Damages for Personal Injury Cases
Victims of personal injury incidents may be entitled to damages for compensatory damages and possibly punitive damages. Compensatory damages are monetary awards that attempt to reimburse a victim for medical expenses, lost wages, and property damages. Compensatory damages are also intended to cover intangible damages, such as disfigurement, disability, and loss of a normal life. Punitive damages, on the other hand, are meant to punish the negligent party for his or her wrongdoing, and deter future negligent or intentional wrongdoing.
The type and amount of damages that may be awarded in a personal injury case vary greatly, depending on the type of personal injury accident involved, the degree of negligence or responsibility, and the amount and type of injuries and damages suffered by the victim. As experienced Illinois personal injury lawyers, Minkow and Domin understand the complex nuances of the laws and legal theories involved with various personal injury cases.
