What type of compensation could I receive?
There are two main types of compensation that plaintiffs can receive through a personal injury lawsuit. You may be entitled to compensatory damages, which are meant to compensate you for any actual money spent due to the injury, such as medical bills, and non-monetary suffering, such as loss of quality of life or the death of a loved one. You could also receive a punitive award, which is often used to punish the defendant for extremely dangerous or reckless behavior.
