The Answer Differs Significantly from One Accident to Another

Of course, there is no simple formula in which you can insert certain types of injuries and be given a specific amount that your accident case is worth. So much matters, including whether it was the at-fault party’s fault 100% or if you were or another party was partially responsible, the long-term costs and effects of your injuries, the type of property damage, and more. We will go cover the basic types of damages to help you understand what you may be eligible to receive compensation for.

Potential Economic Damages

If your property was damaged during the accident then you may be eligible to be reimbursed for said property damage. For example, if you were in a car accident and your vehicle was damaged or totaled then you would be eligible to be compensated for said damage. You will need to provide evidence of the damage.

You can also sue for additional economic damages include medical care and missed time from work. Your medical care would be calculated by looking at your medical bills and your doctor or other medical expert’s best estimate of future medical costs related to the accident. Your missed time from work would include actual lost wages as well as reimbursement for any benefits you used for pay while out of work, such as PTO or sick days. If you cannot work for a long period of time or ever again, then you may be eligible for additional compensation.

Potential Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages can be challenging to calculate because they are not based on specific bills as economic damages are. For example, pain and suffering is generally compensated by looking at the economic damages and multiplying them by a certain multiplier. For example, a person who has had a three-year recovery from a serious head trauma is likely to have a larger multiplier than a person who suffered a broken bone that healed in eight weeks.
