Types of Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim
Personal Injury Claim Types of Compensation
If you have been injured in a personal injury case, such as a motor vehicle collision, you may seek compensation from whoever caused your injuries or is at-fault. This type of compensation being pursued is generally referred to as “damages”.

- Compensation for the cost of medical treatment caused by the injuries suffered
- Future medical treatment and costs causally related to the injury
- Lost wages or lost income

If you or a loved one has been involved in an auto accident, you need the assistance of an auto accident lawyer if another driver caused the accident and you or your family member suffered injury or damage to your property. Insurance adjusters work for the insurance company and will attempt to save that insurance company as much money as possible.
Internal studies of the insurance companies studies have shown that when an accident victim is being assisted by an attorney, the average payout is approximately three times in comparison to when the accident victim attempts to represent him or herself.
