What are Special Damages?

Special damages are damages that can be assigned a clear monetary value. Some of the most common special damages (also called economic) damages are:

  • Court fees and costs
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Repair costs or replacement costs for the injured person's damaged property
  • Lost income from time the plaintiff spent in the hospital or at home recovering
  • Lost earning capacity due to long-term disability caused by the accident
