What kinds of damages can I recover after a car accident?

An unexpected car accident can change the lives of victims in an instant and leave them wondering what to do about the damages they have suffered. It is important for auto accident victims to know that they may be able to recover compensation for the harm they have suffered. However, they may wonder what specific types of damages they may be able to recover.

Car accident damages can include compensation for the car accident victim's physical, financial and emotional damages. The victim may be able to recover compensation for ambulance fees; visits with doctors and medical care professionals; physical and cognitive therapy; medical care accessories; disfigurement; permanent disability; and medical care and treatment needed in the home. In some circumstances, compensation for ongoing medical care and future medical care costs may be available.

Additionally, victims may also be able to recover compensation for lost wages while they are away from work recovering from their injuries. If they are unable to work because of the harm they suffered or if they are unable to do the work they previously did, victims may also be able to recover compensation for lost-earning capacity. Lastly, pain and suffering damages may also be available to injured victims for the emotional trauma associated with an unexpected car accident and the impact it can have on the victim's life.

It is important for car accident victims to be familiar with the legal remedies and resources available to help them with the harm they have suffered. Car accident damages, and the overall impact of a car accident, can be extensive, which is why injured victims should be familiar with the legal resources available.
