While the specific amount of compensation you can recover will depend on the specifics of your case, the types of damages an injury victim can pursue in a personal injury case typically include:
- economic damages
- non-economic damages
- punitive damages
Economic damages compensate the injured party for financial losses, such as medical expenses or missed days at work due to the inability to work. Non-economic damages, as the name suggests, compensates the injured party for non-financial suffering, like pain and suffering, or mental anguish. The last type of damages differ from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party, as such they are not often awarded.

What Justifies a Personal Injury Case?
Personal injury cases deal with acts that have injured or caused harm to another. The central question in determining if an injury justifies a personal injury case is whether or not the injury resulted from negligence on the behalf of an individual, company, or other entity. More specifically, negligence deals with the “duty of care,” which people owe each other by default in many situations.
- To prove negligence and win a personal injury case, you must show:
- The person who harmed you (the defendant) owed you (the plaintiff) a legal duty of care
- The defendant violated their duty toward you
- You suffered an injury
- The defendant’s violation caused your injury
