Common Damages in Elmont, NY, Car Accident Cases

You May Be Entitled to Different Types of Compensation

Various forms of compensation may be available to you after your car accident. An experienced Elmont car accident lawyer will identify every one of them and pursue compensation when appropriate.

For minor injuries, you can expect your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance to cover some of the economic losses you experience, regardless of fault. However, PIP does not cover noneconomic losses, nor does it provide full compensation for lost income or all of your accident-related expenses. To pursue noneconomic damages and full wage compensation for missed work, you must have suffered a serious injury, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

With a serious injury, you can potentially file a claim for compensation against the other driver’s liability insurance policy. However, your Elmont car accident attorney must prove fault to collect damages.

Economic Damages

The economic damages your attorney will pursue include:

  • Medical treatment and care costs
  • Missing income from time taken off work
  • Travel expenses for medical care and treatment.

Economic damages also encompass damage to your vehicle. In the event of a fatality, death benefits and wrongful death damages may also be available, such as damages to cover funeral and burial expenses as well as end-of-life care costs.

Noneconomic Damages

Some of the intangible losses you suffer that are covered by noneconomic damages include:
