Following a car accident, an injured driver may face serious out-of-pocket expenses, including medical bills and lost income.

Different Types of Car Wreck Damages

Damages in any personal injury case are divided into several types, each meant to restore a plaintiff for a particular loss. Gwinnett County car accident damages can include economic and non-economic compensation. On rare occasions, punitive damages could be available to the claimant.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are based on quantifiable bills. Economic damages include medical treatment, lost wages, future lost wages, and other out of pocket expenses. Relevant documents may include a receipt or a bill that has been generated as the result of a medical procedure or appointment, such as an emergency room bill, a doctor’s bill, a physical therapist bill, a chiropractic bill, an orthopedist bill, a neurologist, an MRI, or an X-ray. Pharmaceutical bills for medications and perhaps counseling would also be included in economic damages.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages will include factors like pain and suffering, mental anguish, or disfigurement. Non-economic damages that are harder to quantify, but still critical to any car accident case. Fortunately, a seasoned lawyer could help a victim with recovering the non-economic damages they deserve.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages may be levied to punish the negligent party. An example of a car wreck case that may lead to punitive damages is if it is a hit and run accident case. A case involving an intoxicated driver may also warrant punitive damages. The imposition of punitive damages is relatively rare, and may only apply to cases where the defendant displayed wanton recklessness or negligence.

Crafting a Demand Package

The first step an attorney will likely take in attempting to recover Peachtree Corners car accident damages is to investigate the claim itself. An attorney could gather all the relevant evidence and look at the accident report, talk to witnesses, obtain video surveillance, any other documents, pictures, or testimony from any party.

Next, they may examine the victim’s medical treatment. Once the claimant has reached maximum medical improvement from their doctors, the attorney puts a demand package together with every element of compensation, including economic, non-economic, and any punitive damage issues.

They would then send the demand package to the insurance company, demanding money on behalf of the claimant. The insurance company will then respond, which opens the door for settlement negotiations. If there is not an agreement made between the plaintiff and the insurance company, then the attorney has the option to file suit in court to move that case into litigation and possibly to trial.
