Available Damages for New York Personal Injuries

Under New York law, there are strict time limitations from the date of your accident to begin a case of personal injury and start seeking compensation. The amount of compensation—or damages—you’re able to recover will vary greatly depending on the circumstances of the accident and the extent of your injuries.

There are two key types of damages you may be able to pursue: economic and non-economic.

Economic Damages

Economic damages can be quantified and are typically easier to prove when seeking compensation. They are meant to reimburse claimants for things like:

  • Current and future medical expenses

  • Therapy costs

  • Property damages

  • Lost wages

  • Loss of earning capacity

  • Funeral costs (in the case of wrongful death)

Non-Economic Damages

Not every loss you suffer during an accident can be quantified. Non-economic damages are awarded to cover things that can’t be reimbursed dollar-for-dollar, including:

  • Physical pain and suffering

  • Mental anguish

  • Embarrassment

  • Decreased quality of life as a result of your injuries

  • Physical impairment or disfigurement

  • Loss of consortium
