Economic DamagesEconomic damages are the most common type of compensation awarded in a personal injury lawsuit. These damages are intended to reimburse you for any financial losses you have incurred due to the accident. This includes medical bills, lost wages, and any other out-of-pocket expenses. Economic damages are typically easier to calculate and are based on the actual costs associated with the injury.
Non-Economic DamagesNon-economic damages are intended to compensate you for any intangible losses you have suffered due to the accident. This includes pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of quality of life. These damages are more difficult to quantify and are typically awarded based on factors such as the severity of the injury and the impact it has had on your life.
Punitive DamagesPunitive damages are awarded in cases where the defendant’s behavior was particularly egregious. These damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter them from engaging in similar behavior in the future. Punitive damages are rarely awarded and are typically only available in cases involving gross negligence or intentional misconduct.
Wrongful Death DamagesWrongful death damages are available in cases where a person’s death was caused by another person’s negligence. These damages are intended to compensate the deceased person’s family for their losses, including medical bills, funeral expenses, and lost wages.
