Personal injuries can happen under any set of circumstances. Rarely, though, are they more difficult than when someone else is to blame.
Whether you’ve been injured in a car, on someone else’s property, or by a defective product, you’re probably facing teeming medical bills and an inability to work.
Dealing with the insurance company on your own can be tough, but a personal injury lawyer can help you recover the settlement you need. Read on to learn more.
Personal Injury Lawsuit Basics
An injury of any kind can be devastating. Between medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and dealing with the physical impacts of your injury, it can be hard to keep up with it all.
The good news is that you may be entitled to financial compensation. When someone else is responsible for causing your injuries, filing a personal injury claim against them can help you recover money to pay for the damages you’ve suffered.
Personal injury claims can result from any number of accidents or intentional acts. The common factor is that another person or entity’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness was the real cause of your injuries.
Common examples of personal injury cases include:
- Car accident claims
- Truck accident claims
- Motorcycle accident claims
- Nursing home abuse claims
- Pedestrian accident claims
- Slip-and-fall claims
- Wrongful death claims
Regardless of the nature of your injury, if someone else was responsible, an experienced injury lawyer can help you take action.
Personal Injury Compensation
Generally, there are two types of compensation available to you in a personal injury settlement: economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages refer to “real” financial losses; for example, losses that can be expressed as debits in your checkbook. These are usually the bread and butter of any personal injury claim. Some examples include:
- Medical bills
- Emergency room fees
- Ambulance fees
- Out-patient therapy services
- Lost income
- Lost future earnings
Non-economic damages usually refer to less-tangible losses you suffer as the result of an accident. A few examples of these could be:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma or torment
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of emotional support
These damages normally are paid to you via a settlement agreement with the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance company, however, will usually do everything in its power to devalue your case.
That’s why many choose to partner up with an experienced attorney who can act as a stop-guard against the insurance company’s underhanded tactics.
