What Kinds of Damages Can You Recover For Car Accident Injuries?

If you’ve suffered injuries from a car accident, you may be able to recover several types of damages. At the top of the list are medical expenses, but you may also claim damages that can’t necessarily be quantified – such as pain and suffering. In this blog, our Orlando car accident lawyer shares what types of damages you can claim after sustaining injuries in a car accident:

Medical Expenses

If you’ve been involved in a car accident, your injuries can be as minor as a few bruises and some soreness or as serious as head trauma, internal bleeding or permanent disability. Some of these injuries require around-the-clock medical care, which can quickly escalate your costs.

Medical expenses caused from car accidents can include:

  • Ambulance fees
  • Permanent disability
  • In-home services
  • Physical or cognitive therapy

Lost Wages

Some injuries sustained in a car accident may keep you from returning to work in a timely manner, resulting in a loss of work wages. Injuries that require continuous care may cause you to step out of work for doctor and physical therapy appointments. In regards to lost wages, you must prove that the injuries you suffered hinder on your ability to earn money in the future.

Pain and Suffering

In addition to mental or physical distress, pain and suffering damages can also include emotional suffering caused directly by the car accident. Pain and suffering is based on the type of injury, its seriousness and any future pain that is associated with the injury.

Loss of Affection or Companionship

Some injuries can deprive you and a spouse of the ability to show affection, also known as “loss of consortium.” This type of damage is unlike others in that it is claimed by the uninjured spouse, but the damages cannot be recovered if you don’t recover damages for your own injuries.
