Damages resulting from a car accident can often include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Medical bills are for procedures that the victim might have to get done because of the accident. These could be lab tests, surgeries, or visits to the doctor. Lost wages are the victim’s wages lost because they can’t work while recovering from the accident. Pain and suffering refers to the mental and emotional toll that the victim has to go through after an injury. Damages can vary depending on how severe the injuries are. If the victim has a broken bone, for example, they might have to spend more than someone without a broken bone.
In some cases, the damage may be covered by a third-party insurance company. In other cases, you might need to file a lawsuit to recover the damages from the at-fault driver.
