Personal Injury Compensation: Economic & Non-Economic Damages

If you’ve been injured in Denver, or anywhere across Colorado, as the result of someone else’s negligence, contact me today and we can discuss whether there is grounds to file a personal injury claim. If you have a case, the amount of your compensation will be based upon your measurable injuries, or damages, arising from the incident. Damages serve to compensate, or make whole, the injured party, and return them to their pre-injury condition (or as close as possible).

Compensation is usually divided into two categories: economic, or special damages, and non-economic, or general damages. Economic damages are losses that may be documented by bills, receipts, and business and wage records, and usually include medical bills, lost wages, and other measurable losses. Non-economic damages are intangible losses that are usually more difficult to quantify, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.

What’s My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The worth of a personal injury lawsuit is based upon the quantifiability of the damages incurred. These damages are measured in terms of the amount of money lost (and anticipated to be lost in the future) on medical bills, wages, earning capacity, and pain and suffering. There is no black-and-white answer to how much a case may be worth, as factors such as health history, mitigationof damages, and the patient’s compliance regarding accident-related medical treatment can increase or decrease an award significantly.

If you were recently injured due to the negligence of another, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you achieve a fair resolution. It’s essential that your legal counsel accurately assess the damages you may be entitled to.
