What types of damages could I be entitled to?
There are two broad categories of damages awarded in a personal injury case, compensatory and punitive.
These compensate the claimant for loss, injury, or harm suffered by the claimant as a result of another’s recklessness. The majority of personal injury damages are, in fact, classified as compensatory. These damages are intended to make the plaintiff “whole” from a monetary standpoint. Common examples of compensatory damages in personal injury cases include:
- Medical Treatment
- Loss of Income
- Damaged Property
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Enjoyment and/or Consortium
Consult with one of our attorneys to learn how we can ensure that you receive all the benefits you are entitled to.
Punitive damages are technically not awarded to compensate the plaintiff. Punitive damages are awarded as a way to reform or deter the defendant from pursuing a course of action.
Before being awarded punitive damages there are certain conditions that have to be met. Two points that stand out in most cases are
- Assessing if the defendant’s actions were malicious, intentional or grossly negligent.
- Looking at similar cases to determine if punitive damages were awarded.
It should be noted as well that punitive damages are often capped at a certain amount and in Pennsylvania for example, that amount is $250,000.

How Soon Should I Contact an Attorney?
You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. After a serious injury it might be hard to know what to do next. You might have doctor’s visits, surgeries or even physical therapy. You may have to find someone to cover your shifts at work, help with domestic duties, and assist with child care. With so much to do, you might forget or not even know to file a personal injury claim. Its best to contact a personal injury attorney so they can begin to work on your case.
What will my lawyer do for me?
Your lawyer is working to ensure you get the compensation you deserve in your personal injury suit. After assessing your case they will;
- Investigate your injuries and the negligent circumstances involved;
- Investigate the scene of the accident;
- Request documentation;
- Review documents, photos, and videos;
- Question witnesses;
- Work with medical experts;
We use this information when seeking a settlement or as evidence if we have to go to court. So its imperative that we have as much evidence as possible to get the highest compensation amount.
