I was in an auto accident. What damages am I entitled to receive?

Generally, the damages in an auto negligence case include compensation for your:

  • Pain and suffering.
  • Lost income.
  • Disability/loss of normal life activities.
  • Scars/disfigurement.
  • Medical expenses.
  • Emotional distress.
  • Increased risk of future harm.

There is no precise formula for determining the amount of money a person receives for their injuries. This is determined by a jury or judge after a trial in court.
