Q: Under California law, how are damages defined?

A: Two ways: Economic and non-economic damages.

"Economic damages"means objectively verifiable monetary losses including: medical expenses, loss of earnings, burial costs, loss of use of property, costs of repair or replacement, costs of obtaining substitute domestic services, loss of employment and loss of business or employment opportunities.

"Non-economic damages" means subjective non-monetary losses including but not limited to pain, suffering, inconvenience, mental suffering, emotional distress, loss of society and companionship, loss of consortium, humiliation and injury to reputation. Needless to say, this is a more difficult standard to prove.

Q: What will be taken into consideration in my settlement?
A: The amount of award (including economic and non-economic damages) shall include:

The reasonable value of medical care.

The reasonable value of working time lost to date.

Evidence of plaintiff's earnings and earning capacity.

How they ordinarily occupied themselves, and find what was reasonably certain to have been earned in the time lost if there had been no injury.

One's ability to work may have a monetary value even though that person is not employed by another.

The reasonable value of services performed by another in doing things for the plaintiff which, except for the injury, plaintiff would ordinarily have performed, is often included in the award. The present cash value of earning capacity lost in the future as a result of the injury in question.

Reasonable compensation for any pain, discomfort, fears, anxiety and other mental and emotional distress suffered by the plaintiff and of which injury was a cause and for similar suffering reasonably certain to be experienced in the future from the same cause.
