Types of Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. In a personal injury lawsuit, there are several types of damages that you can recover.

1. Medical Expenses: 

This includes all medical expenses related to the injury, such as hospital bills, doctor’s visits, and prescription medication costs.

2. Lost Wages: 

If the injury caused the victim to miss work, they may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This includes not only the wages lost during the recovery period but also future earnings that may be lost due to the injury.

3. Pain and Suffering: 

This type of damage is meant to compensate the victim for the physical and emotional pain and suffering that they have experienced as a result of the injury.

4. Emotional Distress: 

In addition to pain and suffering, emotional distress damages are available for emotional trauma caused by the accident, such as anxiety, depression, and fear.

5. Property Damage: 

If the accident caused damage to the victim’s property, such as a vehicle, they may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement.

6. Loss of Consortium: 

This type of damage is available to compensate the victim’s spouse for the loss of companionship, affection, and sexual intimacy that resulted from the injury.
