If you are thinking about filing a personal injury lawsuit because of a car accident or some other accident that left you with monetary, physical and/or emotional damages, the liable party may be held accountable for compensatory relief.
What Is Your Case Worth?
Most personal injury and car accident damages are called economic and noneconomic, and are intended to compensate the injured party, the plaintiff, due to loss from an accident or injury.
How do you know what your case is worth? Many facts are taken into consideration including: medical treatment, property loss, emotional distress, loss of income, and loss of enjoyment or companionship. In some cases where the person at fault, or defendant, is excessively reckless, punitive damages may be awarded on top of economic and noneconomic damages. Punitive damages are usually applied to punish the defendant for an outrageously careless act.
