What are "Damages" in a Personal Injury Case?
Under California Injury Law, "damages" are the compensation you collect from the responsible 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 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 help 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 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 due to your injuries.
These normally 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 capacity to work and earn income for some time. Therefore, loss of income and increased medical and living expenses can create a significant barrier to recovery. Our law firm knows how to catalog these costs and ensure you seek damages for them.
Pain and Suffering, Emotional Damages
This can be slightly difficult to substantiate without an knowledgeable injury lawyer representing you. Fear, anxiety, flashbacks, increased physical pain, and other things can linger long after your accident. We can connect you with experts that can evaluate you for these conditions.
