What Damages Are Available In Personal Injury Cases?
There are two types of damages in a personal injury case. There are compensatory damages and punitive damages. Most cases fall under the former.
- Compensatory damages — This is the usual type of damage that is awarded in personal injury cases. The idea here is that the defendant is trying to compensate for the damages and injury that he/she has inflicted. The goal is to make you, the plaintiff, feel "whole" again. There are many types of compensatory damages, including lost income, medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering.
- Punitive damages — Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages are awarded on top of compensatory damages due to special cases. If the defendant is deemed extremely careless in his/her actions, punitive damages are in place in order to "punish" the defendant and prevent similar negligence in the future.
