What damages can be recovered in an accident case?

When an individual gets injured in an accident because of another party’s negligence, they may want to consider their legal options. One of the biggest problems that an injured party may face after an accident is regarding the long-lasting burdens that it caused. In a successful personal injury case, the injured party will be able to recover damages for both economic and noneconomic burdens that they have faced.

Economic damages are the financial costs the injured party faced as a result of the accident. These often include medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation, lost wages due to time out of work, and more. Of course, individuals are often not financially prepared for these high costs. A successful personal injury case can allow an individual to recover compensation that will offset these costs and reduce some of the economic burdens on the injured party.

Noneconomic damages are those that are not financial in nature but are still significant, nonetheless. These can include emotional stress caused by the accident, the pain and suffering that the individual faced, the loss of independence, the loss of relationship, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more. These are only some of the lasting effects of a serious injury caused by the negligence of another party.
