What Damages Can You Collect in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

In a civil lawsuit, you can collect two main types of damages associated with your personal injury: economic and non-economic damages. In some cases, you may qualify for punitive damages as well.

Economic damages involve the tangible, out-of-pocket losses you suffer due to the accident. These may include past and future medical bills, surgeries, physical therapy, and disability accommodations. You may also recover funds for property damage, lost wages, and medications.

On the other hand, non-economic damages are the emotional losses you cannot quantify with a receipt or invoice. These may include chronic pain, the loss of quality of life, disfigurement, and mental anguish. Non-economic damages also apply to the development of mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety.

Courts assign punitive damages to punish the at-fault party and discourage bad behavior, not to compensate you for a specific loss. You are eligible for punitive damages if the at-fault party acted in a way that was fraudulent, malicious, or exhibited willful and wanton conduct. The amount of punitive damages you receive cannot exceed your actual damages.
