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 several broad types of damages we can request on your behalf, both economic and non-economic:
Compensatory Damages for Accidental Injuries in California
We seek compensatory damages for financial losses and pain and suffering. Keep a list of all financial costs you have incurred because of your accident. We will help 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 request damages. But you will most likely have to sue the insurance company to make them pay for these damages. We normally seek damages to pay for long-term care expenses, income loss, and accommodations you may need as a result of your injuries.
These normally include all medical expenses incurred to treat your injuries. Usually, an injured person can accumulate 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. Therefore, loss of income and increased medical and living expenses can create a major barrier to recovery. Our law firm is trained in how to catalog these costs and make certain that you seek damages for them.
Pain and Suffering, Emotional Damages
This can be fairly difficult to prove without an expert injury lawyer representing you. Fear, anxiety, flashbacks, increased physical pain, and other issues can linger long after your accident. We can connect you with professionals that can evaluate you for these types of conditions.
