Have you been injured in a car accident? Are you facing medical bills because of a slip and fall accident? Did a driver turn in front of your motorcycle causing you to crash?

Damages in A Personal Injury Accident
When you are injured in an accident, you are entitled to compensation for damages from the person who caused the accident. Damages include your out-of-pocket expenses and losses in addition to the pain and suffering you experience due to your injuries. Common examples of damages that you may receive compensation for in an accident claim include:
- Medical expenses, including compensation for ongoing medical care and personal care, if needed
- Loss of income, including future lost wages and loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
- Other out-of-pocket expenses for medications, medical equipment, travel expenses, etc.
- Physical pain and emotional distress
- Permanent disability, scarring, and disfigurement
The damages in your case may include other types of losses and injuries, depending on the facts in your case.
Receiving Compensation for Injuries from An Accident
Accident claims should be straightforward. If someone causes you to be injured, that person should be responsible for paying compensation to you for your damages after you prove the person caused the accident and you were injured because of the accident. When insurance coverage is available, the insurance company should pay the compensation for your damages. Unfortunately, many accident claims are not this easy, even when the other person is clearly responsible for the accident.
Insurance companies are not in business to pay claims — they are in business to make money. Therefore, insurance companies try their best to avoid paying accident claims, even when those claims are valid. For this reason, it is always in your best interest to consult with a Warren personal injury attorney before you discuss the accident with the insurance adjuster for the other party.
The insurance adjuster does NOT work for you. He does NOT have your best interest as his top priority. The insurance adjuster is not a bad person; he is just doing his job when he protects the insurance company’s best interest.
You deserve to have someone on your side who is committed to protecting your best interest. Our experienced Warren personal injury attorneys have the skills, resources, and experience you want on your side.
