CATASTROPHIC INJURY CASE COMPENSATION
If you have been catastrophically injured, you may be eligible to pursue three different types of compensation: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages. Economic damages are awarded to injury victims in order to cover financial losses suffered as a result of their accident. Economic damages can include medical bills, costs associated with rehabilitation or long-term medical care, loss of income, and loss of ability to earn income in the future. Non-economic damages compensate for a person’s pain and suffering and the loss of quality or enjoyment of life. When catastrophic injury results in wrongful death, non-economic damages may also include loss of companionship, loss of emotional and financial support, and more. In cases involving particularly egregious negligence, punitive damages may be awarded to a victim in order to punish the responsible party and deter any future misconduct.
