Personal injury is an area of the law that deals with the consequences of a person’s negligent actions. Driving distracted, failing to properly secure a pet, and improper maintenance of a property are all examples of situations that can directly lead to the harm of another person. Along with causing physical damage to a person’s body, personal injury can also entail a mental and emotional component, which often go on to have lasting negative effects on the victim.
In Santa Fe, the personal injury attorneys at Roybal-Mack & Cordova, PC use their extensive case history to help clients fight for the justice they deserve. When pursuing damages for negligent wrongdoing, the first step is to understand what kinds of compensation can be sought.
Of course, victims of accidents would most likely wish to go back to a time before the incident ever occurred. Because that’s not a possibility, accident victims must seek damages, which are monetary rewards aimed at compensating a person for different types of loss. Legal compensation helps from a practical perspective, as you’ll likely have medical bills and lost wages to contend with.
Damages can also be sought for intangible reasons. If your injuries led to a loss of enjoyment from life in general or jeopardized your relationship with a husband or wife, you may be able to seek damages for pain and suffering. Damages can also be sought for mental and emotional distress, disability, disfigurement, or medical treatments yet to come.
