Understanding the types of damages available to you is crucial when pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. Damages refer to the compensation awarded for losses and harms due to another party’s negligence or intentional actions. In this guide, we’ll explore the various types of damages you may be entitled to and how to navigate the process effectively.

Types of Damages Compensatory Damages

Compensatory damages aim to reimburse the injured party for actual losses incurred. They include economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages: These cover tangible financial losses like medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and future medical costs. They’re quantifiable based on actual and projected expenses.

Non-economic Damages: These compensate for intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium. They address the physical and emotional toll of the injury.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages, also called exemplary damages, aim to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior. They’re awarded for particularly reckless, malicious, or intentional actions.

Several factors influence the types and amount of damages awarded:

Severity of Injury: More severe injuries typically result in higher compensation.

Evidence: Strong evidence, including medical records and eyewitness accounts, impacts the outcome and compensation.

Negligence: The defendant’s degree of negligence affects the types and amount of damages. Reckless or intentional actions may lead to punitive damages.
