The legal definition of personal injury refers to any injury to a person's mind, body, or emotions. A personal injury accident can include anything from a traffic accident to a medical malpractice incident, but regardless of the cause of the personal injury, the result of the accident can severely impact the life of a victim. Being involved in any kind of accident that causes you harm can be devastating and the recovery process can often be long and difficult, but the excellent news is you do not have to go through it alone.
In the event another party's negligence was the cause of your personal injury, an experienced Warren personal injury lawyer at Lipton Law can help you obtain the compensation you need to rebuild your life.
Why Pursue a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury accident can have devastating results for the victim, and even the most minor of injuries can cost a person a significant amount in medical bills and care, as well as result in a lengthy recovery time. In addition, the effects of a personal injury accident can impact a person's quality of life, not leaving him or her able to do the activities they once enjoyed or affecting the ability to do normal everyday tasks. The road to recovery can be tough, and though the last thing you may want to do is pursue a personal injury claim, obtaining compensation can be an important part of recovery. Receiving compensation can help you pay for accident-related costs, which will allow you to focus on healing and alleviate the financial stresses that often accompany an unexpected accident.
Types of Compensation You Can Receive
The benefit of filing a personal injury claim is the financial relief it can provide for an accident victim, and there are different reasons why a person can be awarded compensation. Economic damages are one form of compensation that can be given to a claimant, and these are damages that can be easily calculated from documents, records, or paperwork. These damages can include compensation for medical bills, loss of wages, or repair to personal property. Non-economic damages typically refer to a person's pain and suffering, and damages can be given for things like an accident victim's emotional distress and mental suffering.
