What Are Damages?


Hi I’m Jon Ostroff, thanks for visiting ostrofflaw.com. You’ve clicked on the question what are damages? I can answer that for you. Damages is the lawyer’s word for describing the harm that you suffered as a personal injury victim. There’s a couple categories of damages. One is your injury. Physical pain and suffering is your injury. There’s a value on that in a personal injury case and we call that the pain and suffering damages. If you suffered economic loss, you owe medial bills, you lost work and lost wages, those are the economic damages in your case. Also if your spouse is injured and you’re gonna suffer harm from that it’s gonna affect your relationship, that’s called loss of consortium damages. Those are the three most common damages that clients suffer in a personal injury situation. I hope that answers your questions. Thanks.
