Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Case
Generally speaking, there are three types of damage available for claimants to pursue in a personal injury claim. These damages are economic, also called general damages, non-economic, also called special damages, and punitive damages. How many damages you can pursue and how much you will be able to recover depends entirely on the specifics of your case.
Economic and non-economic damages are similar in that they are both responsible for compensating the injured party for losses they suffer. Compensating for both tangible and intangible losses these damages cover:
- Loss of income
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Together, economic and non-economic damages are called “compensatory damages.” Unlike compensatory damages, the purpose of punitive is to punish the party responsible for causing the injury, rather than compensate the injury victims. Because of this, punitive damages are not often awarded.
