Special Damages in a Personal Injury Case

Today, I will elaborate on SPECIAL DAMAGES. Special Damages are those damages that you can pencil out on paper - these damages have fixed numbers. There are three types of special damages - property damage, medical damages and loss of earnings.

  • Property damage is the amount it costs to repair or replace your vehicle, the costs you incurred due to the loss of use of your vehicle and the costs you incurred in repairing or replacing personal property damaged or destroyed in the accident.
  • Medical damages are the actual amounts that were paid for your reasonable and necessary medical care - Whether it was paid by you or your health insurance company.
  • Loss of earnings damages are the amount of money you lost from missing work as a direct result of your injuries.
