[tab name=”Injury Due to Car Accident”] Are you injured due to a car accident?  Do you have medical expenses incurred to treat an injury, such as doctor’s visits; hospital expenses; emergency room expenses; fees for chiropractic care; physical therapy; and any type of medical devices that may be needed for your recovery, such as neck braces or crutches.

  • Future Medical Expenses: These are recoverable if the injured party can show that he or she is likely to need continued medical care as a result of the accident or injury.
  • Mental Anguish: Recovery for any type of mental or emotional distress suffered as a result of an accident or injury.
  • If the injured party has been disfigured by the accident/incident, mental suffering is recoverable for this type of emotional injury.
  • Lost Wages: You may recover the amount of money you would have earned between the time of the injury to the time of a judgment or settlement had you not been injured.
  • Past earnings will be used to determine an appropriate damage award, but a jury will likely focus on what might have been earned had the accident or injury not occurred.
  • The uninjured spouse makes the claim and only has a chance of recovering if the injured spouse succeeds in recovering damages.
