If I have been assaulted by my ex, is it worth suing for hospital fees?
Question Details: I don't know what kind of case if have against him. He as assaulted me over and over now he is constantly trying to get in contact with me. During one of his last assaults he struck me in the eye and now Im experiencing symptoms of future blindness. I want to seek medical attention but I was wondering if I should sue for my hospital fees?
Don't sue yet. Find out what is happening with your eye and your vision first. If it appears that you will suffer vision impairment in the future, you will have a potentially large claim for "pain and suffering"--for the life impairment and disabiltiy you will suffer in the future, for lost earning potential (if it will affect your ability to work or earn), as well as for projected future medical costs. Find out more about your condition, the impact on you, and the likely future medical costs, then take that information to a personal injury attorney to evalute a potential lawsuit.
You can sue for your medical bills , pain and suffering, and wage loss.
Compensation for the medical bills is straight reimbursement. Pain and suffering is an amount in addition to the medical bills based on the medical reports which document your injuries. Compensation for wage loss is straight reimbursement.
