What type of damages can I receive in a personal injury claim?
A victim of personal injury can be awarded different types of damages, including compensatory damages and punitive damages.
The purpose of compensatory damages in a personal injury case is to compensate the victim for losses incurred in a personal injury claim.
If you are awarded special damages, you will be compensated for quantifiable monetary losses. This means that these are tangible damages that have a specified dollar amount. Special compensatory damages include:
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Medical bills
- Cost of future medical care
- Property damages or loss
- Costs associated with canceled trips or altered plans
If you are awarded general damages, you will be compensated for losses that don’t come with a price tag. General compensatory damages include:
- Emotional distress
- Pain & suffering
- Loss of consortium or companionship (the loss of intimate relations while someone is recovering from an injury)
Punitive damages are non-compensatory. This means that they are not awarded in order to compensate the victim of a personal injury claim. In special cases when the conduct of the accused was more than just negligent, punitive damages are awarded.
If malice intent can be proven, punitive damages can be awarded to the victim. This is done to deter the defendant and other persons from doing the same action that caused harm to the victim.
