A lawsuit can only award a monetary amount, called damages. If you’ve been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you need a top Chico and Yuba City Personal Injury Attorney with experience. We will seek damages which are awarded based on several factors and may fall under economic or non-economic damages. Economic damages are those that are easily calculated as the cost of the injuries sustained.
Medical expenses, lost wages, and vehicle repairs are common examples of economic damages. These amounts are automatically awarded if you win your case and should be the minimum amount offered in a settlement.
Non-economic damages are more ambiguous damages that cover items like pain and suffering or other items that are typically impossible to truly calculate.
The court will determine the amount of non-economic damages on a case by case basis. There are sometimes caps on non-economic damages.
