What Kind of Damages Could I Be Entitled to?

For car accident cases, you may be entitled to compensation for losses related to your accident, called compensatory damages. These may include:

  • Medical expenses (present and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Lost wages and loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
