The first priority, after suffering a personal injury, should be one’s health: physical and emotional recovery. When suffering an injury due to another’s negligence, or careless behavior, compensation is available by negotiating a settlement or filing a “third party claim” lawsuit in civil court.
There are many kinds of injuries that may not be immediately apparent after an accident. Some silent injuries may cause long term impairment or even death if not diagnosed and treated properly.
Personal injuries occur in a wide variety of ways, but the majority are handled the same way. If you have suffered injuries you can recover two types of damages.
- Economic, such as lost wages, rehab, therapy, medical expenses, and other monetary losses due to the incident.
- Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, mental stress and other impacts on your personal life and relationships.
