What Types of Damages Can I Recover After an Accident?

A car accident can lead to a catastrophic injury and have huge implications for a person’s life. The physical pain from a serious injury can be substantial, and the long-term effects can be even more problematic. Rehabilitative care may be necessary to set a person on the path to recovery, or in severe cases, lifelong medical care may be needed. The most severe injuries can prevent the victim from ever again enjoying a normal life.

The expenses of care and rehabilitation, compounded by an inability to work and a loss of wages, can spell financial disaster to an injured person. A personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver can bring you compensation for these costs. You should not have to pay a penny out of pocket for an accident that you didn’t cause!

When you work with Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs, you may be able to obtain compensation for the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Property damage
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

If you are considering filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one, you may seek compensation for damages including:

  • Medical care
  • Pain and suffering prior to death
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial expenses

Each case is different, so consult with an attorney at our firm for more information on what types of compensation you can pursue in a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Our ultimate goal is to maximize your compensation so that you have what you need to focus on your recovery.
