What damages are recoverable in a personal injury case in El Paso?
In every personal injury case, there are three types of damages that can be recovered.
The first is economic damages. Those include out-of-pocket expenses, money that you owe to other people as a result of the injury producing incident. Examples include medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage.
The second category of damages recoverable in a personal injury case are what are called non-economic damages. Those damages include pain, suffering, and mental anguish. Those are damages that are difficult to put an exact number on because their value differs from person to person.
Lastly, the third type of damages recoverable are punitive or exemplary damages. Those damages are only available when there is gross negligence. Gross negligence is typically an intentional act or a willful and wanton disregard for safety.
