Damages in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
When clients sit down with us during their initial FREE consultation, many will ask the question “What is my case actually worth?” In personal injury law, the answer to that is “damages” or the emotional, mental, and physical cost of your accident and injuries. In some cases, it may also mean punishing the defendant for their behavior of conduct. Our West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys know that in personal injury cases, monetary damages are paid to the person who suffered injuries (the plaintiff) by the person who is legally responsible (defendant) or their insurer.
The most common type of compensation is referred to as economic damages or the money that was lost because of your accident and injuries. Economic damages may also be referred to as “compensatory” damages and include lost income, medical bills, property loss, etc. Since these damages are objective in nature, it’s difficult for the other party to argue against why you deserve to be compensated for your losses.
Conversely, you have non-economic damages or damages that relate to what you’ve had to endure mentally and physically as a result of your injuries. These do not involve any money that’s been lost or spent by you. Non-economic damages will include emotional distress, pain and suffering, worsening of a previous injury, and more. The value of these damages tends to be more subjective. At the Graves Thomas Rotunda Injury Law Group must present a stronger argument for the money you deserve. Whether we need to sit at the negotiating table to litigate aggressively in the court, we’ll do all that it takes to help you get maximum amount as compensation.
