Types of Financial Compensation in Georgia Car Accident Cases
By statute and case law, Georgia allows financial compensation in the event of car accidents. These include: Economic Damages, Non-Economic Damages, and Punitive Damages.
Economic damages are considered to be medical expenses such as costs for surgery, rehabilitation, doctors’ visits and services, and ongoing medical treatment. Additionally, you may be compensated for past and future lost wages which arise as a result of a car accident. Financial loss such as damage to personal property such as your car or other personal property is compensable as well.
Non-economic damages include compensation for pain and suffering, and emotional distress. These damages are difficult to quantify in many cases. Nonetheless, they are recoverable with proof.
Punitive damages may be assessed where an at-fault party’s behavior was intentional or extremely reckless. These damages are awarded to punish the party and deter similar behavior in the future. Georgia has restrictive laws on punitive damages, and the maximum award is $500,000.
To receive financial compensation, a plaintiff must be able to prove that a duty was owed to him by the defendant, that the defendant breached his duty to the plaintiff, and that compensable injuries were the direct result of the breach.
