When you have been seriously injured, your pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages probably mean more to you than your economic losses. What would you pay to sleep the night through, remember your own phone number, or be able to lift your child in the air again?
In Nevada, there is a cap on noneconomic damages in medical malpractice cases, but not in other types of personal injury claims. To receive the full compensation that you deserve, you need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney and your attorney will need as much help as you and your loved ones can provide.
Your noneconomic damages are those that cannot be directly tied to a dollar amount, such as:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Damage to your relationships
To recover maximum compensation for your noneconomic losses, your attorney must show how your injuries have affected you personally. Having to reveal these details can feel invasive to some injury victims, or it may simply feel inappropriate to talk about your feelings and how your daily life has been affected and diminished.
Keeping a journal of how your injuries affect you on a daily basis can help you pass this information along in a meaningful way, and help you heal emotionally over time. Statements and journals from those close to you can also show how your injuries have affected your life from a perspective that is meaningful to a jury.
