When I represent clients in personal injury matters, I investigate the facts and give them my candid advice, based on my years of experience. From there, I will work with my clients to build a strategy that helps them reach their goals.
What Kind of Compensation Can You Recover?
In personal injury cases, the person injured is given the chance to earn compensation for their pain and suffering, typically paid by the person found to be at fault. There are two major types of compensation or damages that you can recover: economic damages and non-economic damages.
This type of monetary recovery is linked to those that are tangible, measurable damages. Economic damages can include any or all of the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages
- Household services
- Physical or vocational rehabilitation
- Property damage
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Lost earning capacity
Because it is fairly simple to obtain proof that these expenses are linked to your injury and the accident that caused them, they fall under economic damages.
On the other hand, there are some forms of compensation that are more subjective and difficult to put a value on. These non-monetary losses can include:
- The injury itself
- Disability or disfigurement
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering as you recover and beyond
- Loss of companionship
- Losses related to your reputation
Many cases that end in a financial settlement typically include both economic and non-economic damages. To see what types of possible damages your case involves, contact a knowledgeable personal injury attorney today.
