Economic and Non Economic Damages in a Personal Injury Case

https://www.727injury.com (727) 381-2300 St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas

In this video. What I'd like to discuss with you is the fact that we have two different types of damages. Typically in a personal injury case that we deal with, we have economic damages. Those are damages for medical bills, hospital stays, things of that sort and then non-economic damages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life. These types of, these types of damages oftentimes aren't fully realized until the case gets set for trial. What I mean by that is most insurance carriers and these days aren't giving a lot of those intangible or non economic damage values pre suit and so we have a lot of clients that are really puzzled by this because they might not ever be able to, let's say go zip lining ever again or they might not ever be able to go play golf again. This is a pain and suffering noneconomic type of damage that insurance companies, at least from the pre suit standpoint, meaning during the claims process aren't putting a lot of value on.

This is why it's very important to know your law firm has the ability to go to trial and hold these insurance companies accountable for your true value, your whole value of the damages that you've incurred, including those noneconomic type damages, such as pain and suffering. And so most of the times, those valued types of, um, uh, damages related to pain and suffering really get attacked and really get developed during a lawsuit. So it's important to know that when you're talking to a potential attorney to hire that attorney and those law firms have the ability to file a lawsuit and go the distance to go to trial to make sure you get the full value of your case for your personal injury case, especially here in St Petersburg, Florida.
