Common Personal Injuries You Could be Entitled to Compensation For
When your personal injuries are minor and you recover quickly without medical bills or missed work, there are no damages to recover. If your injuries have led to medical expenses and may impact your ability to work, the damages you are entitled to could be extensive.
Personal injuries that could entitle you to substantial compensation to cover your short- and long-term costs and damages include:
Traumatic brain injury – a bump or blow to the head can cause long-term medical problems and impact your ability to work and support your family
Back and neck injury – can lead to ongoing medical needs and impact your work life
Broken and fractured bones – such injuries can lead to substantial costs linked to surgeries and treatments and can keep you out of work for a prolonged time.
Nerve and spinal cord damage – can lead to partial or complete paralysis and life-long medical care and occupational issues.
Your Damages Include Medical Bills, Lost Wages, and Decreased Earnings Potential
When you are injured in an accident caused by someone or something else, your damages are meant to “make you whole”. This means that you are put in as close a position as possible as though the accident had never happened. Compensation includes short-term medical bills like your emergency room visit, as well as long-term costs like ongoing medication, treatment, or rehabilitation that might necessary for your injuries.
Accurately measuring the full costs associated with your injuries and recovering this in your compensation ensures that you and your family are not paying bills linked to your personal injury out of your household budget. Any impact your injury has upon your ability to work and contribute to the household budget can also entitle you to compensation. Your damages should include coverage for any lost wages and work benefits while recovering from your injuries. Additionally, these damages include any impact your injuries might have upon your ability to work and support your family.
