When an individual becomes injured due to the negligence of another party, they may want to know what their legal options are in New York State. Bringing a personal injury lawsuit against a liable party can allow the victim to recover significant damages if negligence can be proven. In a personal injury case, there are two types of potential damages that one may be able to recover.
Economic damages consist of compensation for the financial burdens that the injured party has faced as a direct result of the accident. These can include anything from medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation, lost wages due to time out of work, future lost wages, and more. Before pursuing a personal injury case, the injured party should be sure to collect all information about the financial burdens that were caused by the accident.
Some personal injury cases may allow the victim to recover compensation for burdens they faced that were non-financial. Noneconomic damages can include pain and suffering, loss of relationship, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of independence, and more.
If you have been injured as a result of another person’s negligence, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney.
