In a personal injury case, when compensation is awarded, it can be awarded for economic or non-economic damages. Economic damages refer to your financial losses, such as medical bills and lost income. Non-economic damages are more subjective and may include:
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Physical disfigurement
- Loss of companionship and consortium.
Most likely, you will not be able to calculate the cost of these non-economic damages. Our injury attorneys Jim Leach have the experience and knowledge of precedents necessary to determine the damages in your personal injury claim.
Recovering compensation for non-economic costs can be complicated, and we will work tirelessly to pursue this compensation. While financial losses from medical bills and other monetary expenses can be relatively easy to document and prove, non-economic damages are difficult to show. We will work closely with you to show how the injury has impacted your life and affected you in ways other than financial.
If you have been injured because of someone else’s negligence in West Virginia or Ohio, including Athens, Belpre, Parkersburg, Wheeling, Huntington, Charleston and Morgantown, please contact the experienced personal injury attorneys Jim Leach, Attorneys at Law to schedule a consultation.
