Types of Damages in Personal Injury Cases

A closer look at compensation in a personal injury case

"How much is my case worth?" is one of the first questions many injury victims have. It's typically a difficult question to answer at the beginning of a case, since so many factors can come into play. While circumstances are different in every case, in general if you are injured in an accident due to negligence, you have a right to pursue damages, or financial compensation for your loss.

If you or someone you know was injured due to the negligence of another party, contact a North Carolina personal injury attorney to see if we can help. Contact the Law Offices of James Farrin. We're prepared to hear your story and chart out the best course of action. Call 1-866-900-7078 for a free case evaluation.

You may be entitled to damages for out-of-pocket expenses (for example, replacement of property, medical bills, lost wages and rehabilitation).

The following is a brief list of other damages you may be able to pursue:

  • Loss of future earning opportunities
  • Loss of consortium (harm to your marriage)
  • Emotional suffering
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of business opportunities
  • Disability
  • Inability to enjoy life
  • Punitive damages (which are meant to punish the negligent party or parties)
