Recoverable Damages in Auto Accident Cases

In an automobile accident or motor vehicle accident involving cars, trucks, bicycles and motorcycles, there are a wide variety of damages that are recoverable. If an individual or company who owns or operates a motor vehicle is responsible for the injuries and damages resulting from that negligence, the damages can include, but are not limited to:
- Medical Expenses:
- Pain and Suffering:
- Loss of Earnings and Earning Capacity:
Medical expenses that are incurred or are likely to be incurred in the future are recoverable in negligent cases involving motor vehicles. These costs include treatment at an emergency department, treatment by physicians, physical therapists, ambulances, paramedics, chiropractors and nurses.
In Illinois, an injured party may recover damages for physical pain, disfigurement, loss of normal life and disability from engaging in work or recreational activities. Trauma experienced in a motor vehicle accident may include loss of enjoyment of life, wrongful death, loss of society, post traumatic stress disorder and other aspects of the injuries. Pain and suffering experienced and future pain and suffering are recoverable damages in Illinois car accident lawsuits.
An individual injured in a motor vehicle accident may recover damages in the amount of money that would have been earned on the job if it were not for the injuries suffered as a result of the negligence of another. The law allows for the recovery of lost earnings and future lost earnings that would be expected to be lost because of the injuries.
