Damages are determined three ways. First, an injured person is entitled to compensation which will make them “whole.” This includes all out of pocket expenses such as medical bills, medications, lost earnings, and property damage. Secondly, an injured person is entitled to “general” or “pain and suffering” damages. Thirdly, some injured plaintiffs are entitled to “punitive” damages if the defendant acted with malice.
