If someone else’s negligence causes you injury, you’re entitled to compensation. Most people know that. But compensation for what, exactly?
Arizona personal injury law actually entitles victims to a wide range of compensation, depending on the facts and circumstances of the case. The goal of the legal process is to put you in the same position you were in prior to the accident — or at least as close as possible.
Often, a monetary award is the easiest way for the court to do that. After all, a judge and jury can’t necessarily restore your health or take away your emotional suffering. But they can at least provide reimbursement for your damages and ongoing care.
Damages Available Under Arizona Personal Injury Law
If you’ve been injured in a car crash, slip, and fall, or another kind of accident in Arizona, you may be entitled to restitution for all of the following:
- Medical bills and related expenses
- Future medical care
- Bodily pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Brain damage
- Diminished mental capacity or wellness
- Loss of enjoyment of everyday activities
- Loss of companionship (if a loved one is injured or killed)
