Types of Personal Injury Damages

A personal injury occurs when a person is injured because of another individual’s negligence or failure to act reasonably. Victims of personal injuries may be entitled to compensation for their physical and emotional injuries. The legal term for the compensation you deserve is referred to as “damages.”

Personal Injury Compensation

Dealing with a personal injury can by physically, emotionally, and financially draining on the victims and their families. Although some victims will turn to insurance companies to provide money for costs and damages, many will find their claims denied or inadequately addressed.

A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you determine the amount of your damages and help build a strong case against those who have wronged you or your family.

Personal injury compensation can include two types of damages: compensatory and non-compensatory.

Compensatory damages typically involve compensation for monetary losses including:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Property Damage
  • Lost Opportunity

Personal injury victims may also be entitled to non-compensatory damages, which are those that cannot be easily quantified in dollars, but still affect victims and their loved ones.

Non-compensatory damages may include:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Mental Anguish and Emotional Distress

Non-compensatory damages are sometimes referred to as punitive damages, which compensate victims for their diminished quality of life caused by personal injury. In many states, there is a cap on how much a person may receive for punitive damages; however, the cap typically varies per the type of case involved.
