Personal Injury and Unique Consequences

Many of us are familiar with the results of personal injury cases. With good lawyers, you can usually receive medical compensation for the costs of healing your personal injury. And we often hear of cases where lawyers showed enough evidence that the plaintiff received compensation for his or her loss of wages. But have you ever heard about a case where a person received compensation for loss of love? What about mental anguish? Here are some interesting consequences of personal injury cases.

1

Loss of Consortium

Loss of Consortium

Expert lawyers from Utah to the East Coast are familiar with this term. However, the average person may not be. Loss of consortium means that if, due to a personal injury, a spouse or partner is unable to give affection, companionship, comfort or even have sexual relationships with their partner, they can both make the claim for compensation.

Present Cash Value

Present Cash Value

The dollar amount of earnings which could have been earned by wisely investing if the plaintiff hadn’t been injured.

Future Medical Expenses

Although current medical expenses are addressed in court, future expenses can also be compensated for in a lawsuit.

Pain and Suffering

Although it is difficult to put a price tag on something like pain, a jury can consider the nature of the mental injury, the severity of it and how long the individual will or has been in pain.

Mental anguish

If an individual has gone through mental suffering, worry, stress, embarrassment, or grief, this is discussed under this category.
