Damages victims of Rhode Island car accidents can claim

Victims of car accidents in Rhode Island will go through a litany of emotions immediately following and long after the incident. These can include anger, sadness, worry, anxiety, stress and many more. One thing victims shouldn't have to worry about is the damages they can claim following the accident. Here are just a few car accident damages victims can recover.

One of the most important types of damages you can recover following a car accident is that of your medical expenses. You will be overwhelmed with medical bills for consultations, equipment, ambulance rides, hospital stays, in-home care and much more. Do not let these bills ruin your credit and financial situation, especially if you are out of work for an extended period.

As mentioned above, you likely will miss time at work if you suffer a serious injury in a car accident. This means you will not be getting paid. This can spiral quickly when you are unable to pay the bills. You can recover damages for current and future lost wages. To recover future lost wages, you will need to show the seriousness of your injury, how it affects your ability to do the job, and the prognosis the doctor issued for your injury and recovery chances.

If a loved one, such as a spouse, died as the result of a Provide car accident, you can recover damages for loss of companionship. These damages can only be recovered if you recover damages for your own injuries.

Being injured in a car accident can change your life. Let an experienced personal injury attorney in Providence help you receive the compensation you deserve.
