Damages Available After a Motor Vehicle Accident
Car accident victims are typically entitled to receive compensatory damages, which fall into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are paid to make victims financially whole.
They’re awarded for things like:
Non-economic damages are paid to compensate for the consequences of an accident that aren’t easily valued in terms of dollars and cents.
This includes money for:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium, and
- Loss of quality of life.
Mission Personal Injury Lawyers will help you pursue a financial award that reflects the true value of your accident and injuries. How? By consulting with experts to make sure that we understand what happened, why, and who’s to blame. The better we understand your case, the better prepared we can be to secure substantial damages on your behalf.
How Sharing Fault Could Affect Your Ability to Recover Compensation
When you file an insurance claim or lawsuit after a traffic accident, there’s a good chance insurance companies and other parties will try to say that you’re (at least partly) to blame. These strategies, left unchecked, can absolutely have an effect on your ability to recover a financial award.
States all have different ways of handling contributory fault. Some states, like Alabama and Maryland, completely bar individuals from recovering compensation if they share any responsibility for an accident. Other states, like Texas and Pennsylvania, permit victims to recover a percentage of their damages, but only if they share some – and not most – of the blame. Many states, like California, permit victims to recover a percentage of their damages as long as they’re not 100% at fault.
Where you live and how much fault you’re allocated will have a huge impact on your personal injury case. Mission Personal Injury Lawyers will be ready to fend off these claims. Our car crash attorneys will fight to discredit these allegations or limit how much fault is ultimately assigned to you.
