Types of Special Damages

Special damages are a type of damages that are awarded to the plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit. These damages are designed to compensate the victim for losses that are specific to that individual. To win special damages, the plaintiff must prove that the injuries suffered were a direct result of the defendant’s negligence.

Special damages can be either economic or non-economic. Economic damages compensate the plaintiff for financial losses such as medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages are awarded for more intangible losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.

  • Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are a type of special damage that is sometimes awarded in personal injury cases. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for particularly egregious behavior and to deter others from engaging in similar conduct. Punitive damages are only awarded in cases where the defendant’s behavior was especially egregious and the plaintiff suffered severe injuries.

  • Compensatory Damages

Compensatory damages are the most common type of special damage awarded in personal injury cases. Compensatory damages are designed to make the plaintiff “whole” again by compensating them for their losses. Compensatory damages can be either economic or non-economic.

We Offer Contingency Fees, So You Don’t Have To Stress About Payments

One of the many reasons people are hesitant to get legal help is that they are worried about the cost. This is understandable, as legal fees can be pretty expensive.

At Sidhu Law, we understand this concern, and that is why we offer contingency fees. This means that you will only have to pay us if we successfully get you a settlement. If we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything.

This way, you can get the legal help you need without worrying about costs. In addition, if we win, our office only takes a percentage of the settlement, so you can be sure that you will still walk away with the majority of the compensation.
