Understanding Legal Terms, Part Two

Welcome back! Our attorney in Raleigh NC is here to talk more about legal terms that might be confusing when working with a lawyer or while having to spend time in a courtroom. If you missed our previous blog, visit back with it, as well for more information.

Damages is a word used by lawyers to describe the amount of money that might be recovered during a lawsuit. There are other ways to describe this word as well, including the following:

  • Non-economic damages are permanent disability, scars, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life’s pleasures, physical injuries and more.
  • Economic damages include lost profit, out-of-pocket costs and expenses, lost wages and more.

Though there are different types of damages, the word essentially means the same thing. Damages are things, physical or mental, that are lost and can’t be recovered during a lawsuit.

We hope this information helps you better understand legal terms you might need to know. For more information please visit back with our next blog post. There you will find more information.
