We have successfully represented thousands of clients, and we are known for actually trying cases to verdict. Our reputation for aggressive client advocacy often means that the other side is more willing to settle our clients’ claims—but whenever necessary, we are prepared to represent you in the courtroom. 

What Types of Damages Can You Collect in a Civil Lawsuit? 

It typically becomes necessary to take legal action against another person or party when their careless or wrongful conduct causes you physical, emotional, and/or financial harm. Most civil lawsuits center on monetary damages, or compensation for specific economic and non-economic losses resulting from the defendant’s negligence, wrongful acts, or illegal behavior. 

The exact types of damages you may be able to recover in your civil lawsuit depend on the losses you have endured, among other factors. 

That being said, two main types of damages could be available in a civil lawsuit: 

  • Compensatory Damages: As the name implies, compensatory damages are awarded to compensate the plaintiff (the person or party bringing the lawsuit) for certain losses. These losses can be economic, meaning they have a set dollar value, or non-economic, meaning they are more intangible in nature. Some examples of common compensatory damages include:
    • Medical expenses related to an injury or illness
    • Loss of income, wages, and/or employment benefits
    • Loss of future earnings and benefits
    • Other financial losses resulting from the defendant’s conduct
    • Lost or reduced earning ability
    • Physical and/or mental pain and suffering
  • Punitive Damages: In contrast to compensatory damages, punitive damages are awarded not to compensate the plaintiff for his or her losses but, rather, to punish the defendant for acts of gross negligence, willful or wanton injury, and/or intentional misconduct. Generally speaking, punitive damages are meant to send a message that such conduct will not be tolerated.

Our Calhoun civil litigation lawyers can review the details of your case during an initial consultation. At this time, we can advise you regarding the types of damages you may be entitled to receive, as well as the potential overall value of your claim.
