In an auto accident injury claim in Alabama, there are several types of compensation that can be recovered, including:
Medical expenses: This includes any expenses related to medical treatment for injuries sustained in the accident, such as hospital stays, doctor's visits, physical therapy, and prescription medications.
Lost wages: If the injured person is unable to work as a result of their injuries, they can recover compensation for any lost wages or income. This includes not only the time they were unable to work but also any future earning capacity that may have been lost as a result of the accident.
Pain and suffering: This type of compensation is intended to compensate the injured person for the physical and emotional pain they have experienced as a result of the accident. Factors that are taken into account when determining the amount of pain and suffering compensation include the severity of the injuries, the length of recovery time, and the impact the injuries have had on the person's quality of life.
Property damage: If the accident resulted in damage to the injured person's vehicle or other personal property, they can recover compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement.
Punitive damages: In some cases, the court may award punitive damages in addition to other types of compensation. Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for particularly egregious conduct and deter similar conduct in the future.
Wrongful death: If a loved one dies as a result of an auto accident, the surviving family members may be able to recover compensation for the loss of the deceased person's income, the loss of their companionship and support, and the expenses associated with the funeral and burial.
