If you are injured in a car accident because of someone’s negligence or recklessness, you qualify for compensatory damages. The damages you are entitled to include pain and suffering, medical expenses, disfigurement, and lost earning capacity. As a victim, you may recover damages for injuries that you have already sustained as well as any future damages resulting from the accident.
Damages victims incur include both tangible and intangible losses. Tangible losses include loss of income and medical expenses. Intangible losses include pain and suffering as well as mental distress.
Every case is different and the damages available depend on the circumstances of each case.
