What Are Non-Economic Damages?

When you’re injured in a serious Alabama accident, you need to know who injured you and what your claim is worth. Unfortunately, determining the value of your claim may be easier said than done. You may have trouble getting answers, especially when you move beyond your financial losses. 

So what are non-economic damages? We offer some answers below, but an Alabama injury lawyer at Henry Dailey Law Firm can get in depth about your claim’s worth. If you’re struggling to get paid after an accident, reach out to a personal injury lawyer for help getting compensated for your injuries. 

What Are Non-Economic Damages? 

When you’re hurt, you may be due compensation for your damages from the at-fault party. These damages should cover all the financial, emotional, and mental suffering you experienced. Your economic damages specifically cover the financial part. 

While your finances may be on your mind after a costly accident, the trauma, pain, and anguish you’ve experienced are important, too. Your non-economic damages cover the compensation you’re due for intangible suffering, like the following: 

How to Calculate Non-Economic Damages

Here’s the key problem you may face when calculating your non-economic damages—these damages aren’t tangible. You’ll be unable to turn to any kind of price guide for answers about their value. These damages are instead based on the impact and severity of your suffering. 

For example, you may be due damages for the trauma you suffered because of a car accident. You may feel nervous about getting behind the wheel again, or you may have trouble driving on the highway. The compensation you receive may be greater if you’re unable to leave the house because of this trauma. 

Fortunately, your lawyer can help you make these calculations. Your lawyer has the tools you need to determine what your claim is worth, act within the time limits, and get compensated for all your damages.
