Damages in Personal Injury Cases
“Damages” is a legal term that describes the types of compensation injury victims are able to pursue in a personal injury claim. There are three types of damages available economic, non-economic, and punitive damages, however, how many damages you will be eligible to pursue depends on the specifics of your case.
Economic damages, also called special damages, are responsible for compensating the injured party for any economic losses associated with an injury such as medical expenses, or missed wages. Non-economic damages, as the name suggests, compensates for non-tangible losses such as pain and suffering or mental anguish. Because non-economic damages compensate the injured party for losses that are not easily quantifiable they are also called general damages.
The last type of damages, punitive, differs from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the at-fault party for their negligent behavior. As punitive damages are severe, they not awarded in personal injury cases as often as economic and non-economic damages.
