When a negligent person causes you or a loved one to be harmed in an accident, you may recover all damages relating to the incident. There are many categories for damages you are allowed to recuperate, including present and future medical bills, lost income, physical pain, mental anguish, and other related bills. By providing your personal injury attorney all the proper information, you are better prepared to be compensated for all your injuries.
Medical bills range from the expensive ambulance bill, the hospital bill, the emergency physicians’ bill, x-rays, MRI’s, CAT scans, prescriptions, primary care physicians’ follow-up medical care, medical equipment needed, and more depending on the severity of your injuries. For more serious injuries, future medical bills for further treatment will be needed. Lost Wages may also be proven if you were not able to go to work due to the accident or treatment following.
Non-monetary damages, mental anguish and physical pain, may also be assessed. These damages may be recovered for the pain and suffering you or a loved one entailed after you suffered from the negligence of another. Accidents can be extremely difficult to deal with and very frustrating. Sometimes, victims may suffer from emotional distress, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), or even the loss of a loved one!
Don’t remain a victim and get fully compensated! An experienced personal injury attorney will help guide you or anyone you know involved in an accident to get the most they deserve, instead of settling for less by the hands of an insurance company.
