Auto accident injuries come with financial and personal costs. The consequences of your injuries may not be immediately clear. Facing an uncertain future, you may be wondering what types of damages you can received through your car accident claim, and whether it is worth pursuing during this difficult time. If you have been seriously injured in an auto accident, do not leave your fate in the hands of the insurance company. Talk to experienced Georgia auto accident attorney Laurie Robbins to learn the truth about the types of damages that you and your family can recover.
Common Car Accident Damages
If you were seriously injured in a car accident, you face immediate expenses and losses, as well as future expenses and losses. The long-term costs of your injuries can prove to be far greater than the initial costs. Each case is unique. Common damages in car accident claims include:
- Existing and future medical expenses
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Home health care
- Custodial care
- Special equipment and home modifications to accommodate disability
- Existing and future lost income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Diminished quality of life
Compensation for Your Spouse
Depending on the circumstances in your case, your spouse may be able to recover for loss of consortium. Loss of consortium is the harm your spouse suffers as a result of your injuries. It includes the burden of taking over tasks and responsibilities that you are no longer able to perform, whether permanently or temporarily. And, it includes loss of companionship, love, affection, comfort, and intimacy.
