Personal Injury Compensation: Economic & Non-Economic Damages
If you’ve been injured in Billings, or anywhere across Montana, as the result of someone else’s negligence, contact us today and we can discuss whether there are grounds to file a personal injury claim. If you have a case, the amount of your compensation will be based upon your measurable injuries, or damages, arising from the incident. Damages serve to compensate, or make whole, the injured party, and return them to their pre-injury condition or at least as close as possible.
Compensation is usually divided into two categories: economic, or special damages, and non-economic, or general damages. Economic damages are losses that may be documented by bills, receipts, and business and wage records, and usually include medical bills, lost wages, and other measurable losses. Non-economic damages are intangible losses that are usually more difficult to quantify, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
