Damages in an Excessive Force Case
What you can claim and how much your case is worth depends on several factors such as the details of the incident, who is involved, and the sum of your losses. Common damages in an age discrimination case include
Lost compensation can include salary, bonuses, or tips. You may also be able to claim any lost benefits such as retirement or insurance. We can calculate the exact amount of compensation you missed out on due to losing your job. We can also include lost future pay.
Pain and Suffering
In an excessive force case, pain and suffering often refer to emotional distress that you experienced. For instance, if you experienced severe depression and sought counseling, you may be able to account for that in your civil claim.
Punitive damages are typically not included when assessing what your case is worth. Instead, the judge will award you these damages if they determine that your employer or boss acted maliciously with intent to hurt you or your career. How much you are awarded is up to the judge.
