Damages in a NJ Personal Injury Case

When an individual is injured in an accident, whether it be a motor vehicle accident, a supermarket accident, a slip and fall accident, or an accident of any other type, they may wonder if they are entitled to compensation. After an accident, individuals are often faced with significant burdens that are both financial and non-financial in nature. When the victim of someone else’s negligence decides to bring a personal injury case against the person who caused the accident, they may be able to recover significant damages.

Economic Damages

After an accident, the injured party may be able to bring a case that can allow them to recover damages for the financial burdens that were caused by the accident. Some of these may include:

  • Medical bills, including hospitalization, the initial emergency room visit, surgeries, tests, treatments, medication, and more
  • Lost wages due to time out of work
  • The cost of rehabilitation and physical therapy

Non-economic Damages

In an accident, the victim may also suffer from other burdens that are unrelated to economic matters. Non-economic damages often include the following:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of independence
  • Pain and suffering
  • The inability to do certain activities that one could do before the accident
