Spartanburg Personal Injury Attorney Helps With Your Claims

What Expenses Can My Personal Injury Claim Cover?

Accidents happen — it's a fact of life. However, if you suffered injury due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Typical personal injury cases include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, defective products, dangerous premises and the like.

Adding a legal issue to your problems isn't easy, but sometimes it's necessary in order to recoup your losses. Medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering can cost you a lot — and you need to focus on your recovery. Spartanburg personal injury lawyer David Yokel has years of experience protecting his clients' rights. Contact him today to find out what he can do for you.

Types of Losses in Personal Injury Cases

Everyone's case is unique. However, personal injury cases generally fall under three types of losses:

  • Economic losses
  • Future economic losses
  • Compensation for the injury itself

These are called compensatory damages, and cover a wide variety of expenses. Some are relatively simple to figure out — but some are not so easy.

Economic losses may include:

  • Medical care and related expenses
  • Costs for over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs
  • Lost wages from time off work
  • Childcare or home upkeep costs
  • Mileage to and from hospital or doctor
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Future medical care, medications and therapy
  • Long-term care

Non-economic damages may include:

  • Permanent disability
  • Impact on activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Loss of social or educational experience
  • Emotional damages
  • Pain and suffering
