What Can I Recover Compensation for After an Injury?
There are three categories of compensation, also called damages, that an injury victim can pursue compensation for, special, general, and punitive damages. Special damages compensate for tangible losses an injury victim suffers such as medical expenses, and missed days at work. Since special damages compensate for financial losses, they are also called economic damages. General damages, on the other hand, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. Since these types of damages are often difficult to quantify, they are also called non-economic damages.
The last category of compensation is called punitive damages, these damages are meant to punish the negligent party rather than compensate for a specific loss. As such they are not often awarded. The state of Tennessee does place a cap on some damages in some situations, an attorney can inform you how these laws may affect your specific case.
