Damage to property can happen at the same time as a personal injury. As a result, an injured party may need to recover compensation not just for their injuries but also for the damaged property.

About Personal Injury and Property Damage

Accidents can cause mild to severe physical injuries as well as emotional and psychological injuries. Accordingly, physical, emotional, or psychological injuries are all considered personal injuries.  

In addition to personal injuries, it is possible for property to become damaged in an accident. Damage may happen to real property, which refers to any property that isn’t removable or is fixed in place. Common types of real property include houses, fences or walls, land, or any other building. 

Property that is movable is considered personal property. Cars are perhaps one of the most common types of personal property to become damaged in an accident but other examples include boats, clothing, and even artwork. 

Compensation for Personal Injuries

Personal injuries are not always just physical, bodily damage. Personal injuries include emotional distress as well as psychological issues, like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

When seeking compensation for personal injuries, it’s important to consider all the ways an accident has left someone injured so that they may be properly and fairly compensated. 

Some types of personal injury damages that may be compensated in Bellevue include:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Future loss of wages
  • Emotional or psychological distress
  • Pain and suffering

Compensation for Damage to Property

When someone is injured in an accident, it is also possible for them to experience property damage as well. Car accidents are the most common scenario where both injuries and property damage can occur. 

In situations where property has been damaged in an accident, it may be possible to recover compensation for damages. Often, compensation for property damage is sought from insurance companies. Depending on the situation, the liable party’s insurance may pay for the damage. Sometimes, in cases where the property was damaged by someone else, they may receive assistance from their own insurance coverage. 

Vehicle repairs or replacement are common types of property damage that people seek compensation for but there are other types of property damage that may be covered in an accident, for example: 

  • Damage to items inside of the vehicle
  • Rental car expenses
  • Damage to a building, wall, or fence
  • Injuries to a pet
