Common Damages And Injuries That The Howell Township Car Accident Lawyers Team Will Help You Pursue
Car accidents can cause serious and long-term physical, mental, and financial losses. Personal injuries can cost tens of thousands of dollars to treat. Car accidents can also lead to significant losses of other types, such as lost income and property or vehicle damage.
Based on the specifics of your case, we can help you recover compensation for common personal injuries such as:
- Head, neck, and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Eye, dental, and facial injuries
- Broken, fractured, or crushed bone injuries
- Cuts, abrasions, lacerations, and contusions
- Mental or emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of a body part
- Wrongful death
The above are all examples of personal injuries. Many of them can be quantified using hospital bills and treatment invoices. These are called economic damages. Others such as emotional trauma or the pain felt due to the loss of a loved one cannot be easily quantified and are classified as non-economic damages.
Although these non-economic damages are harder to quantify, you can still include them in many car accident claims. Our Howell Township car accident lawyers can help you quantify all of your damages so that you file for as fair a compensation figure as is allowed by law and the insurance policies you carry.
Other damages not included in personal injury damages that we can help you recover include:

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents in Howell Township
You can only sue for damages if your damages are classified as catastrophic. If they are, you may be able to sue another driver guilty of driving errors or negligence, or a road construction or vehicle service team if construction or maintenance-related factors or omissions caused your accident. You can even sue municipal or government bodies if road upkeep, design, or safety caused or contributed to your accident.
The duty of care is the criterion used to determine whether the actions of an at-fault party who caused an accident warrant legal action. It is usually defined as actions that an individual or party of reasonable knowledge, experience, and competence would have performed under the same circumstances.
Based on the specifics of your case, you may be able to hold another party at fault for an accident if you can prove that he or she should have but did not perform actions that could have prevented an accident and that a failure to do so led to an accident that led to quantifiable damages on your part and is therefore tantamount to negligence.
