What kinds of damages am I eligible for after an accident?
The damages you may be eligible for depend on several factors. Each case is different and each one needs to be assessed on the facts of that case alone. There is no one size fits all to determining compensation for various injuries.
Your personal injury attorney determines roughly what you may be eligible for by reviewing the facts of your case. Damages that may be awarded for the past and present costs for permanent disabilities that affect your daily life, any long-term and permanent disfigurement, such as amputations or severe scarring, short or long-term physical pain, emotional or mental suffering, income lost from your job, which includes any possible reduction in your ability to continue to perform the job to the fullest, and medical expenses.
