There are several stresses that result from being a victim of a personal injury. For instance, suffering lost wages and future loss of earning capacity is often a huge issue for personal injury victims, especially those who are heads of households and high wage-earners. To make things more difficult, receiving monetary compensation for pain and suffering, whether physical or mental, can be difficult under the law. There are other non-economic injuries that a person may experience as a result of an accident such as loss of capacity for enjoyment of life.
A victim injured in a Lauderhill personal injury accident may be entitled to recover damages, or monetary compensation for injuries suffered. Generally, there are two types of damages available to a personal injury plaintiff - economic and noneconomic. Economic damages are meant to make the person whole again and include recovering expenses related to medical treatment for injuries resulting from the accident as well as lost income (both past and future), and any other financial losses suffered by the injured party. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, may include compensation for any pain and suffering (both past and future) the injured victim may have experienced as a result of the accident.
Some of the types of personal injury accidents that our firm handles include slip, trip, and falls; motorcycle accidents; bicycle accidents; truck/bus accidents; pedestrian accidents; boating/cruise ship accidents; nursing home abuse; and construction accidents.Contact a Lauderhill Personal Injury Attorney
