What Damages Are Available For Personal Injury?

If you are considering pursuing a personal injury claim after a serious accident, you may be wondering what type of compensation is available from personal injury settlements.

At D'Amico Law Offices, L.L.C., in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we strive to provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for you. Below is a list of the types of damages you may be able to collect if your claim is successful.

Not all damages are available in every case. We can help you better understand which may apply to you in a free consultation.

Medical Expenses

If you were injured in a crash, you can seek compensation for any medical expenses related to your accident, including:

  • Ambulance costs
  • Physical or cognitive therapy
  • Doctor visits related to your accident
  • Permanent disability
  • Future medical expenses if your injuries require ongoing treatment

To give yourself the best chance at receiving compensation, it is important to continue to seek medical attention throughout the duration of your claim. The better your medical records, the better your chances of being awarded compensation will be.

Lost Wages And Lost Earning Capacity

Sometimes, a car accident leaves a victim unable to work for a period of time. In worse situations, your injuries may be severe enough that you cannot perform your previous job duties — or cannot work at all anymore.

In these cases, you can seek compensation for lost wages and lost earning capacity.

Loss Of Companionship

When an injury is severe enough that it affects the victim's relationship with his or her spouse, compensation may be available for loss of companionship. For example, if an accident has diminished your ability to be affectionate with your spouse, you may be able to seek damages for loss of companionship.

Pain And Suffering

Damages related to pain and suffering may be issued when a victim suffered mental and emotional pain due to the accident. Pain and suffering damages can only be collected in certain situations. Our lawyers can review your situation and explain whether they may be available to you.
