Baltimore, MD- A traffic accident has the power to alter the course of a person’s life. Fortunately, the majority of traffic accidents are minor, but in too many incidents, accident victims suffer major injuries that saddle them with exorbitant costs.

With soaring medical costs, even a more minor injury like a broken bone can end up costing several thousand. A brain injury or a spinal injury, both very severe and potentially debilitating, can add up to hundreds of thousands and perhaps millions of dollars in medical costs over the victim’s lifetime. Victims of car accidents, truck accidents or workplace accidents are eligible to different categories of compensation depending on the circumstances of their accident and the types of injuries they suffered.
Medical expenses: Medical expenses are typically the greatest expense a victim faces in the wake of their accident. They can ask the at-fault party to cover the costs of their emergency transport, surgery or other medical procedures, daily hospitalization, medications and rehabilitation. Compensation for medical expenses includes current costs and any future costs a victim may face.
Property damage: Humans take the brunt of collision impact, but a crash can also severely damage or destroy property. Compensation for property damage is also commonly awarded in accident claims.
Lost wages: An accident victim can lose days or weeks from work depending on the nature of their injuries. For most accident victims, losing any time from work can be a significant financial burden, especially if they end up being out for work for weeks or months.
Emotional distress: The effects of a traffic accident are not limited to physical, many victims also suffer emotionally. Their accident can lead to stress, anxiety, grief and depression, which is why accident victims can seek compensation for their emotional distress.
Pain and suffering: This compensation is awarded for the extreme physical pain some accident victims suffer.
Loss of enjoyment: This compensation is awarded when a victim’s injuries are catastrophic enough that they prevent them from doing the things they enjoyed before their accident. For example, an accident victim who can no longer run may be entitled to compensation for their loss of enjoyment.
Punitive damage: These damages are awarded when the at-fault party’s actions were willfully or involved gross negligence. A motorist who was drunk when they caused an accident, may be ordered to pay punitive damages.
