What compensation may I be entitled to?
When you have suffered a personal injury due to someone's negligence, there are different types of damages that you can be compensated for. First, you can receive compensation related to the bodily injuries you sustain, both physical and mental. Second, you can receive compensation for any damage you sustain to your personal property. Finally, there are punitive damages, which are damages that punish the person or company causing your injury for reckless/grossly negligent actions (i.e. violation of laws, driving under the influence, etc.) Punitive damages can be given in relation to the bodily injuries and/or the damage to personal property.
Bodily injury compensation can include:
medical expenses, lost wages, future medical expenses, permanent injuries and scarring, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity and future wages, punitive damages or wrongful death of a family member.
Property damage compensation can include: repair of property, value of property if a total loss, devaluation of property and punitive damages.
