When you’ve been hurt by someone else’s negligence, you need help. Medical bills and missed income pile up, and you need finances to stay afloat.
A personal injury lawsuit can pay you back for the money spent or lost during your recovery. It can cover all your medical bills and replace the income you missed. This may include any lost “potential” income, which is any promotions or career advancements you missed because of your injuries.
You may also be eligible for pain and suffering damages. This is extra money to compensate you for your misery. It is there to help you adjust as you recover.
Moreover, in cases where the defendant’s actions were willfully or grossly negligent, the court may order them to give you punitive damages. This extra expense is strictly to punish the defendant for their actions.
