Recovering Damages After an Accident
The right personal injury attorney can help you recover both economic and noneconomic damages after an accident. MATD is committed to fighting for maximum compensation for our clients.
There are different types of economic damages—or “tangible” damages—that you can claim in a personal injury case. These are losses like medical bills, lost income, and property damage. Within these broader categories are things like hospital stays, prescriptions, rehabilitation, and/or physical therapy. In Alabama, there’s no cap on how many damages someone may be awarded.
You may also be able to claim different kinds of noneconomic damages—or “intangible” damages—for the less quantifiable consequences of an accident. This includes things like “pain and suffering” damages, “mental anguish” damages, “disfigurement” damages, “chronic pain” damages, and “loss of enjoyment of life” damages. These are special kinds of losses that aren’t easily measured in numbers like dollars and cents.
Punitive damages are a special kind of damage that you can claim in a personal injury case. These are meant to punish the person who caused your injury. However, punitive damages are not available in every personal injury case and are always capped at either $500,000 or 3x the compensatory damages. Punitive damages will only be awarded in cases where it can be unequivocally proven through evidence that the defendant deliberately engaged in behaviors known to cause harm to the plaintiff.
