You can file a personal injury compensation claim if you have suffered an accident and ended up injured due to someone else’s negligent behavior. For this process, it is necessary to have strong evidence that shows what happened and what damages you suffered. The most common damages are physical and mental health injuries, property and monetary loss, etc.
The objective of a compensation claim, as the name indicates, is to compensate the affected person for the damages suffered. Among the benefits you can claim in a personal injury lawsuit are:
1. Medical expenses: these expenses will cover medical equipment, medications, treatments, therapies, surgeries, among others. Compensation will cover all anticipated past, present, or future medical costs resulting from the accident.
2. Lost wages: this benefit is intended to cover the income you lost when you stopped working due to the injury. If you suffer an injury that prevents you from returning to work, you must be compensated.
3. Property Damage: If your property is damaged, you may receive compensation for the value of your items.
4. Pain and Suffering: If you experience pain, discomfort, or trauma from the accident, you may receive compensation for this.
5. Loss of enjoyment of life: if because of the accident you were temporarily or permanently disfigured or disabled and cannot return to your daily activities as before, you may be compensated for the loss.
