What damages Can a Plaintiff Obtain in a Personal Injury Case?

A tort is an action by which one party wrongfully takes or attempt to take another person’s  property, infringes on that person ‘s privacy or harms or attempts to harm that person’s  body. A tort is a civil injury or wrong that is compensable through a civil lawsuit. Tortfeasor  is a person who commits a tort or wrongful injury. Tort law cannot undo the consequences  of an accident by healing a broken arm or taking away the pain of an injury. What it does  instead is to award money damages to compensate the injured plaintiff for the loss they  have suffered at the hands of the defendant. The goal of tort law is to put the plaintiff in  the position they would have been in if the accident had never happened, so far as it is  possible to do so by giving them a sum of money to make up for the loss. Because these  damages are awarded to compensate the victim for the harm suffered, they are called  compensatory damages. Simply stated, money damages are awarded to remove the  economic consequences of an injury and to provide monetary compensation for the non economic consequences. The amount required to compensate the plaintiff is the measure  of the harm done by the defendant period the defendant is responsible for these damages  as a matter of fairness and social policy.
