Medical Bill Damages in New Hampshire Car Accident Cases
Car accident victims can acquire significant medical bills. Successful plaintiffs can recover the cost of medical expenses, such as:
- Emergency transportation expenses
- Hospital stay expenses
- Physical therapy expenses
- The cost of home health care
- The cost of medical equipment
- The cost of surgery
- The cost of medication
Plaintiffs are also entitled to compensation for estimated future medical expenses caused by the driver’s negligence. Our attorneys can make sure that you have an accurate accounting of your past and potential future medical expenses.
Damages for Lost Wages
If you suffered serious injuries in a car accident, you might have been unable to go to work. Successful New Hampshire car accident plaintiffs are entitled to compensation for the current value of their lost wages. They are also entitled to compensation for any expected loss of future wages.
Damages for Disfigurement and Permanent Injuries
New Hampshire law allows plaintiffs who’ve suffered a disfiguring or permanent disability to recover compensation. The compensation is for their loss of cognitive ability, loss of speech, paralysis, or loss of cognitive ability. Qualifying disabilities could include facial or bodily scarring, loss of a limb, or an inability to bend or lift your arms above chest level.
Damages for Pain and Suffering
New Hampshire law allows successful personal injury plaintiffs to recover compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the car accident. There is no precise formula for pain and suffering calculations. The amount of pain and suffering compensation is usually related to the severity of the bodily injuries a person suffered.
If a plaintiff suffered a long, painful recovery from his or her injuries, a jury might award the plaintiff more damages. Similarly, if a plaintiff is permanently disabled as a result of the driver’s negligence, he or she may receive a large amount of compensation for pain and suffering.
