In a personal injury lawsuit when you are injured through the fault of someone else, you are entitled to be compensated for your damages.
Damages in a personal injury lawsuit include a wide array of components, such as: your physical and emotional pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and any expenses incurred as a result of your accident-related injuries, etc. The purpose of recovering compensation for your damages is to make you whole again, as you were before the accident.
When it comes to damages in a personal injury case it is important for an attorney to document and highlight each component of damages so the defendant’s insurance company and/or Court can see exactly what you have lost and incurred as a result of this accident. Depending on your case, the damages and expenses you incur can sometimes be exorbitant, so it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney be able to maximize the most for your damages.
