How do I know if I have a Personal Injury Claim?

If you were injured or lost a family member due to someone else’s carelessness, you are probably wondering whether you have a personal injury claim that can be pursued. In order to recover monetary compensation, your personal injury attorney must be able to define and prove three distinct components.

Three Basic Requirements for a Personal Injury Claim

1. The responsible party was negligent in the action in questions. For example, if a semi truck driver crashed into an innocent victim’s car because he or she ignored a red light, the driver of the 18 wheeler would be considered the negligent party.

2. The negligence caused the injury. In the above example, if the victim sustained a deep lacerations and debilitating migraines as a result of the crash, the truck driver’s negligence would be considered the catalyst resulting in personal injury.

3. The injury resulted in harm (compensatory damages). Once again looking at the above example, if the victim’s deep cuts and migraines resulted in medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, the injury would be considered to have resulted in compensatory damages, which are also covered.

How much is my Personal Injury Case Worth?

Most personal injury damages are classified as "compensatory," meaning that they are intended to compensate the injured plaintiff for what was lost due to the accident or injury. Some compensatory damages are relatively easy to quantify such as reimbursement for property damages, lost wages and medical bills incurred. It is more challenging to place a monetary value on pain and suffering or the inability to enjoy hobbies because of physical limitations caused by lingering accident injuries.

The different types of compensatory damages that are common in many personal injury cases:
  1. Medical treatment - A personal injury damages almost always include the cost of medical care associated with the accident and the rehabilitation following the crash or trauma. This includes reimbursement for treatment you've already received and compensation for the estimated cost of medical care you'll need in the future because of the accident.

  2. Current and Future Income - You may be entitled to compensation for the accident's impact on your salary and wages. This not only includes the income you've lost already but also the money you would have been able to make in the future, were it not for the accident, this is called lost earning capacity. 

  3. Property loss - If any automobiles, clothing, jewelry or other items were damaged because of the accident, you'll likely be entitled to compensation for the fair market value of the property that was lost.

  4. Pain and suffering - While it is sometimes challenging to quantify, you may be entitled to compensation for the pain and discomfort you suffered during the accident, its immediate aftermath and leading into the future.

  5. Emotional distress - Emotional distress damages are meant to compensate a personal injury victim for the psychological impact of a detrimental injury.  These emotional stress responses include, fear, anxiety, and sleep loss.

  6. Loss of enjoyment - When injuries caused by an accident keep you from enjoying your favorite hobbies, exercise regiments, and other recreational activities, you may be entitled to receive "loss of enjoyment" damages.

  7. Loss of consortium - In personal injury cases, "loss of consortium" damages speak to the impact the injuries have on the victims relationship with their spouse. For example this would look like the loss of companionship or the inability to maintain a sexual relationship. In some cases, loss of consortium damages are awarded directly to the affected family member rather than to the injured.
