What are non-economic damages?

Non-economic damages include things such as loss of counsel, mental and emotional anguish or loss of consortium. Many other harms qualify as non-economic damages such as, permanent disability, trauma, disfigurement, and other monetary losses.

Non-economic damages are not easily quantified in dollar amounts. These damages are distributed to families of victims who have died or to severely injured victims. In Texas, there is a cap on
non-economic damages in wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuits. The cap varies depending on several factors, including the number of defendants being sued.

Non-economic damages differ from economic damages, which include medical bills, lost wages and loss of future income.
