Available Compensation for the Injured

The financial problems after an injury or death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Medical expenses, utility bills, funeral costs – these all need to be paid. When you have suffered an injury because of another person’s negligence, you may have a viable case against them. Certain damages are available for the injury victims:

Medical Bills

After you sustain an injury, medical expenses will accumulate. Depending on the type and severity of your injuries, the amount of medical treatment you will need is different. Hospital bills, emergency room bills, medication and prescription costs, doctor’s visits, surgery costs, lab work, various diagnostic tests, rehabilitation costs – the list can be endless. You will be able to recover every present and future medical expense related to the accident.

Lost Wages

When you are hurt, you cannot work. It can also prevent you from returning to work in the same capacity as before the accident. Lost wages can be calculated in fixed dollar amounts and represent the amount you did not earn because of the injuries and recovery. If you earn bonuses or tips, these expenses are also included.

Pain and Suffering

Non-economic damages (often called ‘pain and suffering’) are not tied to specific monetary costs and are more challenging to calculate. They may include:

  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium or companionship
  • Humiliation
  • Loss of joy of life
  • Any sort of chronic pain and suffering

Property Damage

You may claim the costs of replacing or repairing your damaged property in an accident, for example, a car in a car crash or a mobile phone in a slip and fall accident. Appraisals and estimates will be needed to determine the amount of compensation for damaged property you are due.

Lifestyle Adjustments

After an accident, you may need help to complete household duties and chores, or you may need the installation of some kind of handicap aid. The costs of extra help and adjustments or your home can add up, so the economic damages will include the value of the external costs of quality of life improvements.

Future Lost Earning Capacity

This type of economic damage considers what you will miss out on income in the future. Every promotion, bonus, and benefit is included, but you may need the help of an occupational expert to arrive at an accurate figure of this type of damage.

Economic and Non-Economic Damages Limit

There is no limit on economic damages; however, Maryland has a maximum limit or ‘cap’ on the amount of non-economic damages a victim can recover from an accident. The caps for civil litigations other than medical malpractice are in the chart below. There are three subcategories for each of these:

  • The cap that applies generally;
  • The cap for wrongful death claims with 2 or more beneficiaries;
  • The cap on the combined limit for wrongful death and survival action if both are being made.
