Personal Injury Damages
Damages that can accompany a serious injury include:
- Current and future medical costs
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Current and future lost wages
- Adaptive technologies
- Home modifications
These damages, known as special damages, are provable. They have set figures. Establishing them is fairly straightforward. This does not mean that insurance will be eager or even willing to pay for them in full.
General damages for things like physical pain and emotional suffering may prove even more difficult to secure from insurance. They are frequently included in personal injury settlements or verdicts.
