Types of Damages

Damages are a form of compensation that help cover a victim’s medical expenses, property repairs, and other expenses that were incurred because of a negligent party. A victim who files a personal injury claim may possibly be able to recover:

  1. Compensatory Damages – These kinds of damages cover a wide spectrum of current or future expenses. They are categorized into two groups:
    • Actual – Actual damages often cover medical expenses and lost wages.
    • General – General damages usually cover pain and suffering, mental anguish, or physicalpain.
  2. Punitive Damages – Damages that are sought as a form of punishment to a party that acted negligently or under intentional misconduct. These could be limited according to state law.
  3. Court Costs and Attorney’s Fees – Damages that are meant to cover representation expenses to the plaintiff.

  2. Property Damage – This type of compensation helps you recover lost property costs (e.g. your car in a car accident).
  3. Pain and Suffering – This type of compensation differs from client to client as it is compensation that covers quality of life changes. It’s not unusual for your lawyer to enlist the aid of qualified experts to analyze these changes and to provide testimony if necessary.

  5. Loss of Income and Future Earnings – This type of compensation helps you to recover any lost or future wages if your injury does not allow you to return back to work.
  6. Loss of Consortium – Personal injury accidents don’t just affect victims, but they affect the loved ones of the victims as well. This type of compensation helps cover injuries that affect a victim’s ability to interact with their loved ones.
