The law regarding what you can collect intends for you to be put back to the same position you were before the wreck. You cannot be made better than you were, but you are to be made whole.
Money damages typically available include property damages (such as vehicle repair or replacement), medical expenses (including past and future medical care), lost wages (past and present) and pain and suffering.
