A tort is a violation of a person’s rights by another person that does not involve a law or contract being broken. The breach of a tort means that the victim may seek civil remedy with not involvement of criminal law. Tort laws have been set up to provide relief after being injured. Damages for a breach of tort often include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, future lost wages, pain and suffering and future inconveniences.

Compensatory damages are money awards to the plaintiff to pay for actual damages that occurred as a result of their injury. It is meant to restore the plaintiff to their state of being before they were injured. Compensatory damages pay for

  • Current and future loss of wages and profits
  • Current and future medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any form of therapy
  • Property damage

Punitive damages are money awards that go beyond compensatory damages and are meant to punish the action of the defendant that caused the injury.Punitive damages discourage repeat behavior. They also serve to help the plaintiff pay for attorney’s fees, which are typically 30-40% of the settlement in a personal injury case, and to allow the plaintiff money for necessary bills not covered in compensatory damages. The burden of proof that punitive damages are needed and deserved falls on the plaintiff.

All parties, drivers and passengers alike, should see a doctor after a car accident to assess if there are injuries that may or may not be obvious. It is not a good idea to seek damages before the extent of the injuries is known. Also common to car accident claims is a visit to the doctor up to a month after the accident to determine not only the rate of healing but also any injuries that may not have been obvious at the first visit.
