There are two common types of car accident damages. These are as follows:

  • Property damage. Property damage refers to damages of personal property (e.g., such as the vehicle, the vehicle’s contents), and other property (e.g., a yard, mailbox, and/or structure) that come about as a result of a car accident
  • Personal injury. Personal injury refers to damages—more specifically, injuries—of the vehicle’s occupants as a result of the car accident. Personal injuries that come from car accidents typically results in medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering

It is important that documentation is always maintained so that you can show your losses, prove the damages you suffered, and communicate the value of your personal injury claim following your auto accident. An auto accident injury lawyer can help you calculate the value of your claim.

Property Damage In A Car Accident Claim:

If you have been in an auto accident, you have suffered property damage as a result, it is crucial that you provide proof of your losses as well as gather both estimates and receipts that can help you prove these losses. Losses relating to property damage may include vehicle repairs and/or damage to other possessions, such as the contents of the vehicle or things that were struck during the crash.

When gathering estimates, it is important to note that you will need to get written estimates for repairs and/or gather receipts that can help you either show (1) how much you paid for the damaged items, or (2) proof that you have replaced an item. The totals of these losses should be added up in order to highlight your overall property damages.

Personal Injury In A Car Accident Claim:

If you have been hurt in a car accident, you can pursue a personal injury claim. If you were in a car accident and suffered either personal injury(s) or property damage(s), you may want to consider pursuing a personal injury claim because losses from accidents can get expensive given that they can include medical expenses (e.g., doctor bills, hospital bills, emotional distress, mental anguish, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.).

It is crucial that you also document the mileage you travel to and from medical appointments, keep up with receipts and/or bills for medical costs (e.g., doctor’s appointments bills, prescription receipts, diagnostic test receipts, etc.) and store them in a safe place, and maintain proof of both missed work and lost wages. All of these expenses should be added up to show a total sum of your past, present, and future costs associated with your personal injury claim.
