What damages are recoverable in a personal injury case?

When an individual is injured in an accident due to the negligence of another party, they may find themselves considering their legal options. Being injured in an accident often results in unexpected costs that the injured party may be financially unprepared for, especially with the incredibly high costs of healthcare we are faced with. If one decides to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused them to become injured, they may be able to recover significant compensation. There are two types of damages that the victim of an accident may be eligible to recover in a lawsuit.

First, one may be able to collect economic damages. This is compensation to cover the cost of the economic hardships an injured party was subject to as a result of the accident. Some of the economic damages can include the cost of medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages due to time out of work, and more. The other type of damages are called noneconomic damages. These are for the (not tangible) price an individual has paid for being in an accident that was not their fault. A few examples of noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.

If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, it is important to retain the legal guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney.

The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny is prepared to take on any personal injury case that clients throughout New York City are faced with. If you have been the victim of injuries due to another party’s negligence, contact our firm today to schedule a consultation.
