TYPES OF CAR ACCIDENTAL CLAIMS
You can be compensated for any economic and non-economic damages resulting from a personal injury in a car accident claim. Here are a few examples of types of claims:
- Economic: Economic damages are losses that can be quantified in terms of money, such as medical bills or lost wages.
- Non-economic: Non-economic damages are more subjective claims based on the injury's impact on your life, such as pain and suffering, anxiety, etc.
The following are the most common types of car accident claims:
This type of claim covers all medical expenses related to your injuries. You can get compensation for emergency treatment, rehabilitation costs, surgical procedures, current and future hospital bills and any medication you have to pay for.
If your car is damaged due to an accident, the at-fault party's insurance company may be responsible for it.
Lost wages or income
You can claim lost wages if you cannot return to work after the accident due to injuries that don't allow you to do some of your normal activities.
Loss of consortium
This type of claim is for a spouse or companion if you suffer a loss of support, services and companionship as the result of the accident.
Pain and Suffering
The at-fault party may be held responsible for any physical and emotional pain and suffering you experienced as the result of your injuries.
If a loved one dies as a result of someone else's negligence, their family members can file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party or his/her insurance company to receive compensation.
Your injury claims may be worth far more than what you were initially offered by the at fault party's insurance company. If your injuries don't heal as expected, your temporary disability, lost wages and other financial losses can add up quickly.
