What types of damages are available after a Car Accident in Pennsylvania?

Car accidents can leave you with physical injuries, emotional trauma, and financial burden. In Pennsylvania, car accident damages may include economic and non-economic compensation.

Economic Damages

These damages are quantifiable losses incurred due to a car accident. They have a specific value and are easier to calculate than non-economic damages. Some examples include past and future medical expenses, past and future loss of income or income potential, and property damage.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages do not have a specific dollar value and therefore are more challenging to calculate and can vary greatly based on many factors such as the location of the accident (venue), your age, functional problems, and permanency of your injury. These damages include:

  • Physical and mental pain and suffering, physical discomfort, mental anxiety, emotional distress, and inconvenience and will continue to endure the same in the future as a result of her injuries.
  • Embarrassment and humiliation, feelings of shame, inferiority, and inadequacy (past and present).
  • Loss of the ability to enjoy the pleasures of life, including past and future loss or diminishment of her ability to participate in sports, hobbies, recreational interests, pleasurable pursuits, and other activities that you previously enjoyed.
  • Inability to pursue your daily routines, duties and occupations to your great detriment and loss, embarrassment, and humiliation.
  • Loss of consortium. This is for an injured party’s spouse for the loss of companionship, affection, and support that may have been affected by the accident.
