Calculating Damages After Your Motor Vehicle Accident

Recovering from an accident is a nightmare.

Depending on the extent of the injuries, it is possible to be bedridden and unable to walk. Simple household chores become exhausting and it can be difficult to sleep and get a good night of rest because of the pain. To make matters worse, working may not be possible because of the injuries. Physical and emotional turmoil is prevalent as a result of the accident. Medical bills begin to pile up and creditors will begin to harass about making payments. In addition to all of this negativity swirling around daily life, battling a stressful and complex personal injury case can be inevitable.

Calculating damages after an auto accident in the State of Georgia is not simple, but it is important to calculate damages as accurately as possible in order to receive a fair settlement award or judgment. Why should an injured person be burdened with financial stress when someone else’s negligence caused the accident that led to the injuries?

Damages Available to Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

Like many other states, in Georgia, an injured victim may receive compensation for the following damages:

  1. Economic Damages

Economic damages are those that can be easily quantifiable. These damages include:

  • Loss of income,
  • Medical expenses,
  • Loss of earning potential,
  • Property damage, and
  • Other expenses incurred as a result of the accident.

To ensure full restitution is obtained for economic damages, it is important to safe keep receipts and invoices to prove the existence of these financial losses. Further, it is worth noting that future medical costs can also be incurred, particularly when the accident resulted in chronic pain or disability. Proficient legal support may be able to help determine the appropriate amount to demand from the at-fault party.

  1. Non-Economic Damages

Calculating these types of damages can be extremely challenging. For instance, it can be very difficult to attach a monetary figure to subjective concepts such as “the loss of quality of life”. Because of the intricacies involved in calculating non-economic damages, every case will be different, even when they appear to be similar. Every person has a personal concept of what a part of their life will be worth.

Some of the most commonly non-economic damages reported after a car accident include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety,
  • Stress,
  • Loss of enjoyment,
  • Pain and suffering, and
  • Emotional distress.
  1. Punitive Damages

These types of damages are set to punish at-fault parties that caused the accident as a result of reckless or egregious conduct. In most cases, punitive damages are capped, unless the accident was caused as a result of a defective product or if the at-fault party acted intentionally or was intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Punitive damages are rare and are usually not meant to compensate the injured party for the injuries. Instead, these damages are set to penalize the at-fault party and deter others from committing similar actions.
