What Kind of Damages Can I Get Compensated For?
There are a wide variety of damages you can receive compensation for.
When you suffer through a catastrophic injury, chances are, you will need to take time off of work to recover. The hours you spend healing could have been hours you spent working to earn money. The loss of these wages is a type of economic damage that you can get compensated for. Remember to keep all pay stubs and financial records. If possible, get a signed letter from your job stating how many hours you missed due to your injuries.
Naturally, when you get injured, you go to the hospital. Hospital visits are costly, even with proper health coverage. You do not have to cover your medical treatment costs if you hold the at-fault party liable for your damages. You can cover many medical-related damages like:
- Assisted living equipment and services
- Physical therapy and rehab
- Psychological services
- ER visits, doctor’s visits, etc.
Medical debt can put you in financial ruin and put more strain on an already difficult situation. It is essential that you hold the party responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions.
Non-economic damages is an umbrella term for damages that do not have a fixed value. Generally, you can expect a maximum cap for non-economic damages, but some exceptions allow you to recover more. These damages typically get calculated with the help from an attorney and reflect things such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma and mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Our attorneys will help you evaluate all of the non-economic damages you have sustained and ensure that they get factored into your settlement.

Statute of Limitations on Catastrophic Injury Cases
The Official Code of Minnesota Annotated (OCMA) § 541.07, you have only two years to file your claim. Once this time passes, you will not be able to get compensation for your damages. Before you file you should always:
- Have all of your evidence ready
- Double-check all of your paperwork
- Account for all of your damages
Once you receive a settlement, you will not be able to pursue further compensation if you incur any further damages. You should always wait until you finalize all calculations before filing. Our lawyers will help you decide on the right time to file your claim so you can get the proper amount of compensation.
Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side
Insurance companies may initially seem friendly and offer you a quick settlement that covers all of your damages. What they are really trying to do is get you to accept a low offer so they can absolve themselves of any liability.
Their interests lie solely in covering their own bottom line. Do not fall for their tricks. Simply getting proper legal representation is enough for them to not bother with their tactics.
