What are Damages in a Personal Injury Case?
“Damages” is a term used to refer to the collective economic and non-economic losses resulting from an accident or injury.
Some examples of common damages in personal injury cases include:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical care costs
- Medical equipment and devices
- Prescription medications
- Lost income, wages, and benefits
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earning capacity
- Diminished quality/enjoyment of life
Our Midland personal injury attorneys can review the details of your case to determine which types of damages you may be entitled to receive, as well as the overall potential value of your claim. We do not charge anything for initial consultations and case evaluations, and we only collect legal fees if/when we recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
Proving Liability in Your Personal Injury Case
To have a valid personal injury case, you must prove that someone else—whether another person, a business or company, a manufacturer, a government agency, or some other entity—is responsible for your injuries and resulting damages.
To prove liability in your personal injury case, you (or your attorney) will need to demonstrate the following:
- You were injured.
- You sustained measurable losses or damages.
- Defendant owed you a duty of care.
- Defendant failed to uphold or breached the duty of care.
- Defendant’s negligent act/omission or intentional conduct was the cause of your injury.
Often, the duty of care is implied. For example, all motorists must exercise due care when sharing the road with others. They have a legal responsibility to obey the law, drive with care, and prevent foreseeable injury to others. This is the duty of care, and a motorist who drives recklessly or carelessly has breached it. When they cause accidents, they can be held accountable for victims’ injuries and damages.
Everything else is more difficult to prove. Our team can draw upon decades of collective legal and practice experience, though, to find evidence that helps build your claim. Everything from police reports to medical records and photographs can be helpful.
