BROOKLYN PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY Personal injury lawsuits come about when individuals suffer injuries or are caused damage by either careless or intentional actions of another entity, or are harmed by dangerous or defective products. Once a court of law determines that the offending party is liable, or legally responsible, for the injury or damages they may be forced to monetarily compensate the victims for their damages. DAMAGES IN A PERSONAL INJURY CASE There are two categories of damages that can be awarded in a personal injury case: compensatory damages, and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are awards that are intended to put the injured party back in the same position that they would have been in had they not been injured, such as medical bills and lost wages. Punitive damages are damages that are sometimes awarded by a court with the intent of punishing a bad-actor, and to prevent them from hurting others in the future.
