When you’re hurt in a serious accident, you may be concerned about the costs of your losses. Repairs, medical bills, and the overwhelming suffering you’ve experienced have a big impact on your life, and you may struggle to know how much your personal injury claim is worth. 

If you’re unsure what your losses caused by the accident, or damages, are, below are a few of the damages you may be eligible for. Your personal injury attorney can help you seek your maximum compensation. That compensation should include both economic and non-economic damages, so speak with your attorney before you settle with an insurer or even file a claim for compensation. 

Your Financial Losses

After a serious injury, the costs of your recovery may already be piling up. Care for your injuries is expensive enough, and if you had any property damage, that should also be covered. You should also be compensated for any days you were unable to work because of your injuries. 

These financial damages may be relatively easy to add up, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed, too. Your compensation should cover all your losses caused by the injury, including future damages, like planned surgeries, so talk to your lawyer about getting your maximum compensation. Your NYC personal injury lawyer may be key to keeping track of all your losses.

Non-Economic Damages 

When you’re hurt, it’s not just about the money. You may have also experienced emotional and mental losses that have affected your health and well-being. These losses are intangible, though, which means they don’t have a clear financial value like your economic damages. 

Let’s say you were bitten by a dog. You may have recovered from the bite, but you have nightmares now about being attacked by a dog, and you’re now afraid of dogs. These losses are intangible, but they can impact the quality of your life. You may now have a hard time enjoying the park or going for a walk because you’re afraid of dogs. 

These losses are calculated based on the impact of your suffering on your life, as well as the severity of the suffering. So, if you lost a finger, you may not receive the same compensation for your non-economic damages that someone who lost a hand might receive. 

Calculate Your Claim with a Personal Injury Lawyer
