Compensatory damages – reimburse or compensate you for the costs associated with the injury. Compensatory damages should be available in almost all personal injury cases.

Punitive damages – are damages that result in punishment for the party responsible for causing you harm. They aren’t related to the type of injury sustained. These damages are also awarded much less frequently than compensatory damages.
