Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Case

When you have been injured in an accident, you may want to bring a lawsuit against the other party and sue them for damages. There are a lot of different damages that may be recoverable in your personal injury case. It is important to note that you will need an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you in your New Jersey accident case to work towards obtaining the best possible award that may be available to you.
Generally, upon being injured in an accident, you will have a lot of bills related to your injuries. Of course, the more severe the injury, the higher your injury bills will be. You may need multiple surgeries, months of rehabilitation, and a regiment of pain management medications just to get by. You may no longer be able to go about your daily life the way you once could. Gone may be the days of running, hiking, or playing catch with your kids. You may need to hire outside help just to do simple tasks like clean the house or go to the store.
These can be broken into economic damages and non-economic damages. However, you can recover compensation for both. Economic damages would be the medical bills while non-economic damages would include loss of enjoyment of life. You should speak with your attorney to determine what your chances of recovering damages are, even if you were partially at fault for causing the accident.
