What Are The Different Kinds Of Compensation?

There are two categories of compensation that may be awarded, compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are the most common and are intended to address concrete effects of the crash, including things such as medical bills, lost wages, vehicle repair, and more. The other classification, punitive damages, applies for compensation that is awarded in order to specifically penalize the defendant for conduct which is perceived to have been particularly egregious.
