What Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?
There are three main types of damages, or compensation, an injury victim can pursue when filing a personal injury claim. These are economic damages, non-economic damages and punitive damages. Economic damages seek to compensate the injured party for their financial losses associated with their injury such as medical expenses or missed days at work due to the inability to work. Non-economic damages, maybe the most well-known of the damages, compensates the injured party for non-financial suffering such as pain and suffering, or mental anguish.
Because both economic and non-economic damages seek to compensate the injured party for a loss, they are known as compensatory damages. The only type of damages that seek to do anything other than compensate the injury victim is punitive damages. The main purpose of punitive damages is to punish the negligent party, because of this they are not often awarded.
