What are special damages?

December 8, 2016

Special damages cover monetary losses that have a measurable dollar amount, such as lost wages, property damage, and medical expenses. In a personal injury case, a plaintiff can seek special damages to cover the cost of medical bills after she sustained injuries in a car accident.

General damages should not be confused with general damages, as general damages are intangible, non-monetary losses that do not have an exact dollar amount. In a case of the wrongful death of a child, a parent may sue for general damages for experiencing emotional distress or pain and suffering.
