What Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Case?

Exploring Recovery Options in Personal Injury Cases


If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be wondering what kind of damages you can recover in a personal injury case. The answer varies depending on the facts and circumstances of your particular case, but generally speaking, you may be able to recover for bodily injury, pain and suffering, wrongful death, emotional injuries, lost wages, property damage, and any other economic loss.

The information provided in this blog serves as general information and should not be considered legal advice.

If you require personalized legal assistance regarding any personal injury, don't hesitate to contact Lawfty for guidance tailored to your specific situation.

Bodily Injury

If you have been injured in an accident, you can recover for your past and future medical expenses, as well as any permanent disability or scarring that you may have suffered. If you are unable to work because of your injuries, you may also be able to recover for your lost wages.

Pain and Suffering

You may also be able to recover for your pain and suffering. This includes not only the physical pain that you have endured, but also the mental anguish and emotional distress that you have experienced as a result of your injuries.

Wrongful Death

If a loved one has tragically died in an accident, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim. This type of claim allows certain family members to recover for their own damages, such as the love, companionship, comfort, guidance, and protection that they have lost as a result of their loved one's death.

Emotional Injuries

In some cases, you may be able to recover for emotional injuries even if you have not suffered any physical injuries. For example, if you witness a loved one being killed in an accident, you may be able to bring a claim for the resulting post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Property Damage

If you have been involved in an accident, chances are good that your vehicle sustained some damage. You can recover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle. If your vehicle was totaled in the accident, you can also recover the value of your vehicle.

Lost Wages

Additionally, if the accident has caused you to miss time from work or has resulted in a loss of earning capacity, you can seek to recover those losses as well.

As you can see, there are many different types of damages that may be available to you if you have been injured in an accident. The calculators that you find on other personal injury attorney sites do not take into consideration the unique parts of your individual case.
