Economic vs. Non-Economic Damages with Attorney Alex Ledbetter
Hey, this is Alex at Finney Injury Law, here to talk to you about economic damages versus non-economic damages.
The insurance company or a jury at trial will be responsible for evaluating both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are your medical treatment costs and your lost wages. Noneconomic damages, here in Missouri, permit us to instruct the jury on any item of damage. They are what some people refer to as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of sleep. The list goes on.
So, it’s important for us to communicate about how your case has affected your life.
