What Are the Different Types of Damages in Car Accident Cases?

Car accidents can have significant impacts on those injured in them. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people to be injured to a point where they need financial compensation to cover the cost of the damages they sustain. The best way to recover compensation for these damages is by filing a personal injury claim. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Bronx car accident lawyer to learn more about car accident cases and how we can recover compensation for the damages you’ve incurred. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the different types of damages I can receive in a car accident case?

When injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you can receive compensation for two types of damages: economic and non-economic. Economic damages can compensate you for the financial turmoil you’ve experienced because of your injuries, such as the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and more. On the other hand, non-economic damages can compensate you for other non-financial damages, such as pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and more.

How do I improve my chances of winning a car accident claim?

To improve your chances of winning your personal injury claim, it’s paramount that you document the facts surrounding your accident and retain the services of a competent Bronx personal injury attorney who can fight for the compensation you need to get back on your feet again. To start, after an accident, you should call the police and get the other driver’s insurance info. You should then take pictures of any damage to your vehicle and ensure you never apologize to the other driver or admit fault. You should also ask any witnesses for their contact information. Once law enforcement arrives and you’re taken to a hospital, you should get copies of all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries and hire a competent attorney who can fight for the compensation you deserve and need to heal. Our firm is here to help you through each phase of the claims process ahead.
