What Are Damages?
When it comes to personal injury claims‚ there are many terms that can leave people confused. One of those is “damages.”
Damages refer to the injuries and expenses you and your family suffered following an accident and are trying to claim. In regards to dog bites‚ damages could refer to:
- Emergency room visits
- Physical therapy
- Property damage
Damages are not limited to the physical aspects of your injuries. If you have endured emotional pain and suffering‚ you could be entitled to compensation as well. Generally speaking‚ the severity of the damages suffered dictates the amount you may be able to recover from the negligent party.
