What Types of Damages Are Recoverable?

There are three types of damages available in a personal injury case – economic, non-economic, and punitive. Economic damages compensate for quantifiable losses such as medical bills and expenses and missed days at work due to your injury. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering and are limited by the State. Punitive damages are meant to punish the negligent party, as opposed to compensating for a specific loss, and as such they are not often awarded.
