Common Personal Injury Damages
If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages. The types of damages that are available in a personal injury case will vary depending on the facts of the case, but some common examples include:
If you have been injured in an accident and are unable to work, you may be able to recover the wages you would have earned during that time. If you have suffered traumatic brain injuries that limit your ability to return to work, our Kansas City office will also calculate these future impacts.
This can include ambulance fees, hospital bills, medical devices, prescription costs, physical therapy, future medical bills for ongoing medical treatment, and a variety of other damages that injury victims face following a Kansas City personal injury. With permanent, disabling injuries, a medical life care plan may sometimes be necessary to prove what you or a loved one may need for decades into the future.
Pain And Suffering
This is a type of non-economic damage that is often overlooked by many lawyers, but may be available in cases where the injury is particularly severe. These types of damages account for harms and losses like the loss of love, companionship, guidance and other significant losses. These dangers are often several multiples larger than the economic losses.
If your personal property was damaged in a Kansas City accident, you may be able to recover the cost of repairs or replacement.
In some cases, a personal injury accident can result in the death of the victim. If this happens, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages.
