If you have been injured because of someone else's conduct, you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries. This compensation is known as "damages." At common law, damages are a remedy in the form of a monetary award to be paid to a claimant as compensation for loss or injury. Generally, the claimant must show that a breach of duty on the part of the Defendant has caused a foreseeable loss to the Plaintiff.
If you have been injured because of someone else's conduct or negligence, you may be able to recover damages for things such as:
In certain circumstances, you may be entitled to recover exemplary damages (also referred to as punitive damages) against the Defendant. These damages are intended to punish and make an example out of the Defendant. In order to recover exemplary damages, the Plaintiff generally just show that the Defendant acted intentionally, with malice, or acted with gross negligence.
