Depending on the nature of your losses and the defendant’s conduct, you might be eligible for the following:

  • Economic damages – easily quantifiable expenses such as medical bills and lost wages (both current and anticipated future losses)
  • Non-economic damages – emotional trauma such as pain and suffering, mental anguish and disfigurement
  • Punitive damages – an extra amount awarded very occasionally if the defendant’s conduct was outrageous (against a surgeon who operated on you while intoxicated, for example)
