The aftermath of a car or trucking accident can feel overwhelming. If you've been injured, you could be facing devastating financial burdens, such as medical bills, prescription costs, and lost wages due to missed work. If someone else caused your accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
Georgia law categorizes accident-related injury damages into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages can be quantified and are typically easier to prove. They may include:
Medical expenses (current and future)
Loss of wages
Loss of earning capacity
Funeral costs (in the case of wrongful death)
Economic damages can be independently and objectively verified by financial statements such as invoices, projections, estimates, and assessments.
Non-economic damages include things money cannot cover and are not easily quantified. They compensate for intangible losses such as:
Pain and suffering
Decreased quality of life due to injuries
Physical disfigurement or impairment
Loss of consortium (loss of relationship with a husband, wife, or partner)
Because non-economic damages cannot be proven with monetary evidence, they are awarded based on the court's discretion.
