Non-economic damages include loss of enjoyment of life, physical pain, permanent disability, scarring, mental anguish, and emotional suffering. Economic damages include your medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, transportation costs, and other out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury and your recovery. The non-economic damages are impossible to fully compensate because a monetary award can never undo the pain and suffering you experience because of a personal injury.
