Injury Damages

The calculation of damages in a personal injury case depends on the losses suffered by the injured party. Damages usually include medical expenses to treat injuries, or the cost to replace or fix damaged property. However, damages can include more than just money directly used to address injuries. If the injuries caused a person to miss work, damages can include lost wages. There's even a chance that you can recover for lost future wages - known as loss of earning capacity - if your injuries prevent you from working in the future. FindLaw's Injury Damages section provides information about how economic compensation plays out in personal injury cases. In this section, you can find articles about damages caps, a plaintiff's duty to mitigate damages, as well as a helpful damage estimate worksheet.
