What are "Damages" in a Personal Injury Case?
Under California Injury Law, "damages" are the compensation you collect from the liable 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 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 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 due to your accident, you can seek damages. But you will likely have to sue the insurance company to get them to pay for these damages. We generally 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. Commonly, 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. So, loss of income and increased medical and living expenses can create a significant barrier to recovery. Our law firm is aware of how to catalog these costs and make certain that you seek damages for them.
