What are compensatory damages?

When a court finds that one person has negligently caused some kind of harm to another person, it may award compensatory damages. These are various amounts of money meant to repay the injured party for different losses. Examples of compensatory damages include: pain and suffering; loss of earning potential; disability; medical expenses; loss of a loved one’s support, and so on.

Compensatory damages are meant to restore the injured party’s life to where it was before the accident took place. For more information about pursuing damages after an accident, contact an Oklahoma personal injury attorney from the Abel Law Firm at 1-800-739-ABEL.
