What Are the Different Types of Compensation I Can Seek in Oregon?
Whether you have been injured in a car accident, slip and fall, or any other type of accident, Oregon law permits you to seek for damages from the negligent parties whose negligent, reckless, and careless acts led to the accident in the first place. These damages include:
- Economic damages – These refers to compensation for your out-of-pocket expenses in the days, weeks, and months following an accident. For example, your past and estimated future medical bills are a form of economic damages. So are any lost wages due to time missed from work.
- Non-economic damages – Not all damages can be precisely measured in dollars, yet they still exist. The most common form of these damages are awards for a person’s “pain and suffering” following an accident. But they also cover other forms of trauma, such as emotional distress and dealing with permanent disfigurement as the result of an accident.
- Punitive damages – In some personal injury cases, Oregon law permits a court to award additional damages to a plaintiff not as direct compensation for their injuries, but as a way of “sending a message” to a defendant whose conduct was especially egregious or outrageous.
