The value of a personal injury case varies based on the amount of damages the injuries you have incurred. Damages can be awarded for pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of consortium, loss of earnings, loss of earning capacity, medical bills – both present and future, among others. In certain circumstances, courts may award punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded when the wrongful behavior of the defendant was particularly reprehensible.
