Can I Recover Medical Bills in My Waycross Personal Injury Case?

Posted on February 11, 2016

The answer is: “Yes, if you win your case.”

If you have been injured by the careless, negligent, or intentional act of another party, you can file a personal injury claim for any of the following damages:

  • Current medical bills: Bills resulting from the initial injury.
  • Future medical bills: If the initial injury requires treatment in the future.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional stress caused by the accident and injury.
  • Lost wages: You can sue for whatever income you lost due to your injury.
  • Property loss or damage: In a car accident, this would be the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle.
  • Emotional distress: When the impact of an accident or injury goes beyond the physical and makes a negative emotional impact on a victim. For instance, if after a dog bite a person develops an irrational fear of all dogs.
  • Permanent injury or disability: If an injury is not able to completely heal and has a permanent impact on your life.

These are a few of the basic damages one can claim in a personal injury lawsuit. Of course, you have to “win” the lawsuit to be awarded these damages. As a plaintiff in a personal injury case, you will likely be dealing with the defendant’s lawyers and insurance company. These people are experts when it comes to shooting down a plaintiff’s charges. The best way to combat them is by arming yourself with your own lawyer.
