Every case is different. The exact type of compensation and the amount you might receive depend on your individual situation. For example, the amount you receive will vary depending upon how severely you were injured, whether you are working and what type of job you have, if your injuries are permanent, if you are married, and numerous other factors.
Typically, you are entitled to recover for any of the following expenses:
Pain and suffering
Future medical expenses
Probable loss of wages in the future
Loss of relationship with your spouse
Other out-of-pocket expenses due to your injuries
In some cases, in which the other party's conduct was unusually heinous, you may be able to recover punitive damages.
