Damages from medical expenses. If a personal injury results in the victim requiring medical care they may be awarded compensation to cover these expenses. Naturally, these expenses can become very high depending on the type of injury. Ideally, medical damages will include compensation for all medical expenses related to the injury. These types of damages can become very complex as the result of medical insurance company involvement.
In some cases, a medical care provider or an insurance company may attempt to place a lien on damage rewards to the victim. A lien is best explained as a claim on money. In this type of case, the lien would stipulate that money awarded to the victim of injury be appropriated to either a provider of medical care or a medical insurer to cover their costs. The lien is used to provide a warranty that either the provider or insurer will receive payment when damages are awarded.
Personal income damages. Another complex damages related issue are diminishment of income related damages. This can involve money lost as a result of temporarily being unable to work, money lost as a result of lifetime disability arising from the injury, or reduced earning potential resulting from personal injury.
Punitive damages. These damages don’t necessarily intend to compensate the victim of injury for their expenses, suffering, or loss of income. Punitive damages are often awarded with the intent of penalizing the responsible party financially for negligence or misconduct.
A complete detailing of all issues related to personal injury and related damage awards is extremely complex.
