What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Claim?

When you are injured in an accident or suffer a loss because of someone else’s negligence, you do not only experience physical harm—you will also likely experience significant financial hardships and emotional consequences as well. The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to help you recover for all your losses, financial and otherwise.

While each case is different, many people who file personal injury claims are able to recover the following damages:

  • Medical expenses, including initial and ongoing care costs
  • Costs associated with medications, physical therapy, and rehabilitation
  • Reasonable and necessary projected future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering, including trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and distress
  • Lost income/wages, as well as other lost employment benefits
  • Lost future earnings and loss of earning capacity due to disability

In some cases, it may be possible to pursue punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages, like those listed above, punitive damages are not meant to compensate the victim for their losses. Instead, these damages are meant to hold the defendant accountable for egregious negligence and/or willful or wanton misconduct. Punitive damages are relatively rare but may be appropriate depending on the specifics of your case.

What Types of Accidents & Injuries Are Covered by Workers’ Compensation?

In Michigan, workers’ compensation is available to nearly all employees and covers any type of work-related accident, injury, or illness. If you can prove that you were injured or became ill while carrying out activities that benefitted your employer or due to workplace conditions, and you meet all other eligibility requirements, you may file a workers’ compensation claim and seek medical, wage replacement, and other benefits.

Some common examples of the types of accidents and injuries workers’ compensation covers include:

  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Falls to lower levels
  • Burns
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of limb/amputation
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Toxic exposure
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Hearing and vision loss
  • Machinery/equipment accidents
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck and shoulder injuries

This is not an exhaustive list; if you were injured or became ill because of your working conditions, work-related duties, or a workplace accident, you could be eligible for benefits.
