What could I recover if I win a lawsuit after a car crash?

On Behalf of | Jun 14, 2022 | Car Accidents, Personal Injury

There are not many things that can ruin your day quite like suffering a car crash caused by the negligence of another driver. You could face serious injuries, sometimes with lasting effects that can severely impact your ability to provide for your family. Add onto that your medical bills, property damage, missed days of work, and diminished earning capacity, and in the blink of an eye you can find yourself with incredible challenges that can take years to resolve.

In light of this, you may be wondering what you stand to gain by taking legal action against the driver responsible for your accident. The answer is that you can seek compensation for all of your expenses resulting from the crash, both monetary and non-monetary.

Restitution for your losses

Justice demands that the victim of an accident be made whole again. If you had to spend money on things such as medical treatment or repairing your vehicle, you can seek reimbursement for these costs.

You can also recover for your lost wages from the days that you were unable to work while recovering from your injury. If the accident left you with a permanent disability that made you unable to return to the job that you had before the accident, then you might even be able to seek compensation for your diminished earning capacity.

Non-economic damages

The sad truth of car accidents is that they often result in injuries that no amount of money can fix. For example, even though money cannot help you overcome the emotional trauma, pain and suffering that you feel every day, you can seek compensation for these things as well. You can even seek compensation for things such as the loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship (for the time that you are unable to spend with your family like you used to), and more.

Money cannot set everything right after your accident, but it can make things easier for you as you fight to put your life back together. As stressful as it may seem, a personal injury lawsuit may be your best option for obtaining the compensation that you deserve.
