What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect on My Manhattan Personal Injury Claim?
Recovery in a personal injury case comes in the form of money damages. You receive compensation for the amount of damages you suffered. This amount is negotiated with the insurance company or, if the parties don’t settle, decided by a judge or jury following a trial. Damages in a Manhattan personal injury case are divided into two broad categories called economic damages and non-economic damages. Both types of damages are “compensatory,” meaning they are meant to compensate you for the harm you suffered. In some cases, punitive damages might be appropriate as well. Punitive damages are not compensatory but instead are meant to punish the negligent party for especially wrongful behavior. Examples of the categories of compensatory damages are shown below.
Past and future medical expenses, including doctor and hospital bills, prescription medicines, physical therapy, home health equipment, and rehabilitation
Lost wages or income for days you missed from work due to the accident
Diminished earning capacity if you are partially or permanently disabled from working because of the accident, either temporarily or permanently
Property damage, such as the cost to repair or replace your vehicle
- Pain and Suffering
