What is your case worth?
What your case is worth all comes down to the amount of damages you sustained. Damages are awarded to the injured party by the at-fault party or their insurance company. The focus of your monetary award will be compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are intended to compensate you for any loss you incurred due to the accident. This can include:
- Emotional distress
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of income
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage.
Property damage and medical bills are fairly easy to quantify. Other things such as loss of enjoyment, emotional distress, and pain and suffering are subjective in nature and there is a wide variation on values assigned to these types of damages. The insurance company may undervalue them because they are difficult to prove. Punitive damages may also come into play. If the at-fault driver’s actions were extremely careless, you may be entitled to punitive damages. The intent of punitive damages is to send a message to the at-fault driver and the community as a whole that this type of extreme recklessness will not be tolerated.
Things that may limit your right to recovery include contributory negligence and failure to mitigate damages. Contributory negligence means your actions contributed to the accident which puts you partially at fault. Failure to mitigate damages means you did nothing to limit the expenses you incurred as a result of the accident.
