Compensatory Damages for Accidental Injuries in California
We request compensatory damages for financial losses and pain and suffering. Keep a record of all financial costs you have incurred as a result of your accident. We will support you so that you do not forget any costs. Injured victims often miss expenses like 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 in all likelihood have to sue the insurance company to get them to pay for these damages. We usually seek damages to pay for long-term care expenses, income loss, and accommodations you may need due to your injuries.
These normally include all medical expenses incurred to treat your injuries. Oftentimes, an injured person can incur tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Couple this with the fact that many lose the capability to work and earn income for some time.
