Damages You Can Recover in Personal Injury Cases
When filing a personal injury case, there are three main types of damages an injury victim can pursue, economic damages, non-economic damages and punitive damages. Economic damages, as the name suggests, seek to compensate the injured party for their financial losses associated with their injury such as medical expenses or missed workdays. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensates for non-financial suffering such as pain and suffering, or mental anguish. The only type of damages that seeks to do anything other than compensate the injury victim is punitive damages. Instead the purpose of these damages is to punish the negligent party, as such they are not often awarded.
