The laws that govern car accidents and personal injury claims differ from state to state. In Virginia and many of the surrounding states, when a driver causes an accident because of negligence, reckless or malicious behavior, they may be obligated to pay for the injuries and damages of other people involved in the accident. Some of the damages that a car accident victim and/or their family (the plaintiff) might seek compensation from the perpetrator of the accident (the defendant) for, include but are not limited to the following:
– Emergency room costs
– Medical expenses
– Hospital costs
– Prescription medications and over the counter drugs
– Loss of income
– Rehabilitation costs (that may include residential and long-term care)
– Loss of abilities
– Pain and emotional suffering
– Funeral costs
– Loss of benefits
– Loss of consortium (loss of spousal support)
– Loss of child care or household management.
Many people who have been injured in an accident are not familiar with the recovery processes of different injuries and accident related problems, nor are their families. Unless a person’s been in a debilitating accident before, they are not likely to know about the financial repercussions someone else’s negligent or careless actions have the potential to have on them. This is one of the many reasons people feel better when they know they have an experienced personal injury law firm looking out for them.
