Factors Used to Quantify Non-Economic Damages
A fair award of non-economic damages is crucial to adjusting to a new normal after a serious accident. Nevada law specifically allows non-economic damages for pain, suffering, inconvenience, disfigurement, and physical impairment. However, courts do have discretion. For example, claimants can recover amounts for damage to their reputation and stress. Other compensable grounds include depression, anxiety, and other symptoms of mental distress that often accompany a victim’s physical injuries.
Unlike medical bills, lost wages, and property damage which all come with receipts, there are no fixed dollar amounts attached to the subjective standard of non-economic injuries. Valiente Mott takes a thorough approach to calculating your demand for non-economic damages. In addition to exploring the legal standards, together we will consider:
- The difference in your daily routine
- The impact on your personal and professional relationships
- The quality of your sleep
- What the future holds- professionally, personally, and medically
- Have you lost the companionship of your spouse?
- Do you still enjoy life?
How Much Can I Ask for In Non-Economic Damages?
Most claims for personal injury damages in Nevada are without caps, though there are some exceptions. For example, state law does impose certain limits on awards regarding medical malpractice cases and lawsuits filed against governmental entities. Whichever law applies to your case, our goal is always to obtain the maximum recovery of non-economic damages on your behalf.
