One of the questions we’re often asked is “how much is a fair settlement for my case” or “how much is my case worth?”
In order to answer that question we have to look at what the law can award for damages. In Connecticut, plaintiff’s can be compensated for both “economic” and “non-economic” damages.
What is the difference?
“Economic damages” are compensation for pecuniary losses including but not limited to medical care, rehabilitative services, custodial care and loss of earnings or earning capacity.
Non-economic damages are for all non pecuniary losses including, loss of enjoyment of life, physical pain and suffering and mental and emotional suffering.
