If you are involved in an accident and suffer injuries, you may be able to pursue compensation from the person or persons responsible for your injuries. The types of recovery that you qualify for depends on your injuries and losses, called damages. In personal injury cases, there are many different types of recovery that you may be eligible for.
It is best to work with a skilled personal injury attorney to determine what types of recovery you are entitled to. Personal injury laws vary in each state, so you must build your case based on those laws.
