Many types of injury can throw your life out of whack. When someone else is the culprit, you can file a personal injury claim with the help of a Savannah injury lawyer in order to recover compensable damages, such as medical bills and lost income. 

Read on to learn more about the types of personal injury cases we cover at The Nye Law Group. 

Types of Personal Injuries Our Firm Covers

You can get in an accident anywhere, at any time. However, not all accidents qualify for personal injury litigation. 

In order to file a claim to recover monetary compensation for the losses you’ve suffered, you need to establish the relationship between the components of a personal injury claim. 

These are: 

  • Duty of Care – The party responsible for your injuries owed you a duty of care for your safety. 

  • Breach of Care – Through their own careless actions or inactions, they failed to comply with the obligation to keep you safe. 

  • Causation – The breach of care has to be the reason for the injuries you suffered in an accident. For example, if your injuries were unrelated to the accident you suffered, you wouldn’t have a case. 

  • Actual Damages – Finally, you have to be able to prove your injuries caused actual damages. 

As long as these conditions are met, you could file a civil claim against the responsible party in order to recover compensation, either via a settlement or a jury verdict. 

Some of the most common types of personal injury cases involve:

  • Car accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Boat accidents

  • Uber and Lyft accidents

  • Wrongful death claims

  • Product liability cases

  • Nursing home abuse

  • Dog bites

  • Negligent security cases

  • And many others

An injury can bring your entire life to a screeching halt. After an injury, all you want is for your life to return to normal. 

Although there are aspects of your injuries that may never heal, an experienced attorney can fight to see you receive fair and just compensation for all the ways your life is negatively affected by the incident. 

Types of Damages You Can Recover

There are two main types of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim: economic and non-economic. 

Economic damages relate to the monetary or financial losses you suffer after being involved in an accident. 

One of the most important examples of these are medical bills. After an accident, there are many aspects of the treatment process that can be costly, even if you have health insurance. 

By filing a claim, you can recover money for:

  • Hospital bills

  • Emergency room fees

  • Ambulance fees

  • Surgery

  • Outpatient therapy

Notably, you can also recover compensation for your lost present and future income. 

On the non-economic side, filing a claim could see you recover money for losses such as emotional distress and pain and suffering. 

Ask an attorney for help figuring all of the types of damages that could correspond to you.
