What kinds of damages can I recover?
In a personal injury action, damages are divided into two categories: special damages and general damages. Special damages are those that have a definitive number like medical bills and lost income. General damages are things like physical pain, anxiety, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement. Each of these is a separate and distinct harm that deserves individual consideration. By maintaining open communication and staying familiar with each of my clients, I am able to adequately argue these damages to a jury.
