Documentation that may help demonstrate the extent and severity of your child’s airbag injuries can include medical records, x-rays, prescriptions, and anything else related to his or her care. However, you could be compensated for more than just medical expenses. There may be other damages available.
Damages in a Child Injury Claim
Some of the damages you may be entitled to receive in a child injury claim include:
- doctor/hospital expenses;
- pain and suffering;
- physical therapy;
- mental anguish;
- reduced quality of life; and
- permanent disability.
Compensation can address not only the financial aspect of your child’s injuries, but also the physical and emotional impact it has had on the child. The trauma of a car accident can lead to psychological difficulties such as anxiety, not to mention the injury healing process.
It can be difficult to estimate the worth of these losses, so it helps to discuss it with a lawyer. An attorney may be able to provide an estimate of what you could be entitled to.
