Assessing the Damages After an Auto Accident

The complexities of an auto accident and the confusion in the days following is exhausting. Trying to keep track of bills, repairs and doctors’ visits can be overwhelming and the stress can be multiplied when you don’t have your trusted mode of transportation to get you around. All these aspects of the aftermath of an auto accident are part of your claim! There are several types of damages that may be compensated for in an auto accident case.

Types of damage include:

  • Medical Expenses: These are often the most significant portion of your accident claim and may include hospitalization, follow-up visits, physical therapy and prescription coverage. It is important to keep track of all doctor bills, diagnosis records, prescription receipts, and physical therapy treatment bills and reports.
  • Property Damage: This includes damage to your vehicle and any other personal property involved in the accident. Repairs to the vehicle can be expensive, so be sure to keep all your records, invoices and subsequent rental vehicle bills. You can also catalog what was in the vehicle if anything of value was damaged during the accident.
  • Lost Wages and Lost Earning Capacity: If you are required to stay home from work during your recovery, your lost wages can be included in compensation. If your car accident causes a disability, an economic expert can help you calculate how your earning capacity will be compromised due to the accident.
  • Pain and Suffering: If your accident has caused significant emotional trauma, physical pain or psychological trauma, you can sometimes include counseling, psychiatric care or pain management in the compensation you are seeking.
