Victims of personal injury have the right to recover compensation from those who negligently caused their accidents. This compensation is meant to cover financial and emotional losses victims incur as a direct result of their injuries.

This can include the costs of medical devices, medications, or surgeries a person is likely to require in the future, as well as lost wages if serious injuries affect a person’s ability to work and earn income.
