Damages That You Can Seek After An Auto Accident Injury
Bill Allen | December 26, 2017 | Gainesville Personal Injury Law News
Injuries happen all the time. From car accidents alone, approximately 3 million people are injured every year on roadways in the United States. If you have been injured in an auto accident, it’s important to consider seeking legal assistance so that you can receive fair compensation for your damages. While you may want to anticipate a fair offer from an insurance company, these quick settlement offers are not usually a good idea considering the impact that an injury can have. In addition, when speaking with an insurance company, statements you make to them can have an impact on your ability to get a fair settlement.
By working with an experienced Ocala or Gainesville accident lawyer, you can potentially be compensated for the following:
Whether it’s major surgery or minor medical expenses, you are entitled to your out of pocket medical expenses. Medical care is costly, and hospital bills can accumulate quickly. However, if another person or company was responsible for your injury, you are entitled to compensation for expenses such as ambulance fees, exams and office visits, diagnostic testing, and medical equipment and supplies.
If an injury results in lost time from work, even if your employer has allowed you to use your vacation or sick time accrued, this is still a loss to you that can be compensated. Consult with your Ocala or Gainesville lawyer to find out exactly how you might recover your lost wages.
Mental and Physical Distress
Your personal injury claim may also include compensation for both mental and physical pain and suffering. These damages can vary depending on the type of the injury and the severity involved. Having an accident can be terrifying and stressful. If you’ve been injured, don’t wait. Get the legal help you need and deserve so that you don’t have to deal with a car accident claim all by yourself.
