Damages at Large Law and Legal Definition

Damages at large are compensation for other than for material loss. The term refers to general damages consisting of non-economic loss and exemplary damages in appropriate cases. They may include, among others, elements for loss of reputation, injured feelings, bad or good conduct by either party, or punishment, and therefore no precise amount can be determined. The amount of damages at large are based on a subjective determination made on a case-by-case basis, after taking all the facts and circumstances involved into account.
