Frequently Asked Questions:

What does damages mean?

It can be tricky to understand what types of damages you’re entitled to, especially in a complex case of negligence or product liability. There are several overarching types of damages in civil cases: compensatory damages, punitive damages, or nominal damages. Compensatory damages are also often referred to as "general damages," and they include a variety of specific damages that are purely compensatory. These payments are monetary reimbursements for particular out of pocket expenses. This could include the dollar amount of a hip replacement surgery, or the difference between a property’s value before and after damage. These damages are relatively straightforward, and could include the expense of the hip replacement, revision surgery, medication, hospital stays, and visits to the doctor related to the injury. There is also a more nuanced component to these damages, including pain, suffering, and lost wages. This category of damages is designed to calculate the total cost of the injury, including the emotional and physical suffering caused by the process. Recovering from a hip replacement always requires time off, which is inevitable. Time off caused by a second hip replacement or a revision surgery, however, is an unanticipated loss of income that the defendant may be held accountable for.

The second category, punitive damages, is also sometimes referred to as "exemplary damages." These are not directly related to the amount of money that you lost or were forced to spend, but are designed to punish the wrongdoer. If the judge or jury decides that the company or individual acted recklessly or maliciously, the court can choose to issue punitive damages to punish them as well. These damages are designed to hold the defendant accountable for their actions, but also to deter the defendant from acting similarly in the future. In civil cases with large payouts, the bulk of the verdict often comes from punitive damages or pain and suffering damages. The jury may award you the dollar amount of expenses incurred by the situation and then choose to punish the company by adding a significantly higher number.

The third common category of damages is nominal damages. These awards are never substantial, and are awarded to the plaintiff when a judge or jury finds that some wrongdoing has occurred, but no measurable or exact amount of loss can be proven. A jury could find, for example that a corporation acted improperly in providing the faulty hip implant in your body, but that that action is not necessarily linked to your current health problems. This would make it impossible to award you the amount of your medical expenses, but it might net you a nominal award.
