What damages can I claim in a personal injury case?
When you’re injured because of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to be responsible for the medical bills and other financial fallout caused by the other party’s careless actions. Personal injury law divides compensatory damages into two categories: “special” and “general.”
You are entitled to compensation for your losses. In most personal injury cases, the claim for special damages covers prescription charges, travel to appointments and some loss of wages. If it can be proved that your injury left you unable to work, and you lost earnings as a result, the special damages you will get include lost earnings.
