What Kinds of Injuries Can Result in a Personal Injury Claim?

You can make a personal injury claim after sustaining any kind of serious injury. Whether the injury is something you can recover from with a few months of rest or your injury could continue to affect you for life, you should be compensated. Common injuries in cases like these include:

  • Burns from fire or chemicals
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of a limb
  • Organ damage

Of course, many of these accidents can also cause psychological trauma and mental health issues. These should also be factors when fair compensation is calculated.

What Kinds of Damages Can I Win?

When you sue for compensation, you can be awarded multiple types of damages. Your settlement or verdict should make up for:

Medical expenses: This can include expenses you have already incurred as well as future medical expenses. Some injuries are going to need continued treatment, so that should be a factor when fair compensation is calculated.

Lost wages: If you have to miss work while you recover from your injuries, that can lead to a lot of missed pay. Your compensation should cover these lost wages so that your family does not have to deal with even more financial stress.

Loss of enjoyment: If your injuries will continue to affect you long after your accident, that could affect your ability to enjoy an activity or hobby you once loved. That matters.

Loss of earning potential: If your injuries affect your ability to work, that needs to be considered when you are negotiating for compensation. Whether you cannot return to work at all or you are unable to work for the same amount of hours each week due to medical issues, this is important to consider.
