Assessment of Damages in a Personal Injury Claim

Whether your personal injury claim is for a dog bite, motor vehicle accident, or a spinal cord injury, there are certain factors that we assess when handling your case, one of which is the assessment of damages.  This tells us what your case is worth to you or how much compensation you can sue for if a personal injury lawsuit ensues.  Some of the factors that need to be considered where this is concerned includes:

  The Cause or Nature of Your Injuries
  The Extent of Your Injuries
  The Impact Those Injuries Have Had on Your Quality of Life
  Your Ability to Work and Continue Earning a Living
  Your Daily Living Activities Such as Housekeeping and Recreation

Once your Barapp Law Firm legal team has all of the information needed to represent you and your claim, they’ll assess the compensatory and punitive damages that may apply in your case. We’ll evaluate your case and give an impartial advice and then you can decide.

Common Types of Damages

There are two types of damages that are commonly awarded in personal injury cases.  These include “compensatory” damages or compensation for the losses that are directly attributed to your accident and injuries.  The intention of compensatory damages is to make the injury victim (plaintiff) a whole person financially.  Therefore, a dollar figure is established for each consequence of your accident and how the injuries you sustained have negatively impacted your quality of life.  This category of damages includes:

  • Emotional Distress
  • Home Maintenance and Housekeeping Services
  • Hospital and Medical Care and Treatment
  • Loss of Companionship
  • Loss of Earning Capacity
  • Loss of Enjoyment
  • Loss of Income (Past and Future)
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Property Damage and Loss

The other type of damages that are awarded in a Port Coquitlam personal injury case are “punitive” damages and are awarded less frequently than those compensatory damages mentioned above.  In addition to compensatory damages, you may also be awarded when the defendant’s behavior is deemed outrageously careless, negligent, or reckless and particularly egregious.  Although punitive damages in this type of case are awarded to the plaintiff, the true purpose is to punish the defendant for their behavior.
