Damages in a Personal Injury Case

Damages In a Personal Injury Case

Personal Injury Lawyer Phoenix AZ

A personal injury lawyer Phoenix AZ residents trust understands that the effect accident injuries can have on a victim’s life can be overwhelming. Victims who are injured due to the negligence of another party may be entitled to compensation for those injuries under Arizona law. A seasoned personal injury lawyer Phoenix AZ clients count on from Alex & Associates, P.C. may seek both economic and noneconomic damages on behalf of injured clients.

Economic Damages

When a victim is injured, their injuries may affect their ability to do everyday tasks, including being able to work. A personal injury lawyer in Phoenix AZ may see victims who suddenly have no income because they are unable to work. On top of the medical bills they may be facing, they might also be left with no way to pay for their mortgage or rent, utilities, or food.

These losses are referred to as economic damages. In order to pursue this type of compensation from an at-fault party, it is important for the victim to keep succinct records of all their expenses and financial losses related to their injuries. A personal injury lawyer Phoenix AZ residents depend on may advise you to keep track of all your medical expenses. These records should include:

  • Ambulance transport
  • Costs of transportation for medical services
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Emergency room visits
  • Hospital stays
  • Mental health therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescription and non-prescription medication

A personal injury lawyer Phoenix AZ counts on may also instruct you to keep certain records for any missed work time and the subsequent loss of income. These records may include a log of all days missed, as well as a letter from your employer verifying that lost time and the amount of what your wages would have been. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may also be able to collect compensation for future income.

Noneconomic Damages

A victim may also be entitled to pursue noneconomic damages for their injuries. These damages are for any pain the accident victims suffered and/or continues to suffer with, as well as any emotional and mental health issues that are a result of the accident, such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

Unlike economic damages, which have a clear dollar amount, noneconomic damages are calculated in a different manner, using either a multiplier method or per diem method. Your Phoenix AZ personal injury lawyer can explain this to you in more detail during a consultation.
