What are “Non-Economic Damages” in Texas Personal Injury Cases?

There are two basic classifications of damages that an injured victim has a right to demand from the negligent party that caused an accident. Economic (or general) damages are objective and are awarded as the injured victim’s actual monetary losses. For example, medical bills and lost income are both economic damages. They can be easily calculated by adding up the amounts paid out and, if necessary, computing each until the end of treatment and when the victim is able to return to work – whenever those dates may be.
