Types of Personal Injury Damages
There are two types of damages in a personal injury case. There are Compensatory Damages and Punitive Damages. Most cases fall under the former.
Compensatory damages refers to money awarded to a plaintiff to compensate for damages, injury, or another incurred loss.
The damages are awarded in civil court cases where loss has occurred as a result of the negligence or unlawful conduct of another party.
Punitive damages refers to the legal recompense that a defendant found guilty of committing a wrong or offense is ordered to pay on top of compensatory damages.
They are awarded by a court of law when compensatory damages are deemed to be insufficient.
These damages are intended to punish defendants whose conduct is considered grossly negligent or intentional to set an example to deter others from committing similar acts.
