What about damages?

If you are successful in proving liability, you then must also prove your damages by the greater weight of the evidence. No matter how negligent (or liable) the Defendant may be, if there is no evidence of damages, the Plaintiff is entitled to nothing. Part of the Plaintiff’s burden is proving that the damages sought are a direct and proximate result of the Defendant’s negligence. The damages sought must be specific, and must not be speculative, or the product of guesswork. Damages in personal injury cases can be any or all of the following:

  • Property damage
  • Medical costs
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and/or the loss of the ability to earn money in the future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of the enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium (if the Plaintiff was married at the time of the injury).
