Accidents and injuries can happen almost anywhere and at anytime. In many cases, serious personal injuries are preventable, and they only happen because, for instance, another motorist is distracted behind the wheel or a restaurant owner fails to clean up a spill. When another party’s careless behavior causes your injuries, you should learn more about your options for financial compensation. You should not be worried about how you will pay your medical bills or how you will support your family because your injury has left you unable to return to your job.

When you file a personal injury claim in Riverdale, you are likely wondering what type of damages you may be eligible to receive. In general, a personal injury victim may be able to receive two different types of compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are intended to compensate an injury victim for two different types of losses: economic losses and noneconomic losses. As such, these two types of damages include:
In some cases, a plaintiff also may be able to obtain punitive damages. This type of damages award is not designed to compensate a victim for losses, but instead to punish the defendant for especially reckless or heinous behavior. However, punitive damages will only be awarded, according to the statute, when a plaintiff can “show by clear and convincing evidence that the defendant’s conduct was with evil motive or with a reckless and outrageous indifference to a highly unreasonable risk of harm and with a conscious indifference to the rights and safety of others.”
