Can I Be Compensated for a Vacation Missed Due to Hospitalization?

As part of a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim against a liable party, you are entitled to seek damages to compensate you for the full extent of your losses as a result of that injury. Often, these include economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages, also called pain and suffering. Other economic damages indirectly incurred as a result of your injury, such as activities missed while you were incapacitated from your injuries you had already paid for, may be compensated for in certain cases. If you were not able to exercise your vacation days as a result of your injuries, you may be able to claim those as lost wages. Being compensated for prepaid airfare or hotel stays, that you cannot be issued a refund for, may be more of a challenge when dealing with some insurance companies, as it may be hard to demonstrate you suffered those losses as a result of the action or inaction of the liable party. If you were able to go on your vacation, despite being injured, but were limited in what you could do, you can be compensated for this as part of your non-economic damages, or pain and suffering.

Pain and suffering is a standard industry term used to encompass the physical, emotional and psychological distress inflicted upon you by the accident or injury. There is no standard formula for figuring out how much your non-economic damages will be. However, they reflect, in part, the total sum of economic damages to the extent that the medical treatment and other ordeals you went through as a result of the accident or injury all came at a cost of time, inconvenience and distress. Missing out on enjoying your vacation due to an injury is a missed experience and it may have even caused you physical pain if you had to travel before being fully healed. These factors can be taken into consideration when determining your non-economic damages however, in most cases it will be an insurance adjuster or a jury who will decide how much you should be awarded. Personal injury cases can be complex, especially if you are seeking compensation beyond direct medical costs. Consult with an experienced Georgia personal injury attorney if you are seeking compensation for a missed vacation.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
