What are "Damages" in a Personal Injury Case?
Under California Injury Law, "damages" are the compensation you recover from the at fault party. Here are multiple broad types of damages we can ask for on your behalf, both economic and non-economic:
Compensatory Damages for Accidental Injuries in California
We try to get compensatory damages for financial losses and pain and suffering. Keep a record of all financial costs you have incurred because of your accident. We will support you so that you do not forget any costs. Injured victims often miss expenses such as towing your damaged vehicle, impoundment fees, lab fees, etc.
If your physical health has suffered due to your accident, you can seek damages. But you will undoubtedly have to sue the insurance company to make them pay for these damages. We usually seek damages to pay for long-term care expenses, income loss, and accommodations you may need because of your injuries.
These consist of all medical expenses incurred to treat your injuries. Usually, an injured person can incur tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Couple this with the fact that many lose the ability to work and earn income for some time. Therefore, loss of income and increased medical and living expenses can create a substantial barrier to recovery. Our law firm is trained in how to catalog these costs and ensure you seek damages for them.
Pain and Suffering, Emotional Damages
This can be fairly difficult to prove without an qualified injury lawyer representing you. Fear, anxiety, flashbacks, increased physical pain, and other challenges can continue to persist long after your accident. We can connect you with individuals that can evaluate you for these types of conditions.
