Damages are the sum of money claimed or awarded in an injury case, paid as compensation to the victim of an act of negligence. There are several forms of damages that can be pursued when negotiating a settlement or that may be awarded by a jury at trial. These include:

A Personal Injury Case Timeline:
What to expect when you are in an accident
After an accident, your primary focus should be on your health and seeking quality medical care. Contact your insurance company to report the accident. Expect the at-fault insurance company to contact you for a statement.
If the at-fault insurance company starts contacting you, you should begin thinking about hiring a Jackson car accident lawyer. Remember, the at-fault insurance company is not on your side!
Once you hire our team, we go to work and relieve you of the hassle of dealing with insurance companies and managing your claim.
We begin investigating the accident, collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, ordering your medical records, and making sure your medical expenses are properly paid.
Once you have completed your medical treatment, or we know how much additional treatment you will need, we demand a settlement of your claim from the at-fault insurance company.
We negotiate settlement amounts with insurance adjusters on your behalf, and we will not settle your claim without your consent.
If the insurance company refuses to settle your claim for what it is worth, a lawsuit is filed. Most times, the person responsible for the accident has insurance, and their insurance company will step in to defend against your claim. Rarely do personal injury lawsuits seek to collect money from personal assets. Instead, the at-fault insurance company is responsible for paying your claim.
After the lawsuit is filed, the claim goes through the discovery process. During this time, the plaintiffs and defendants gather information and evidence about the claim. This process prepares the parties for trial in the event the claim cannot be settled.
Before the case goes to trial, we will make a final attempt to settle your claim. Sometimes, personal injury claimants are paid more money after enduring the discovery process. Most times, we negotiate a settlement with the lawyer for the insurance company.
If your lawyers are unable to resolve the claim, we may attempt resolution through mediation. At mediation, a neutral third-party is hired to help settle the claim. Sometimes, the court will offer its assistance in helping to get the case settled.
If your case simply cannot be settled for fair and reasonable compensation, it goes to trial. At trial, we present evidence about the case facts, your injuries, and damages. Trials are oftentimes decided by a jury, but in limited circumstances a judge may hear and decide your case.
We know that trials are stressful, so we make every effort to settle your case before trial.
We understand that cost may be one of the biggest obstacles when hiring an attorney. After suffering an injury in a serious accident, we know that spending more money is the last thing you want to do – especially if you have medical bills, property damage, and other unexpected expenses piling up. Most lawyers take cases under a contingency fee contract, which means it costs you nothing upfront to hire us.
There are no upfront costs and we do not charge you for our services unless we secure a settlement, verdict, or judgment on your behalf. In our experience, this offers a number of benefits:
When it comes to getting legal help for your injury case, experience really does matter. Turn to a trusted law firm that has a proven track record of success.
