If A Plaintiff Is Awarded Compensation, How Is The Amount Decided?
Damages can be computed on a variety of factors, one type is computing damages to compensate for a previous wrong. These are called compensatory. Under compensatory, a Plaintiff Can recover if harm has already occurred, however Plaintiff cannot recover for continuing damages—must bring successive actions for subsequent harm. Other times a Plaintiff will be awarded damages for a Diminished value of property. The damages are calculated using the Depreciation of property and diminished value of use of property. Alternatively, courts may ask, If nuisance won’t go away—how much has the value of the property been decreased permanently? Finally courts may award damages for medical bills, pain, and suffering, or punitive damages to prevent that conduct from occurring.
