Calculating Damages in a Personal Injury Claim
There are two types of damages in a personal injury case: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages are tangible, calculable damages while noneconomic damages are intangible things like pain and suffering that significantly detract from what a person’s life was before the accident. Your lawyer will work to get you the most money possible for both types of damages.
- Medical bills related to your accident – past, present, and future
- Lost wages due to your accident – past, present, and future
- Rehabilitation costs
- Property damages
- Lost earning capacity
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
Punitive damages can be awarded in personal injury cases where it can be proven by evidence that the defendant caused deliberate harm to the plaintiff. Punitive damages are meant to punish the person who hurt you and to discourage them from doing it again. In Alabama, punitive damages are limited to $500,000 or three times the compensatory damages awarded.
