Back To Blog

Posted in Uncategorized

If you can prove another person was at fault for injuring you, you are entitled to damages. Including the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages from work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Any property damaged because of the incident
  • The cost of hiring someone to do household chores when you could not
  • Any other costs that were a direct result of your injury

If you have suffered a “permanent injury”, you are also entitled to non-economic damages. A permanent injury is defined as any one or more of the following:

  • Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function
  • Permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability, other than scarring or disfigurement
  • Significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement
  • Death

If you have a permanent injury, you can recover non-economic damages, which could include pain and suffering (in the past and future), loss of consortium for damage to the relationship between spouses, and other emotional damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can advise you of the damages you can recover.
