Lost Wages

If you are unable to work due to your injuries, you may be able to claim lost wages in a personal injury lawsuit. This includes any income that was lost by missing work and future estimated earnings if the injury prevents you from returning to work or working at the same capacity as before.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering is a non-economic damage that compensates for any physical and emotional pain experienced due to the injury. This can include disfigurement, disability, PTSD, and even loss of enjoyment in life.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages award an additional amount of money to punish an individual or entity who acted with gross negligence or malice and caused an injury. These are usually only awarded in cases of egregious misconduct or intentional harm.
