Long-Term Medical Needs from a Personal Injury

Long-Term Medical Needs from a Personal Injury

In a personal injury case, there are several sorts of damages that you typically can recover. Obviously most people are familiar with medical, but in addition to the past medical bills you've had, you may have future medical needs as well. Oftentimes this may include; needs for surgery into the future, or replacement medical devices. Things like shoulder replacements and knee replacements don't last forever. So if you're a fairly young person, you might need a new one. There's lost income and that can be past and future, it's usually considered more of a lost earning capacity. So for instance if you're a housewife who doesn't work and you're injured and it would prevent you from working in the future, you still have a lost earning capacity. In addition, there's emotional trauma that you may suffer, pain & suffering, disfigurement that can arise from scarring or surgical scars and impairment, things that you could no longer do or are limited in your ability to do.
