Injuries are an unfortunate part of life. While many wounds will heal over time, some can change the course of your life forever. Even minor injuries, however, can come with steep financial, emotional, and physical costs.

Fortunately, if another person’s negligence is responsible for your injuries, a dedicated attorney could help pursue a claim for fair payment. An Athens personal injury lawyer could review your case and determine your chances of recovering compensation.

How Serious Injuries Can Occur

Successful personal injury claims can occur in many circumstances. While most cases are the result of careless or reckless actions, intentional criminal acts can sometimes result in a viable bodily injury claim. An Athens resident involved in a personal injury accident could seek the guidance of an attorney to pursue any of these claims.

Motor vehicle accidents are a primary source of injury claims. Given the speed at which vehicles travel, collisions between two cars can have catastrophic consequences. Negligent acts involving vehicle collisions could include aggressive, intoxicated, or careless driving.

Violent crime is another common cause of personal injury cases. A physical assault could result in a viable injury claim regardless of whether the state is pursuing criminal charges against the perpetrator.

Slip, trip, and fall accidents make up another large portion of these injuries. Whether the falls occur from a great height or involve a person slipping on a wet floor, compensation could be available of the property owner failed to address the hazard in a timely manner.

Available Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim

The ultimate goal of a personal injury claim in Athens is to recover monetary damages from the negligent party. These damages could help the plaintiff recoup a variety of losses related to their injury.

There are two general categories of compensation, or damages, available in a personal injury case: economic and non-economic. Economic damages compensate victims for their measurable losses. They cover harms with a set financial value that would otherwise be an out of pocket expense for the plaintiff. Examples could include medical bills, lost wages, and personal property damage. Notably, economic damages can cover both a victim’s past and future expenses. For example, if an injured person requires ongoing medical care or is unable to work due to a disability, they can seek compensation for these losses.

Non-economic damages are more subjective, making it much more difficult to measure their value. These damages compensate victims for the physical and emotional toll an injury can take as opposed to financial losses that result in a bill or invoice. Common examples include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Reach Out to an Athens Personal Injury Attorney

Following a severe injury, you could find it difficult to know what to do next. Recovering for your injuries is inherently stressful, but doing so under severe financial strain only makes things harder.

The right legal counsel could help you obtain the compensation you need to improve your financial situation. An attorney could move your claim forward while you relax and focus on your health. Contact an Athens personal injury lawyer to schedule a consultation.
