Massachusetts Personal Injury Damages
If you have recently been involved in a Massachusetts personal injury accident you likely have many questions about what to do next. One of those questions may be what money damages you are entitled to. There are many factors that determine the value of a personal injury claim. Regardless if it was a car accident, slip and fall, truck accident, dog bite, construction accident, or any other type of personal injury case, you have the right to collect money damages. As a Boston, MA personal injury lawyer, my job is to make sure the insurance company pays you fully for all damages you suffer. Here are some damages you may be entitled to:
Payment For Your Medical Bills
If someone negligently injures you, you likely will be faced with large medical bills. Whether it be an ambulance ride, hospital visit, physical therapist, chiropractor, orthopedist, or any other medical provider, you are going to be racking up medical bills. We make sure the insurance company compensates you fully for all of your medical bills related to the accident.
Payment For Your Lost Wages
If the Massachusetts personal injury accident caused you to miss time from work, that too is reimbursable. The insurance company for the person or company that caused your accident is responsible to pay you for your past lost wages, as well as your future lost wages.
Payment For Pain And Suffering
Medical bill and lost wage damages are generally called special damages as they can be quantified with relative accuracy. Massachusetts pain and suffering damages on the other hand are called general damages. Unlike medical bills and lost wages, pain and suffering damages are harder to quantify. Putting a money value on a person’s physical and mental pain and distress is an inexact science at best. It is this element of damages that personal injury lawyers and insurance adjusters most frequently disagree over, which is what spawns most personal injury lawsuits.
