What Damages Are Available in A Personal Injury Case?

If you find yourself injured due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may feel overwhelmed by medical bills, lost time at work and emotional pain and suffering. Bills might be coming due and you could potentially deal with a domino-effect of consequences should you lose your job or be unable to work while you recuperate from your issues.

If you or a loved one is in this situation, the first step to take is to find yourself a Dayton, Ohio personal injury lawyer with the experience to help you navigate these tricky legal waters. At The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC we can help you get the compensation you deserve. Personal injury damages available include:

Medical bills from all injuries caused by the incident

All medical bills from hospital care, surgery, physical therapy, chiropractic care or any other type of medical service rendered because of the accident.

Pain and suffering

This measure of damages is in the category of Non-Economic damages. It can include physical injuries, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and one’s inability to perform their daily activities. Unlike medical bills, non-economic damages are intangible, and you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to maximize your amount of recovery.

Emotional toll

Emotional loss often happens in the aftermath of a car accident or other traumatic incident. This is a legitimate loss, but it often requires expert testimony to verify.

Lost wages

If you are unable to work while recovering after your accident, you are entitled to receive compensation to include all your lost wages that resulted from your inability to work.

Wrongful death

If you lost a loved one to someone else’s carelessness, wrongful death is a specific damage that your personal injury lawyer may pursue.
