recovered, can it be a valid damage claim although it's temporary?
You can claim both permanent and temporary damages. Of course it's easier to prove your claim if you have supporting documentation such as medical records, pictures, witness statements etc. However, prosecuting your own case without legal representation is reckless. Consult your case with an attorney.
Not much detail provided. Have you had full and proper medical evaluation of your condition, symptoms, injuries? If you are lucky, you have recovered and wont have ongoing problems. However head injuries can be difficult to document/prove, as well as to recover from, depending on the injury. Id suggest you not settle until you are really sure from a medical standpoint, that you have made a complete recovery. There are complex time reqmnts imposed by law, so you should consult with an atty to make sure you comply and don't lose your rights.
If you were injured in a car crash and suffered personal injuries you are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of income, and property damage. The damage settlement amount, or jury verdict for the pain and suffering element of the damage amount is based on the degree of injury and the longevity of the symptoms. Therefore physical pain symptoms that disappear in 6 months have a lesser value than symptoms that last for a longer time period or are permanent. Temporary symptoms do have a value for settlement purposes and you are entitled to monetary compensation even if you are fortunate enough to fully recover.
