Types of Damages
When you file a personal injury suit with the assistance of a knowledgeable Kentucky personal injury attorney, you can expect that you should receive both economic and non-economic damages when the legal process concludes. Economic damages are those intended to compensate a victim and their family for quantifiable expenses incurred due to an unexpected injury. These generally include medical bills related to hospitalization and the expense of continued care but also the cost of lost income, which becomes an issue when the victim was a major breadwinner for the family. In a wrongful death suit, survivors can also ask for damages to pay for funeral expenses and other costs related to the loss. Non-economic damages are harder to quantify but are no less legally viable; these include damages related to a victim’s pain and suffering and, in a wrongful death suit, the loss of companionship and intimacy the survivors face in the absence of their loved one. During your consultation, a seasoned Kentucky personal injury attorney can answer any questions you may have about economic and non-economic compensation.
There is a third kind of compensation you may receive as a result of a personal injury suit or settlement. It is important to understand that most of these cases hinge on having a skilled personal injury lawyer who can demonstrate to a jury that an injury or death was caused by the negligence or misconduct of another person or party. Should a jury determine that this carelessness or recklessness is particularly egregious, they may choose to award punitive damages as well. Punitive damages are intended to deter the responsible person or party and others from engaging in similar misconduct or negligence in the future, lessening the likelihood of such a tragedy occurring again.
