Pursuit of appropriate damages after a car accident

On Behalf of | Jan 24, 2022 | Car Accidents

Victims of motor vehicle crashes that are the fault of another party often have grounds to pursue compensation through a civil claim. These claims allow a Delaware victim to seek damages and recompense for various losses they experience because of the car accident, including immediate losses and potential long-term expenses. When considering a claim, it will be helpful to first determine the amount of damages that could be available. 

How much is a claim worth?

The amount of damages available to a claimant depends on several factors, including the types of injuries suffered, the extent of property damage and the long-term effects of the accident. Some of the most common types of damages available to a car accident victim may include: 

  • Recovery of medical expenses 
  • Compensation for emotional and mental duress 
  • Recuperation of lost wages from missed work 
  • Damages for loss of consortium, enjoyment of life or earning capacity 
  • Coverage of future potential medical expenses 
  • Damages for permanent disability 

A careful evaluation of the car accident and an independent medical assessment are crucial components of a strong personal injury claim, and these are the two first steps in the process of seeking a full and fair recovery. 

Don’t leave money on the table

After a car accident, a victim may find it helpful to turn to an experienced Delaware personal injury attorney for guidance and support. With help, a claimant will have a stronger chance of securing the compensation he or she deserves. These cases are time-sensitive, and quick action is important.
