Compensation Available After a Car Crash

The Gatti Law Firm

lawyer shaking a client's handAfter you suffer injuries in a car accident resulting from someone else’s negligence, you are bound to have many questions about your rights moving forward. You may experience significant financial losses resulting from the injury and property damage. As such, you may have questions, particularly, “how am I going to pay for everything?”

You must recognize what type of compensation may be available to you.

What are Economic Losses?

Economic losses are those that have a monetary value you can use to prove your needs in your claim. For instance, your medical expenses are an economic loss. You pay for the care you need, and you receive a receipt detailing how much you paid for the care.

The courts can use that amount as a base point for economic damages. You can also claim income losses, the cost of property damage, and any other direct monetary loss as part of your claim. We’ll fight to recoup the entire amount lost.

What are Non-Economic Losses?

While non-economic losses are more challenging to determine, they are vital to your car accident claim. Most of your recovery will come from non-economic losses because they relate to pain and suffering, and any other damage you sustain without a direct monetary value.

Your mental anguish can factor into how much you may recover in non-economic damages.

What are Punitive Damages?

Punitive damages are different from economic and non-economic losses. These types of damages are not common and serve more as a punishment for the negligent party than as an award for your damages.

Punitive damages come into play when the defendant acts with malice. They intentionally cause you harm with their actions.

At The Gatti Law Firm, we’ll look at every aspect of your case to determine what damages you may seek. We’ll build a case focused on all losses to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. Trust in our Salem car accident attorneys to help you from start to finish.
