What are Personal Injury General Damages in Texas?

Following a truck accident, car wreck or other, you may find yourself involved in a personal injury lawsuit. The purpose of a personal injury claim or lawsuit is to recover compensation from the responsible party. There are two kinds of damages available as the result of one of these lawsuits: special and general.

Special damages are easier to calculate. They include money for medical bills, lost wages and other more quantitative amounts.

General damages are less easily calculated. General damages in personal injury cases often refer to compensation for pain and suffering, physical impairment and mental anguish.

Accurately calculating the damages and amount of compensation you are entitled to is extremely complex.  Contact one of personal injury lawyers today to discuss your case and ensure you get the justice you deserve.
