What kind of compensation could I recover?
If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s actions, you may be able to recover damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. By filing a successful lawsuit, you could potentially recover both compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are intended to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other costs you incurred due to the accident. On the other hand, you may also be able to recover punitive damages if the defendant acted especially recklessly or dangerously and knew his or her actions could potentially cause harm.
