. Because of this, there are some situations in which compensation may be available for pain and suffering after an accident.
These are referred to as non-economic damages and are potentially available to injured individuals for damages without a monetary value. The amount awarded is up to the discretion of the courts and can help the injured party cope with some of the emotional impact of the crash.
