If you are injured in a car accident because of someone’s negligence or recklessness, you may suffer intangible losses that qualify for compensatory damages. Intangible losses are pain and suffering and mental distress. Pain and suffering includes physical pain but also includes things like anxiety, grief, embarrassment, and worry resulting from the injuries of the accident.
If you have permanent disfigurement and disability from the accident, you may have both intangible and tangible losses. The damages for these injuries require compensation that will cover any permanent physical, mental, and emotional disabilities or disfigurements that resulted from the accident.
If the court finds that you have endured pain and suffering, you may be compensated for both past and future distress related to the accident as well.
