What damages can you expect to recover?
Damages refers to the compensation you can recover for the injury done to you. There are mainly three types: economic, non-economic and punitive damages. Economic damages are the specific costs you incurred when getting treatment for your injury. Punitive damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future. They are not part of most personal injury cases. They are reserved for really serious cases where the at-fault party’s conduct was intentional or malicious as well.
Treatment for Economic Damages
Medical expenses: This covers your cost of treatment incurred in the past, currently being incurred and those that are reasonably anticipated.
Lost wages: This includes all the time you missed work because you were too injured to report for duty and all the time attending to medical appointments.
Lost earning capacity: If you were unable to continue working in your previous job as a result of your injuries and had to settle for a lower paying job, you may be entitled to this.
Cost of hiring someone to perform tasks for you around your household, owing to your inability to perform those tasks yourself.
Non-economic damages are usually awarded as compensation for non-monetary loss. The items under this head of compensation usually include:
Loss of consortium: This may mean a loss of companionship or an inability to maintain a sexual relationship, for example.
Loss of enjoyment: This refers to the impact your injuries have on your ability to perform day-to-day activities like hobbies, exercises and other recreational pursuits.
Pain and suffering
Punitive damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future. They are not part of most personal injury cases. They are reserved for really serious cases where the at-fault party’s conduct was intentional or malicious as well.
Under Florida law, the damages cap rule applies to the amount of money that the court can award as punitive damages. It limits the amount of damages to three times the amount of compensatory damages or $500,000 depending on which is greater.
Florida Damages Caps
Damages caps are laws that limit the amount of non-economic damages that can be awarded for a case. What this means is that if the jury awards a plaintiff an amount in damages, the court can override that decision under the damages cap rule.
A person who is between 26% and 50% can be responsible for up to $1million of your damages. If a person is found to be more than 50% responsible, that person can be held responsible for up to $2million of your damages.
