Types of Compensation Awarded in a Personal Injury Case

The goal of any personal injury claim is to recover compensation equal to the losses the accident caused. Some of these losses are economic, and it is easy to calculate their value. On the other hand, some are not so clear-cut, but accident victims are still entitled to seek compensation for their worth. 

Below we have described the economic, non-economic, and punitive damages individuals can seek in personal injury cases. 

Economic Damages

Economic damages refer to the financial losses suffered by an injured party. These damages are quantifiable and can be proven through documentation and evidence. 

Examples include:

  • Medical expenses for hospital visits, treatments, procedures, rehabilitation, assistive devices, and medication. 
  • Lost income that results from an inability to work, including past and future earnings. 
  • Property damage to a vehicle or any other item of value. 
  • The cost of hiring someone to perform household tasks such as cleaning or maintenance.
  • Travel expenses to obtain adequate medical care for injuries. 
  • Funeral or burial expenses in cases where a person died because of injuries they sustained in an accident. 

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are intangible losses that are sometimes difficult to quantify. Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional anguish, loss of consortium, disfigurement, and scarring could qualify as non-economic damages. Because these things are subjective, a personal injury lawyer must make a compelling case for why a person ought to receive them. This is one of many reasons to hire an experienced attorney who has demonstrated the ability to skillfully advocate for their clients. 

Punitive Damages

In cases where the at-fault party was intentionally reckless or malicious, a judge can order the party to pay punitive damages.
