Types of Compensation Available After a Car Accident

Springer & Steinberg

woman staring out a windowWhen people think about personal injury lawsuits, they typically picture people suing for the cost of medical assistance they need after car accidents. While reimbursements for medical bills is one form of car accident compensation, there are many others. Read on to learn about the different kinds of damages potentially available to those who file lawsuits.

Property Loss

If peoples’ property suffers damage in accidents, they may be entitled to restitution to fix or replace the property. Therefore, those who suffer car or property damage in accidents may receive compensation.

Lost Income

If a car accident impacts someone’s ability to work, he or she may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. In most situations, lost wages stem from work missed during the recovery period.

However, those who can no longer work due to suffering severe injuries have the right to seek damages for the wages they can’t make in the future; in other words, compensation for an accident victim’s “loss of earning capacity.”

Pain & Suffering

In accidents where victims suffer painful wounds, the injured may have the right to seek out damages for pain and suffering. Pain and suffering damages are monetary awards meant to reimburse victims for the pain they experienced or are experiencing from an accident.

Emotional Distress

Emotional distress damages compensate victims for the psychological impact of their injuries.

Post-accident psychological issues potentially covered by emotional distress damages include:

  • Loss of sleep;
  • Anxiety attacks;
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder;
  • Depression.
