Damages You May Seek

There are different damages that you may want to go after in a workplace injury accident. Some of the most common include: 

  • Medical bills. This includes hospital stays and fees, prescription or over the counter medication, physical therapy costs, chiropractic care, or anything else that you need to do following your accident. It can include reconstructive surgeries if you are facing disfigurement, or other surgeries if you need something else done to make your life as close to normal as possible.
  • Lost wages due to missed work. This includes work that you already missed and plan to miss because of the injuries sustained. Your family is already going through enough and should not suffer financially on top of everything else. You need to be paid for the work that you had planned to do. 
  • Damages for pain and suffering. If you are facing embarrassment or other negative feelings because of the accident, you may be entitled to damages for the emotional toll the accident is taking on you. This can even help you pay for therapy to get back on track mentally. 
  • Personal property damages. If anything that you had on your person at the time of the accident was ruined, your company needs to pay to get you a replacement. 

There may be other damages that you are entitled to. The most important thing is to be honest and upfront about what happened and what you believe you deserve out of this case.
