Getting Compensatory Damages for Your Injury

bank note

How can your personal injury lawyer get you the best settlement after a car accident? In my years of experience, preparation and knowledge are key. Today, I am blogging about a part of your monetary settlement known as “compensatory damages.”

Different Types of Monetary Damages After A Car Accident

As the plaintiff or claimant, we must establish our case to win. When we establish fault causing you harm, we can request monetary damages.

“Compensatory damages” is a general term that encompasses different categories of harm you have suffered and attempting to put a value on same.

For example, if you were in an auto accident and have uncompensated property damage – the cost of repairs and the value of your vehicle could be a compensatory damage.

Almost all the time, there are two types of compensatory damages a personal injury lawsuit would have:

  1. Actual damages: medical and hospital bills, medical treatments (physical therapy, chiropractor, etc.), ambulance expenses, or nursing home care
  2. General damages: mental anguish, permanent impairment, disfigurement, future medical costs, pain and suffering, or future lost wages.

Many courts will consider all different types of compensatory damages. If you experienced a personal injury and now have nightmares, anxiety, or symptoms of PTSD from the injury – you could receive compensation for emotional distress.
