What types of compensation can I collect after being injured by a Biomet Hip Replacement?

By: LawInfo

The kinds of damages, or money award, you could receive if you are successful in your lawsuit are classified as compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are monetary awards to restore you to the position you were in prior to being injured. These are also commonly known as economic damages because they are awarded to recover costs such as medical bills, funeral expenses, future or past wages, and pain and suffering. On the other hand, if punitive damages are assessed against the manufacturer, it is because the fact finder desires to punish the company for its wrongdoing.
