If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the medical bills and other expenses may mount up quickly. However, these expenses can be recovered by filing a claim for compensation. Accident victims can claim compensation for special and general damages.
Under special damages, you can claim reimbursement for medical bills, the cost of replacing damaged property, lost wages and diminished lifetime earning capacity caused by the injuries. To claim special damages, you will need to provide the bills for medical and vehicle repair costs.
General damages differ according to the severity of the injuries. These damages are not limited to monetary value but include pain and suffering that the victim has endured as a result of the accident such as physical disfigurement and reduced quality of life.
If someone has been injured in an accident, it is imperative to consult a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. A skilled personal injury lawyer can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive your rightful compensation.
