Unfortunately, the law can’t undo the harm that’s been caused to you by someone’s reckless or careless actions.

If you’ve been injured, you may be entitled to monetary damages for the harm. Damages fall into two general categories. Economic are sometimes called actual damages and non-economic, sometimes called general damages. Economic damages include things like medical expenses, lost income, and any out of pocket expenses you may have incurred. They’re typically capable of being calculated with a degree of certainty where noneconomic damages on the other hand are much more difficult to calculate. They include things like physical and mental pain and suffering, scarring, physical dismemberment, permanency of injury, your physical condition before and after the accident, and a number of other very nuanced factors. It takes the right attorney with the right experience to know what questions to ask and what evidence to present to convey the sometimes immeasurable loss that an injury can cause.
