What type of damages can I recover after a car accident in Savannah?

In the days, weeks, and even months following your car crash, there's a good chance you weren't giving the financial side of your accident a second thought. Who cares about how things are being paid for when you're suffering from serious, life-changing injuries?

In these types of situations, your health and well-being always need to come first; unfortunately, when the reality of what has happened sets in, you may be overwhelmed by confusion and fear. You wonder...

  • How am I going to pay my medical bills?
  • If I can never work again, how am I supposed to take care of my family?
  • Why isn't the person who caused this accident being held accountable for my pain and suffering?

Luckily, when you decide to pursue a personal injury case, you have the opportunity to recover a variety of damages. These damages will fall under two primary, broad categories:

Special Damages: These are losses that you can put a fairly exact price tag on:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages
  • The cost of gasoline when getting to and from a doctor's appointment

General Damages: Damages that exist, but are not connected to an exact compensation amount:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of capacity for enjoying life
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • Lost limbs

Essentially, any part of your life that was negatively affected by this accident may qualify as a damage that you could receive compensation for. When you are injured because of the negligence of another person in a car accident, you should not have to pay for a thing—you've already had to deal with enough.
