Types of Compensation Available for Personal Injuries

When another person or company is liable for an individual’s injury, that individual may receive different types of compensation, or damages. Such damage awards may cover economic losses as well as intangible harm such as pain. An experienced Atlanta injury lawyer could help an injured individual recover the compensation they deserve.

In cases where the personal injury is due to serious wrongdoing that a juror believes they must deter in the future, they may grant a punitive damage award to serve as a warning to others.

In many cases, the injured party may recover compensation for:

  • Past medical bills
  • Future anticipated medical expenses
  • Modifications needed to accommodate the injury
  • Damage to property
  • Lost wages in the past and anticipated in the future
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

Causes of Personal Injuries in Atlanta

While there are infinite ways someone may suffer an injury, some are more common than others. For instance, accidents involving motor vehicles such as cars, trucks, and buses often cause serious injuries that may result in compensation. Car accidents in particular are a common–and often especially dangerous–type of personal injury case. Whether you were hit by someone who was driving drunk, ran a red light, or was just momentarily distracted by a text message, any negligent act by a vehicle operator that leads to a crash could result in devastating injuries, as well as grounds for a civil lawsuit.

Accidents due to negligence in the workplace or in a public place such as a store also can result in injury claims. A customer might trip over a hazard on a floor or an employee might suffer an injury from equipment that is not properly inspected or maintained.

Injuries due to negligence in the medical field are also common. A doctor may fail to pay adequate attention to symptoms or a pharmacist may prescribe a medication in the wrong strength. Even in a nursing home, a patient may fall due to negligence.

Other common causes of injury in personal injury lawsuits include dog bites, foreseeable criminal attacks, drunk drivers, and defective products. If an injury was the result of a failure to exercise reasonable care, a person may be able to obtain compensation from the negligent party with the help of an Atlanta injury lawyer.
