Money damages may cover all expenses related to or stemming from the accident  including property damage (vehicle replacement or repair); all emergency room, diagnosis, surgical, testing and rehabilitation costs; costs associated with medical equipment and necessary home modifications (for instance, wheelchair ramps); lost income; and projected future medical expenses.
