When you file a personal injury claim you need to include all types of damages available to you or you will lose your right to recover for those losses. There are two basic categories of damages: economic damages and general damages. Economic damages are your out-of-pocket expenses and include lost wages, medical bills and other expenses such as rental car expenses. General damages are damages you may be able to claim for your pain, suffering, humiliation or distress, depending on the situation. Each personal injury case is different and it is important that you contact a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss damages you may be able to include in a claim.
