A car accident can be a very traumatic event when serious injuries are suffered as a result of the accident. Medical bills can quickly become exceedingly expensive, and lives can be disrupted as a result of injuries. An individual who has been injured in an accident may choose to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to recover damages, including:
- Medical expenses, such as hospital bills, prescription medications, and rehabilitation;
- Property damage to the vehicle involved in the accident;
- Lost wages suffered as a result of missing work because of the accident and loss of future earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering experienced during the accident and in the future as a result of injuries; and
- Emotional distress resulting from the accident, such as insomnia, depression, or anxiety.
Punitive damages may also be available when the at-fault driver’s behavior was especially reprehensible. Such damages seek to punish the at-fault driver for his actions, deter similar behavior in the future, and compensate the victim for damages incurred as a result of such egregious behavior.
