Available Damages for Texas Personal Injuries
If someone else’s negligence caused your injury, you may be eligible for financial compensation, or damages. Texas law categorizes damages into two distinct types: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are awarded to compensate for quantifiable aspects of your injury. They can cover items such as:
- Medical expenses (both current and future)
- Property damages
- Loss of wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Funeral costs (in the case of wrongful death)
Economic damages are typically easier to prove than their non-economic counterparts.
Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages cover things that cannot be quantified. They are designed to compensate for aspects that can’t be financially reimbursed, including:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Decreased quality of life due to injuries
- Physical disfigurement or impairment
- Loss of consortium (loss of relationship with a husband, wife, or partner)
It is important that you work with an attorney to determine the damages you may qualify for.
