What Compensation Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Claim?

When a person is involved in an accident or severely injured due to someone else’s negligence, they are likely to experience a number of physical, emotional, and financial challenges. From obtaining proper medical care to taking time off work to recover to managing mounting bills and day-to-day expenses, not to mention navigating a new disability or dealing with emotional trauma resulting from the accident, victims and their families face significant challenges.

The losses resulting from a personal injury or accident are known as “damages,” and they can be either economic or non-economic in nature. The purpose of a personal injury claim is to allow victims of negligent and wrongful conduct to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages.

Additionally, when a person is wrongfully killed, meaning their death was caused by the negligent or wrongful actions or inactions of another person or party, eligible surviving individuals may seek compensation for damages such as medical care costs, funeral/burial expenses, lost income or inheritance, and loss of love, support, guidance, society, companionship, and consortium.

Types of damages

Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Doctors’ bills
  • Hospital bills
  • Ambulance or emergency room fees
  • Prescription drugs & medications
  • Medical equipment/devices
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Future medical care costs
  • Future lost earnings
  • In-home care costs
  • Lost earning capacity (disability)
  • Modifications to a home/vehicle
  • Pain and suffering

The Carter mario difference

Although you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, navigating the legal process and actually recovering that compensation is often a difficult, complex task. Insurance companies go to great lengths to dispute or deny claims; they have powerful legal teams working for them with the sole purpose of limiting payouts and protecting their bottom lines. It’s important that you also have an equally skilled legal team on your side.

At Carter Mario Law Firm, we not only have a proven record of success, having secured hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients in the past 30+ years, but we are also wholly committed to our clients.
