What are "Damages" in a Personal Injury Case?
Under California Injury Law, "damages" are the compensation you recover from the liable party. Here are multiple broad types of damages we can seek on your behalf, both economic and non-economic:
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 because of your accident. We will guide 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 because of your accident, you can request damages. But you will in all likelihood have to sue the insurance company to make them pay for these damages. We generally seek damages to pay for long-term care expenses, income loss, and accommodations you may need because of your injuries.
These include all medical expenses incurred to treat your injuries. Often, 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 aware of how to catalog these costs and ensure that you seek damages for them.
Pain and Suffering, Emotional Damages
This can be quite difficult to prove without an expert injury lawyer representing you. Fear, anxiety, flashbacks, increased physical pain, and other challenges can persist long after your accident. We can connect you with experts that can evaluate you for these issues.

Car accidents are some of the most frequent accidents that cause injuries in California. If your accident took place while driving or riding in a vehicle owned by you or someone else, you may have a claim. If your accident was the result of another driver's negligence, recklessness, or other contributing causes, we can help you determine what damages you can seek. As a result of the statute of limitations in California for injury claims, you must speak with an injury lawyer as quickly as you can.
Medical personnel which includes surgeons, physicians, or consultants do cause injuries. If your injuries are the direct result of their actions or in-actions, you may be inclined to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against those responsible. Generally, medical providers and facilities have good lawyers and good insurance. So, before making efforts to seek a remedy from the medical profession, it is best to consult with a medical malpractice attorney to start with. Doing this will guarantee you do not say anything that will harm your claim later.
