Types of Personal Injury Damages

Personal injury can occur in many different situations. Whether you have been severely injured in a motor vehicle accident, 18-wheeler crash, drunk driving accident, workplace accident, or by the negligence of a doctor or other health care provider, you may be entitled to a recovery from the negligent party. Call the Houston personal injury trial lawyers at Wilhite & Associates, P.C. to assist you in establishing liability against the person or business that caused your losses. Once liability has been established, we will aggressively represent you to receive recovery for all of the types of losses you have incurred. Following are descriptions of some of the basic types of losses you may be entitled to recover.

Cost of Medical Bills

If you were treated in the ER and transported in an ambulance, the cost of your immediate emergency medical care is probably quite high. Follow up treatments with doctors, X-rays, MRI and CT scans, rehabilitation, prescription for medications, and surgery resulting from the injuries you sustained only adds to the financial burden. Even if you have health insurance, the uninsured medical expenses such as deductibles and co-pays can be overwhelming. You may also have various health care costs you will incur in the future, and it will be important for your attorney to discover from your doctors the likely future costs of your care so you receive the full measure of recovery from the defendant.

Lost Wages / Loss of Earning Capacity

Taking time off from work or losing your job as the result of your personal injury can have damaging results to your personal finances. Lost wages that are the result of the negligence of another are recoverable against the negligent party and their insurance company. Also, depending on the severity of the injuries you sustained your ability to continue to earn the level of income you made before the injury may be negatively affected. If you have been forced to take a lower paying job after an injury, contact the personal injury attorneys at Wilhite & Associates, P.C. for a free consultation today.

Disfigurement / Physical Impairment

The injury you sustained may also have caused you disfigurement. Common types of disfigurement include the following:

  • Severe Scars
  • Burn Injuries
  • Amputation of an arm or leg
  • Amputation of fingers or toes

In addition to disfigurement, you may also suffer from a physical impairment as a result of the negligence of another. Some forms of physical impairment are:

  • Paraplegia
  • Hemiplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of control of the bowels
  • Severe limp
  • Equilibrium and Balance Issues

Mental Anguish / Pain and Suffering

The damages you incur when you have been injured are not limited to physical injuries. Monetary compensation for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish resulting from your accident may also be recovered against the defendant and their insurance company. While it is difficult to put a dollar value on these types of damages, the payment of money is the best method our legal system can enforce in an attempt to make you whole after you have been injured.
