Getting injured in an accident can leave you with various financial losses and when you weren’t responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you shouldn’t be responsible for the financial burden that results. Economic damages are damages you can recover in your personal injury lawsuit that will comprise any financial losses you’ve suffered.
At The Kindley Firm, APC, we strive to help injured victims recover as quickly as possible after an accident. It’s difficult to recover when you don’t have the funds to get proper treatment. By holding the liable party responsible in your case, you’ll be able to fight for the settlement you deserve and hopefully get your medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages covered.
Getting injured in an accident will probably leave you in the hospital for an extended period. Even when you get out of the hospital, you may not be able to return to work right away. During this time, you’ll lose income from being out of work and, when someone else was at fault for your accident, they’re also causing you this loss of income. You can recover lost income in your economic damages.
The primary part of your economic damages will be any medical expenses you’ve incurred from your injuries. You can recover these damages by showing your medical records as evidence; however, you may also recover compensation for future medical expenses by getting a doctor’s assessment. Although you haven’t incurred these expenses yet, the negligent party should still have to cover them.
If you were in a car accident or some other accident where more than just your body experienced damage, then you may recover compensation for property damage in your settlement. Property damage are a part of economic damages and can cover vehicle damage and other material losses.
Aside from economic damages, you’ll also be able to fight for non-economic damages in your claim, which are ways in which the accident has affected your overall lifestyle. At The Kindley Firm, APC, we’re prepared to negotiate on your behalf and maximize your claim.
