Which damages can help me receive a claim?

In Brooklyn, one can claim compensation under two types of damages – economic and non-economic damages. In select personal injury cases, punitive compensations might also be on the table.

What are economic damages?

Under economic damages, one can claim the financial costs, losses, or expenses related to a car accident. If you claim monetary damages, you will financially be in the same position as before the accident. The various types include:

  • Current medical expenses (including, but not limited to, transportation to the hospital, diagnostic tests, surgery, medication, and a hospital stay)
  • Future medical bills (including follow-up care, medical devices, and equipment)
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Nursing care
  • The expense of replacing or repairing damaged property
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Temporary or permanent disability, and
  • Lost income and wages.
  • Lost income and wages.

What are non-economic damages?

Not all injuries or consequences have a set financial value. Your lawyer’s work also includes to look after the non-economic compensations. If you are experiencing unbearable physical pain, mental torture, or limitations in living your life normally, you can claim non-economic damage. Brooklyn does not have a cap on non-economic awards. However, valuation is often closely associated with the value of economic damages. The injuries covered are:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Depression, PTSD, and anxiety
  • Disfigurement
  • Scarring
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of quality of life, and
  • Embarrassment.

What are punitive damages?

Punitive damages are claimed for one purpose – to punish the defendant for conduct that’s particularly reprehensible. However, these are reserved for situations when they’re warranted. To claim punitive compensation, the victim should prove that the defendant acted with a “high degree of moral turpitude” or “willful or wanton negligence.” Mere carelessness is not enough.

  • Move Over and Away: Move to a safe location so that you are not injured if approaching vehicles cannot stop and there’s another accident.
  • Call the Police: An officer will be sent to the scene to conduct a short investigation and fill out an incident report. The details documented in the information might be critically crucial down the line. Failing to report your accident can put your ability to recover compensation in jeopardy.
  • Seek Medical Attention: Ensure that you get to the doctor as soon as you can after an accident. If your injuries are critical, you don’t have to wait for the police to arrive. Prompt medical care is essential for your health. The sooner your injuries are treated, the better.
  • Don’t Admit Fault or Apologize: Accepting blame or apologizing after an accident may make things worse for your auto accident injury claim. The other driver, passengers, and insurance companies can use your apology as an admission of fault and deny (or minimize) your compensation claim.
  • Contact our experienced team of Brooklyn personal injury lawyers immediately after calling 911 with any questions you may have.

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

Serious team effort from the entire staff to get my work injury case resolved quickly. They built a strong case and kept me in the loop for the duration. This team also delivered on two previous occasions and did it in a very cost-effective way. A faithful customer for life thank you!

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
