If you have suffered a permanent injury in an auto accident, not only would you be eligible to be compensated by payment of your medical bills directly after the accident, but you can also potentially recover reasonable future medical bills. If appropriate, mental pain and suffering may be compensable, as may permanent disfigurement. An accident victim can also recover the costs of rehabilitative services, such as physical therapy or even be compensated for costs incurred to modify their home for ease of living and ambulation in some circumstances.
An injured person could also recover lost past and future wages, and compensation for damage to personal property. If your life has been dramatically altered and you cannot do all the things you could do and enjoy prior to the accident, loss of enjoyment of life is also compensable in certain situations. A person’s spouse can also be compensated for loss of consortium, compensation for the negative impact the accident and injuries may have had upon the married couple’s life, love and affection. In addition, a previous injury will not necessarily bar monetary recovery, if the accident aggravated or worsened the injured party’s existing injury. Contact our personal injury attorneys for help.
