Economic vs. Non-Economic Damages

Compensation for personal injury claims generally fall under one of two umbrellas: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages (also called “specific” damages) are intended to compensate injury victims for measurable, verifiable monetary losses, such as missed wages, damage to personal property, and medical bills related to the accident. Non-economic damages (“general” damages), on the other hand, compensate for non-tangible losses like emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, or even reputational damage.

Our New Orleans accident lawyers are highly skilled in the calculation of damages, leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to maximize the value of our clients’ cases. If you have questions about how much your case may be worth, our injury law firm is ready to offer you a free consultation.
