Types of Car Accident Damages You May be able to Recover

A car accident comes out of the blue and turns your world upside down. If you, someone you love, or both were seriously injured, the immediate aftermath is overwhelming, and all you can think about is survival and getting through each day. But serious injuries can have long-term consequences which must be addressed quickly and properly. You cannot afford to sit back and leave it to the insurance company to do the right thing. You don’t have to go it alone either. Wood Law Firm can take the burden off of you, so you can focus on healing and taking care of your family.


After a car accident, you may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages. And not just compensation for the damages you have already suffered, but also your future damages.

Economic damages are your monetary expenses and losses, such as medical bills, lost income, and out-of-pocket expenses. Existing economic expenses are relatively straight-forward but as huge as they may seem to you right now, they are probably just the tip of the iceberg. Calculating and proving your projected future economic damage is a complex process that requires the help of experts, and it is crucial to recovering the money you will need to cover the costs of your injuries for the rest of your life.

Non-economic damages are the harms that probably mean the most to you, and they are much more difficult to pin down and to prove. These include things like your physical pain and suffering, emotional pain and suffering, and the inability to participate in other activities you used to enjoy, like playing with your children or simply going out to dinner.
