Types of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury claims can arise out of many different types of accidents and situations, such as:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Dog Bites
- Wrongful death
Damages in a personal injury claim refer to the losses suffered by a victim. There are two types of damages, special and general. For an accident victim to have a viable claim, he must have suffered a loss.
- Special Damages. These include all costs related to medical care, wage loss while recuperating from injuries and property damage.
- General Damages. These can include pain and suffering, emotional distress, etc.
Damages can also be awarded for future earnings and future medical costs.
Time Limitations for filing a personal injury claim
The law has strict time limits for filing a personal injury claim. These time limits are referred to as the statute of limitations. If an injured party fails to file a claim within a specified time, they can be forever barred from making a claim for their injuries.
