If you can identify who is responsible for your injuries, then you may be entitled to pursue both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages compensate you for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other concrete financial losses. Non-economic damages include compensation for damages like emotional distress and pain and suffering.
If the person responsible for your injuries cannot be identified, then you are still entitled to similar damages through an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company.
