Special Damages in Personal Injury Cases

by | Jan 14, 2020

Information regarding non-economic damages from personal injury cases such as pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of income & salary, and aggravation of a previously existing condition.

Damages for Physical and Emotional Pain and Suffering

If you’ve been injured in a car crash or slip and fall accident anywhere in South Florida, we believe that you deserve to be made whole again for any physical injuries that you’ve sustained.

Often, when I speak to clients about compensation for their injuries, they only think about their out-of-pocket expenses, medical bills, and property damages. The focus on these “economic” damages is obvious: they all have easily calculated dollar amounts.

However, injured clients can also receive compensation for “non-economic damages,” which are losses that don’t have hard and fast replacement values or set dollar amounts. These non-economic damages include things such as:

  • The mental and emotional pain and suffering caused by your physical injuries,
  • Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function,
  • Scarring, disability, or disfigurement,
  • The loss of a job or a decreased ability to earn money in the future; or
  • Aggravation of a previously existing condition.

If we can establish that your accident has caused any of these things, we will work with you to determine the monetary value of these emotional losses in the past and in the future so you get the full amount of compensation you deserve for your injuries.
