Damages, in a legal sense, is the sum of money the law imposes for a breach of some duty or violation of some right. Generally, there are two types of damages : compensatory and punitive. (The term "damages" typically includes both categories, but the term, "actual damages" is synonymous with compensatory damages, and excludes punitive damages. Compensatory damages, like the name suggests, are intended to compensate the injured party for his loss or injury. Punitive damages are awarded to punish a wrongdoer. There are other modifying terms placed in front of the word damages like "liquidated damages," (contractually established damages) and "nominal damages" (where the court awards a nominal amount such as one dollar).

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Understand the lawyers fee structure:
    The legal fee could be divided into a fixed fee (usually for routine legal work), an hourly fee, a retainer fee (so that the lawyer is always available to handle your case) or a contingency fee (where you pay the lawyer a certain percentage of the money you receive as compensation). Speak to the lawyer in detail regarding the fee structure and what services are included in the fee. If there are any additional charges, these should be clarified beforehand.

  • How you can help your lawyer and reduce your costs:
    Your lawyer is going to charge you by the hour. If you can help him with facts and documents, it could save valuable time. You must gather together all available information pertaining to your case that you think the lawyer will require. This could include addresses, telephone numbers, letters, wills etc. You must also ask your lawyer how you can be of further assistance in supplying further information pertaining to your case.
