What Damages Are Available in a Car Accident Lawsuit?

When you’ve been involved in a car accident, you understand the consequences can go far beyond your physical injuries. The economic burden of medical bills combined with lost wages can be difficult to handle. 

Fortunately, filing suit against the parties involved in your accident could allow you to recover compensation, or damages. So, what damages are available in a car accident lawsuit? Read on to learn more about the compensation you may be eligible for and how a Dallas car accident lawyer can help.

Types of Damages Available to Car Accident Lawsuit Plaintiffs

The two categories of damages in personal injury lawsuits are economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to specific or tangible losses, while non-economic damages are intangible and could be related more to lost opportunities or changes in quality of life. 

Some damages that could be available to you in a car accident suit include: 

  • Medical Bills–Any financial losses related to your accident, whether past, present, or future, could be recovered in a car accident lawsuit. Some examples include surgery costs, ambulance fees, or even long-term physical therapy. 
  • Lost Income–These damages could not only include the paychecks you’ve lost so far, but damages in view of decreased earning potential in the long run. 
  • Emotional Trauma–Some examples include loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, loss of spousal consortium, and other factors that influence your quality of life.
