Special Settlements

Lawyers divide the compensation in personal injury settlements into two categories: "general" and "special" damages.

Special damages are generally those damages that are easy to quantify, such as loss of income or medical expenses.

General damages
on the other hand, compensate for intangibles such as pain and suffering or mental anguish. In order to assess general damages properly, your lawyer can check the various precedents already set in similar cases.

Pain and suffering is the legal term for the physical and emotional stress caused from an injury.

Mental Anguish is the mental suffering, such as fear, anxiety, depression, grief, etc. that you or your family may face during or as a result of the incident and its consequences. It may be possible to claim damages for mental anguish if it can be clearly and logically connected to the incident.

Your lawyer and your legal team can help you determine what, if any, special settlement may be involved with your case.
