What Does Car Accident Injury Compensation Include?
New York Injury Victims’ Rights
What does car accident injury compensation include? How do I pay for my medical bills? Is there a way to get the at-fault party to pay for my future medical bills and my pain and suffering? These are all relevant and important legal questions after a New York car accident.
While each case is unique and should be evaluated by an experienced attorney who can help you understand your rights to compensation, injury compensation is generally available for:
- Past, present and future medical bills: Car accident compensation generally includes reimbursement for past and present medical bills stemming from the accident, as well as future medical bills. If you or your doctor anticipates that you will need additional surgeries, medical treatment or rehabilitative care, your personal injury attorney will likely factor that into your future medical expenses.
- Lost wages: Another component of car accident compensation is usually lost wages. If you missed work because of your injuries, you may be entitled to those wages as part of your car accident compensation.
