What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury case is a type of civil action where the plaintiff (the injured party) seeks to hold the defendant (the at-fault party) liable for the harm they’ve suffered as a result of the defendant’s actions. There are four elements to a successful personal injury claim:
- Breach of duty
In order to win a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care, breached the duty by doing something negligent or careless and that their injuries would not have occurred but for the defendant’s negligence. Finally, the plaintiff must also be able to prove that they have suffered actual damages as a result.
Damages Recoverable in a Personal Injury Claim
By filing a personal injury claim, a claimant can seek damages–or monetary compensation–for their losses. Types of damages that are recoverable in a personal injury suit include compensation for:
Injuries are expensive to treat. Through a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for the full value of your medical expenses and expected future medical expenses.
Often, injuries are so severe that they prevent a person from working, sometimes long-term or permanently. If you have been injured and have suffered lost wages, you should be compensated in full for these losses and any loss of earning capacity.
Property damage costs.
If any personal property was damaged during the accident–for example, a car if you were in a car accident–you should be compensated for this in full.
Pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
The above damages types are all economic damages–that is, they compensate you for out-of-pocket, countable financial losses. In addition to economic damages, though, you should also be compensated for noneconomic damages such as the value of your pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
