Compensation: What to Expect
Columbus, GA Personal Injury Attorney
Accidents come in many shapes and sizes but almost always have great potential to tear a life and/or a family apart. The law provides your right to recover money as compensation for what we lawyers call “damages.”
What Are “Damages?”
Damages can be broken down into several types and categories:
- Physical mental human pain and suffering, including mental and psychological injuries
- Medical expenses and bills, both current and future (not limited to co-pays and deductibles)
- Lost wages or earnings, both current and future
- Impairment of earning capacity, where you have a permanent injury or limitation on work you can perform
- Loss of enjoyment of life, maybe because you can no longer exercise, play golf or tennis, do aerobics, jog, garden, lift weights, go fishing, or play with your children or grandchildren; the list is endless and particular to your injury
- Loss of intimacy with your spouse or partner (also known as loss of consortium)
- Other out-of-pocket expenses, such as paying someone to clean your home, mow your lawn, or take care of your children while you are unable to do so
- Property damage, whether to your vehicle or other property damaged in the accident.
Automobile and other motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in Georgia, Alabama, and throughout the United States. However, they are not the only cause. It is possible to sustain life-altering injuries—and, therefore, damages—in any type of accident.
