Compensatory Damages

Compensatory damages are the most common type of damages awarded in a personal injury case. These damages are meant to compensate the injured person for their losses. Compensatory damages can include medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are damages that are meant to punish the wrongdoer for their actions. These damages are generally awarded in cases where the wrongdoer acted with reckless disregard for the safety of others. Punitive damages are not available in all cases, and the amount of damages awarded will depend on the facts of the case.

Nominal Damages

Nominal damages are a type of damages that are awarded when the injured person has not suffered any actual losses. These damages are usually awarded when the wrongdoer has breached a contract or committed a tort, but the injured person has not suffered any actual losses as a result. Nominal damages are usually small amounts of money, such as a few hundred dollars.

Statutory Damages

Statutory damages are damages that are awarded in certain cases where the wrongdoer has violated a law. These damages are meant to punish the wrongdoer and to deter them from engaging in similar conduct in the future. Statutory damages are usually awarded in cases involving consumer protection laws or laws that protect the environment.

Special Damages

Special damages are damages that are awarded in cases where the injured person has suffered a specific type of loss. These damages are usually awarded in cases involving medical expenses, lost wages, or property damage. Special damages are meant to compensate the injured person for their actual losses.
