Frequently Asked Questions

What types of damages can I seek if I file a personal injury lawsuit?

Personal injury occurs when someone causes damages and injuries to another person negligently, recklessly or intentionally. The victim is entitled to compensation to for the financial, physical and emotional toll of the other person’s actions.

In a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party may seek economic, noneconomic and punitive damages. The economic damages include out-of-pocket expenses, medical bills, unemployment resulting for injury and lost wages. Noneconomic damages are not monetary. They include, pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.

A personal injury victim may also receive punitive damages. The victim can request punitive damages but cannot state a specific amount. If a judge or jury decides to award the injured party punitive damages, the amount cannot be more than three times of the economic and noneconomic damages combined or a total of $500,000 dollars. Punitive damages are mean to deter the defendant and others from similar acts.
