What damages can I recover in an injury lawsuit?

One of the questions that many clients ask when they come in for their consultation is what compensation they may receive if they win their lawsuit. In tort law, this compensation is known as “damages.” Damages can be economic and noneconomic in nature due to the fact that injured parties often face burdens in many aspects of their lives after an accident.
Economic damages exist to compensate an injured party for the financial burdens they have faced as a result of the accident. These financial burdens often include the cost of medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation or physical therapy, the cost of hiring additional assistance around the house, and more.
Noneconomic damages are very serious as well and should not be overlooked in an accident case. While the financial burdens of an accident are very difficult, the emotional burdens may impact an individual for the rest of their lives. Noneconomic damages often include the loss of independence, the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering caused by the accident, the emotional trauma associated with the accident, and any loss of relationship that may have occurred as a result of the accident.
