Allowable Damages in Personal Injury Cases

If you have suffered a personal injury through the fault of someone else, you may be able to collect damages (aka money) through the court system. As an injured party, you are not limited to recover only the specific amount of money an accident caused you to spend - such as a hospital bill. Instead, damages can be classified into two general categories: economic and non-economic. Economic damages are more tangible and can generally be found as the amount of money spent as a result of the accident, such as the amount of medical expenses. Non-economic damages can be awarded for things like pain and suffering - which may not have an evident, specific dollar amount like a hospital bill.
