Damage compensation comes in the form of financial awards for victims suffering from injuries or other compensable losses.
Some of the specific types of compensation include:
Medical bills: Compensation for medical bills includes both past and future charges. Physical therapy fees, surgeries, office visits, disability costs and other treatment charges are among the damages a victim can recover.
Lost wages: A personal injury can cause a victim to miss work. Affecting their ability to earn a salary and pay living expenses. Almost every personal injury judgment or settlement reimburses lost wages.
Loss of future earnings: When injuries cause disabilities or long-term health damages, a victim might not have the ability to work in their field of expertise. If this occurs, the victim can request compensation for lost future earnings.
Property damage: This includes costs to repair the victim’s car. The total value of the vehicle is recoverable if it is a complete loss. Losses can extend to items inside the car during the accident, including cell phones, computers & other belongings.
Pain and suffering: This primary form of noneconomic damage and compensation covers intangible factors, including distress, suffering and emotional and physical pain. Punitive damages: You may be entitled to this type of compensation when an injury results from someone else’s negligent behavior.
If attempting to recover compensation by suing the liable party, you will need to ensure that you file your lawsuit on time. Missing this deadline could mean the loss of your right to pursue damages.
Pennsylvania & New Jersey: accident victims have up to two years to file a lawsuit in most cases.
In some situations, you may be able to file a lawsuit even if the usual two-year cutoff has already passed. Because of this, it is essential that you contact a personal injury lawyer even if you think you have already missed your chances of collecting damages.
At the same time, the details of a case can further restrict the amount of time an accident victim has to file a lawsuit. Instead of two years, you could be limited to a matter of months. Hiring an attorney as soon as possible after your accident will help keep you from being caught off guard by an unexpected deadline.
