What are Personal Injury Damages?
We often get this question because many people want to know if they will be able to recover enough money to cover their medical and other expenses. While there are many factors that go into evaluating the damages that can be recovered in an injury case, some of the general elements of damages in Texas may include:
- Prior medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Prior pain and suffering
- Future pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Prior lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Loss of household services
- Loss of consortium
- physical impairment
- Damages for wrongful death
- Punitive damages
In addition to establishing liability, an experienced evaluation of each of these categories of potential damages must be undertaken by an experienced personal injury lawyer.
The damages available for wrongful death claims are similar. If you have a serious personal injury or wrongful death matter, you should consult a lawyer board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization such as former Harris County Attorney Michael P. Fleming.
