What is the Purpose of an Injury Lawsuit/Claim?

The purpose of an injury lawsuit is to allow an injured party to collect damages or financial compensation from the party that caused the injury.

Medical Bills

If you are hurt in an accident, and another party is at fault, you are entitled to be compensated for medical expenses that came from your injury. These expenses include doctor and hospital bills. Additionally, the costs may consist of visits to physical and occupational therapists, medications, future medical treatments, medical equipment, and other medical expenses incurred from the injury.


Lost Wages

If you are spending most of your time at doctor’s appointments, this limits your ability to work. In fact, a life-changing injury may require that you retrain for a new profession. Under personal injury law, you are entitled to recover damages for lost wages. If your injury keeps you out of your current job, the amount of money that you are entitled to may be considerable.


Pain and Suffering

You may be entitled to recover damages for the pain and suffering you experienced as a result of the accident.


Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are considered punishment to the person or group who caused your injury.
