Examples of Personal Injury Cases

An accident can happen at any time. When someone else is responsible for your injuries due to their own carelessness, you could be eligible to recover financial compensation through a personal injury settlement. 

But what kind of injuries qualify as personal injury, and what kind of compensation can you receive? 

Read on to learn more about personal injury, and don’t hesitate to reach out to a West Palm Beach injury lawyer who can help you maximize your settlement. 

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

In theory, anyone who’s been injured and suffered damages as the result of another person’s careless actions could file a personal injury claim to demand compensation. 

In reality, certain types of claims are more common than others. Some of the most frequent forms of personal injury litigation involve:

  • Car accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Dog bite accidents

  • Product liability cases

  • Medical malpractice cases

  • Slip-and-fall accidents

Regardless of the type of accident you’ve suffered, an experienced attorney wants to help you file a claim to maximize your compensation. 

Working with an attorney is important because the insurance companies train insurance adjusters to look for ways to discount the value of your injuries, economic losses, and emotional damages in a personal injury claim. 

This is because the less money the insurance company pays out to settle accident claims like your own, the less money they lose overall. 

Consulting an attorney with experience dealing with the insurance companies could help you overcome the difficulties of working with the insurance adjusters—and even help you secure maximum compensation for your injuries. 

Compensation You Can Receive in a Personal Injury Case

Your potential personal injury settlement can be made up of both economic and non-economic damages. 

Economic damages refers to specific financial losses, while non-economic damages are often less tangible in nature, or focus on emotional losses you may have suffered after your accident. 

Some examples of the damages you can receive in a personal injury settlement include compensation for:

  • Lost income

  • Medical bills

  • Pain and suffering

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

  • Mental anguish

  • And much more

Lost income can refer to either present or future losses. For example, missing time away from work can lead to loss of income through missed normal work hours. However, future lost income could refer to loss of earning potential in a long-run scenario. 

If your injuries prevent you from returning to the same line of work as you had before, this could negatively impact your future ability to earn money—something that can be taken into consideration in your personal injury compensation. 

Consulting an experienced lawyer can help you secure fair compensation for present and future lost income.
