What Kinds of Damages Are Available To DUI Accident Victims in Queens, NY? 

Victims of Queens drunk driving accidents are typically eligible to receive damages that are broken into two categories: economic and non-economic. 

Economic Damages

Economic damages are those losses that are quantifiable and impact your finances directly.  

Examples of economic damages include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished future income
  • Rehabilitation
  • Therapy 
  • In-home care 
  • Medical devices, such as wheelchairs or prosthetics

Think of economic damages as those that are easier to calculate because they are likely to have a paper trail such as bills, estimates, and receipts.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are those that are non-financial and don’t have a clear price tag.

Examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Vehophobia (fear of driving)
  • Cognitive dysfunction

Non-economic damages are more personal and subjective in nature, but they are no less critical in impacting your quality of life. Our Queens DUI accident lawyers at Oresky & Associates, PLLC will do everything we can to prove your right to non-economic damages.
