A.  Accident victims are entitled to recover for various kinds of losses.  Everyone seems to be aware of damages for “Pain and Suffering,” but there are several and various other forms of loss for which you may recover.

You may also recover for:

     Disfigurement;

     Mental anguish;

Aggravation of a previously existing disease or defect;

     Disability;

     Physical impairment;

     Inconvenience;

     Loss of the ability to enjoy life;

     Expense of medical care;

     Lost wages; and

     Loss of the ability to earn money in the future.

Each of these terms has a specific legal meaning which you may not fully appreciate.

The law of damages is complicated.  If you’ve been injured in an accident, I urge you to seek the advice of an attorney immediately.

A. Spouses may recover for injuries suffered by their husband or wife. 

Spouses typically distribute the household chores.  Husbands may cut the yard and take out the trash.  While wives may prepare the meals and clean the laundry. 

Additionally, spouses enjoy the company of the other – their wit and their charm.  Injuries can change the marital relationship.

When a spouse is injured in an accident, the other is entitled to recover for:

     Loss of services;

     Loss of society;

     Loss of comforts; and yes, even the

     Loss of sexual pleasures.
