A non-economic loss award is awarded as compensation for intangible losses, such as the pain and suffering an individual must deal with as a result of a personal injury. An award for a physical injury, in and of itself, is a non-economic loss. Awards for mental suffering may also fall into this category. These types of awards are directed to ease an individual's personal pain and suffering and are therefore not considered part of the matrimonial assets.
