- Medical Bills – Most injuries will require medical attention and medical bills can accumulate quickly.

Victims can also seek to recover costs related to future medical care they will need as a result of their injuries.
- Lost Wages – Injured individuals may seek compensation for lost wages caused by their injuries, as well as future lost wages if the injuries prevent them from returning to gainful employment.
- Pain and Suffering – Damages for past, present and future pain and suffering can also be sought against a defendant.
