Potential damages after a car accident

On Behalf of | Mar 16, 2024 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

If you get involved in a car accident, it may not be your fault. Maybe someone else ran a red light and T-boned your car. They were distracted by their phone and they didn’t see the light. You know that the fault lies with them, and the police report backs that up.

As a result, you’re looking to seek compensation for the damages that you suffered in the crash. What are some of the areas you can consider?

Medical bills

To begin with, consider any medical bills that you have from your injuries. Simply being driven to the hospital in an ambulance can cost thousands of dollars. If you had a serious injury, such as a traumatic brain injury, you could be looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical costs.

Pain and suffering

If you have been injured, you’ve likely experienced significant pain and suffering that you wouldn’t have gone through without that other driver’s negligent action. You may be able to seek some compensation for this or related issues, such as your loss of enjoyment in life or a loss of consortium.

Changes to your income

Finally, just consider how the accident may have changed your income and your earnings. Start by looking at any lost wages from the time you spent in the hospital. But also be sure that you consider if you’re going to have any lost earning capacity in the future and how your long-term earnings may be altered.
