  • Rehabilitative therapy costs: After being released from the hospital, you may need continued rehabilitative therapies to restore muscle coordination, mobility, mental faculties, and more. The compensation you seek can include future costs, such as specialized therapies.
  • Lost wages: Missing work due to an injury can create a significant financial setback as you lose out on paychecks and benefits. You
  • might also be required to accept a different, lower-paying position due to new debilitations caused by your injuries.
  • Property damages: If any of your property was destroyed in an accident you did not cause, then you can seek compensation to repair or replace that property. Car accident claims, for example, will often include property damages if the provided insurance payouts do not cover the extent of the damage.
  • Lifestyle changes: You may need to make big changes to your day-to-day routines due to the injuries you suffered in an accident. Everything from the need to install a wheelchair ramp in your home to hiring a 24-hour caretaker can be covered in a successful claim.
