What Types of Compensation Can You Seek?

At Brown & Crouppen, we’ll advise you on the type of compensation you can seek based on the worth of your case. These include economic and non-economic awards. Economic damages compensate for the expenses stemming from your accident and injury. Non-economic compensation is harder to quantify impacts on your life. The following are some of the kinds of losses you can pursue compensation for:

Economic Damages:

  • Medical Expenses: You can seek reimbursement for medical bills for hospital stays, surgeries, medication, and ongoing treatment related to your injuries. Recoverable expenses may also include future medical costs.
  • Lost Wages: You can seek reimbursement for wages lost due to missed work during your recovery period. If your injury prevents you from returning to work, you can pursue future lost earnings.
  • Property Damage: You can pursue compensation for damages to your vehicle or personal belongings from the incident.

Non-Economic Damages:

  • Pain and Suffering: You can pursue compensation for physical and emotional pain, mental anguish, and the impact of the injury on your daily life.
  • Loss of Consortium: You can seek compensation if the injury affects your interaction with family members and intimate relationship with your spouse.
  • Decreased life enjoyment: Your injury may prevent you from enjoying the activities you previously engaged in.

In some circumstances, you can pursue punitive damages. A court decides on and awards punitive damages if the at-fault party’s actions are deemed especially egregious or intentional. Punitive damages punish the at-fault party as opposed to compensating your losses. 

Our seasoned personal injury lawyers will determine the full value of your losses and pursue the full amount of the compensation you deserve.

What Are the Common Causes of Gas Station Injuries?

Gas station injuries can occur due to several factors. Gas station owners and operators have a legal duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition, free from hazards to patrons. However, they often fail to meet their responsibilities, leading to accidents.  

These are just a few of the most common causes of injury at gas stations. 

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Spilled fuel, oil, or other liquids can create hazardous conditions, leading to slips and falls. Additionally, uneven pavement, inadequate lighting, or lack of warning signs can contribute to such accidents. Our gas station lawyers understand the complexities of premises liability cases and will provide advice, guidance, and representation throughout the legal process. 

Car Accidents

Gas stations are often crowded areas with vehicles coming and going. Negligent drivers can cause accidents resulting in injuries to pedestrians, customers, or even gas station employees. At Brown & Crouppen Law Firm, our car accident lawyers have successfully represented numerous clientt cases. We’ll help you file your claim and understand your rights. 

Violent Attacks

Unfortunately, gas stations are frequent targets for criminals, particularly those establishments open during late night hours or with a history of criminal acts. Customers and employees can be victims of assault, robbery, or other violent acts due to poor lighting, inadequate security measures, or limited entrance and exit visibility. Our gas station injury lawyers will assist you in holding the gas station owner or operator responsible for failing to provide a safe environment.

Other Dangerous Conditions

Gas stations are busy places with constant foot and vehicle traffic. Inadequate maintenance, broken equipment, or poorly designed structures can create dangerous conditions. Whether it’s a malfunctioning pump, a defective door, or a hazardous construction site, our gas station attorneys have the knowledge and experience to investigate the circumstances and hold responsible parties accountable.

What Are the Common Types of Injuries Seen in Gas Station Accidents?

Gas station injuries can vary, ranging from minor cuts and bruises to more severe and life-altering conditions. Some common injuries include the following:

  • Burns: Fuel spills can result in serious burn injuries, requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Broken bones and spinal cord injuries: Slips and falls, car accidents, or violent attacks can lead to fractures or broken bones, causing pain, immobility, and long-term consequences. Spinal cord injuries are often more severe, producing chronic pain or paralysis.
  • Head injuries: Falls sometimes lead to traumatic brain injuries, often leading to long-lasting effects on cognitive function and quality of life.
  • Cuts and lacerations: Broken glass, sharp edges, or malfunctioning equipment cause cuts and lacerations, which may require stitches or surgery.

What Can You Do After You’re Injured at a Gas Station?

If you have been injured at a gas station, act as soon as possible to protect your right to receive compensation.

  • Get medical attention: Your health and well-being are the top priority. Promptly seek medical attention, even if your injuries seem minor at first. Along with receiving treatment, medical records will connect your injuries to the accident or incident, strengthening your claim. 
  • Document the incident: Gather evidence by taking photographs of the accident scene, your injuries, and any hazardous conditions that contributed to the incident.
  • Report the incident: Notify the gas station management and make sure you receive a copy of the incident report. Also, contact the police and get a police report, particularly when a crime or vehicle accident occurs.
