If you have been wrongfully injured by a third party, you should be entitled to receive compensation for your accident-related expenses from the at fault party. These typically include:

  • Medical expenses: Any medical care, treatment, medication, and equipment necessary for your recovery should be covered. This includes hospitalization costs, surgeries, physical therapy, ongoing care, and more. We will fight to obtain compensation for any potential future medical expenses that be needed as well.
  • Lost wages: If you are forced to take time off of work—or even quit your job entirely—in order to heal from your injuries, we will seek compensation to cover any income you normally would have made were you able to continue working.
  • Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering is a category of non-economic damages that covers losses that don’t have a price tag. These may include physical and mental pain and anguish you have suffered due to your wrongful injury. These damages depend on the nature and severity of the injury. The more severe and long-term the injury, the higher pain and suffering damages will likely be.
  • Property damage repair/replacement: If any of your property was damaged in the accident—a vehicle, cell phone, expensive watches or jewelry, etc.—you have the right to seek compensation to repair or replace your lost items.
  • Other necessary expenses: By saving all receipts, bills, and other documentation related to your accident and recovery, you may be able to recover damages for other expenses. These vary on a case-by-case basis but may include reimbursement for transportation and other relevant costs.

An attorney will help you determine which of the above apply to you as well as how much you are eligible to receive.


Solid grounds for a filing a personal injury lawsuit include the following:

  1. Proof that the other party owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a responsibility to act in a manner that didn’t put you in danger or cause you injury
  2. Proof that the other party breached that duty of care by acting in a negligent or intentionally dangerous manner
  3. Proof that you were injured as a result of their negligence and that you suffered specific damages (either economic or non-economic) as a result of their actions

If you are able to present the above elements before a judge, the odds are your personal injury case will be resolved favorably.
