What are Future Damages?
Whether you suffer an injury from a car accident, a careless premises owner, or even from a medical professional, these injuries could cause complications that may affect you drastically. Not only could these injuries affect you now, but also well into the future. That is why it is important that you and your professional legal representative discuss any future complications you may suffer as a result of your accident so you can make sure to include them in the compensation you pursue through a personal injury claim.
A number of plaintiffs will claim future damages in his or her civil lawsuit to ensure they are financially covered throughout the duration which they are affected. If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligent actions, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Understanding Future Damages
Future damages are any damage an injury victim will suffer in the months or years following his or her accident. Recovering future damages is especially important for those who have to miss work or become disabled after an accident. You may need future damages to help pay for the following expenses:
- Ongoing medical bills
- Prescription medication
- Physical therapy or any other type of rehabilitation
- Enduring emotional scarring and trauma
The consequences of an accident do not always fade quickly. Therefore, accounting for future damages during your case is essential.
