What Are Damages and Why Do Personal Injury Lawyers Fight to Recover Them?

If you suffered injuries in an accident in Texas, you likely have a lot of expenses and losses you sustained because of the accident. These losses are your damages. Under the state’s negligence laws, you may qualify to recover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages from the party who was at fault. A personal injury attorney can help you file a claim to pursue damages.

Why Do Personal Injury Attorneys Fight to Recover Damages?

The goal of a personal injury attorney is to pursue the recovery their client deserves after an auto accident, slip-and-fall, dog bite, or other negligence accident. Because of the accident, their client suffered damages usually in the form of medical bills, time away from work, and other expenses. Their client and their family did nothing wrong to cause their own injuries, yet they are forced to pay untold thousands of dollars because of it to cover expenses.

Recovering damages for a client should compensate them for what they spent and the time lost, as well as their pain and suffering. This is the only way allowable under the law to hold the negligent party accountable for the inconvenience and expense they caused you.

Common Damages After a Personal Injury Accident

Every case is different, and there is no way to know how much your case might be worth before a full investigation and learning more about the damages you suffered. There are many factors that go into calculating the value of a personal injury case. Contact us to find out what your damages are and why our personal injury lawyers will fight to recover them for you.

Some of the most common damages victims of personal injury accidents in Texas may be able to recover include:

  • Medical care costs including: ambulance transportation, inpatient care, follow-up care, rehabilitation and therapy, and other related expenses.
  • Lost wages and benefits, as well as diminished earning capacity if they cannot return to work because of their injuries.
  • Property damages, including vehicle replacement and repair or replacement of personal items damaged in the incident.
  • Out-of-pocket costs related to injuries, repairs, or the accident.
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other non-economic losses.

If your loved one passed away because of the injuries they suffered in a personal injury accident, you may also be eligible to pursue damages in a wrongful death case. This type of recovery goes to the immediate family of the deceased and helps cover damages such as the cost of the funeral and burial.
