If you are injured in an auto accident because of someone’s negligence or recklessness, you may endure tangible losses that can qualify for compensatory damages. Tangible losses include medical expenses and lost income.
The injuries sustained from the accident may result in many medical expenses. You are allowed to recover damages for the medical expenses you incur and for those in the future that have been caused by the accident. If the injuries are to a child, the monetary damages will be awarded on behalf of the injured child to the parents.
After a serious accident where many injuries are involved, you may also be unable to work. You may be entitled to compensation of the wages that you lost due to the injuries you sustained because of the auto accident. In some severe cases, where the injuries from the accident permanently impair earning capacity, damages may be awarded for the loss of future earnings.
Every case is different and the damages available depend on the circumstances of each case.
