After a car accident, it’s crucial to seek compensation for numerous reasons. You endure physical pain, mental trauma, and financial hardships stemming from the crash. However, many insurance adjusters try to make it so that you receive much less than you should in a vehicle collision claim.
It helps to have a lawyer on your side to have a better idea of what you may recover after a collision. The amount you can recover may come in two forms. First, you may be able to recover economic compensation. However, you can also recover non-economic compensation. We will explain these below.
Economic compensation refers to your financial losses. After an injury, you may need to spend money on the damage to your vehicle, medical bills, and other losses. Your economic losses are easier to determine because you can provide insurance adjusters with receipts, bills, and paystubs associated with the amount you lose. Some of the compensation you recover can go towards:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
It’s often more challenging to prove non-economic compensation for your damages. Non-economic compensation covers your pain and suffering. The most effective way to maximize your non-economic compensation is by having a strong lawyer on your side to position your case.
Maximizing your non-economic compensation is often dependent on your legal team and the proof of your emotional trauma.
