Damages in a Personal Injury Claim

When an individual in New Jersey is involved in an accident due to the negligence of another party, they may be faced with very significant injuries. Whether the accident was a motor vehicle accident, a slip and fall, a hotel accident, or any other type of accident, it is important for the injured party to hold the negligent party accountable. In a successful personal injury lawsuit, the injured party is able to recover significant compensation for the burdens that the accident has caused them to suffer. There are two different categories of damages that an injured party may be entitled to: economic damages and noneconomic damages.

Economic Damages

Individuals who suffer injuries in an accident may face significant economic burdens for quite some time afterward. Luckily, a personal injury case may allow the injured party to recover some of the finances lost due to the accident. Some of the economic damages that an individual may be able to recover in a personal injury case include the cost of medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages due to time out of work, and more.

Noneconomic Damages

When an injured party brings a lawsuit, they may also be entitled to damages that are noneconomic in nature. Some of the noneconomic damages that an individual may try to recover include pain and suffering, loss of independence, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
