In certain circumstances, we can help you recover what are called “non-economic damages.” This is most commonly thought of as “pain and suffering,” but non-economic damages include several different categories of damages, such as: pain; suffering; mental anguish; inconvenience, etc.

It is important to know that these non-economic damages are not always available. If you are injured in a car crash you may only recover these types of damages if you suffer from: significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function; permanent injury; significant scarring or disfigurement; or death. In these limited circumstances we can help you recover for things that are impossible to measure, the daily impact your injuries have on your life.

No one wishes for a permanent injury, or for pain and suffering, but they can be a reality in all sorts of crashes, “big” and “small,” high-speed and low-speed, obvious property damage or minimal dents/scratches. We will meet with your treating physicians to help prove one of these permanent injuries if it exists. And we will get the jury to understand what it is like to be in your shoes for even just one day, and for the rest of your life.
