What Are Non-Economic Damages?
Non-economic damages, sometimes called general damages, is compensation awarded for non-monetary losses experienced by accident victims.
These losses do not have a specific dollar amount, but they still have a profound impact on the victim’s quality of life.
Examples of non-economic damages are:
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Loss of Companionship
- Loss of Consortium
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Non-economic damages are a crucial aspect of personal injury claims and play a significant role in determining the overall compensation amount awarded to the victim. They aim to provide a sense of justice and help the victim recover from the intangible losses suffered.
Proving Non-Economic Damages
Determining the exact monetary value of non-economic damages in personal injury cases can be challenging.
They can vary greatly from case to case and often require the input of outside experts, like mental health professionals, to arrive at a fair calculation.
Several factors play a role in calculating non-economic damages, including the severity of the injury and accident, the emotional state of the jury, and the experience and skill of the plaintiff’s attorney.
Working with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney is crucial because they can help ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your non-economic damages.
