Types Of Car Accident Compensation

Understanding The Compensation You Can Get

While an exact dollar figure cannot be determined until Chris L. Knight thoroughly reviews your case, you can learn more about the various types of compensation you may be entitled to. The legal term for compensation awarded in a personal injury case is damages.

Medical compensation: This is compensation to cover your medical bills, including those you have already accumulated and those for any future treatment.

Wage loss compensation: This is compensation for the paychecks you are losing because your serious injury has caused you to miss work. If you are unable to return to work or must take a lower paying job because of the severity of your injuries, you may receive additional compensation for the impairment of earning capacity.

Pain and suffering compensation: This is compensation for the mental and physical pain and suffering you have gone through as a result of the car crash.

Permanent disability or disfigurement compensation: This is compensation for those injuries that will not heal. Permanent disability can include everything from limited shoulder range of motion to paralysis. Disfigurement may include scarring and loss of limb.

Property damage compensation: This is compensation for the damage to or loss of your vehicle in the auto wreck, and may also include other property that was in the vehicle.

Punitive damages: This is money paid by the negligent party, typically if a law was broken leading to the motor vehicle accident. This is often paid out in drunk driving cases.
