What Damages are Available in Personal Injury Cases?
If you were harmed because of someone else’s careless or reckless action or inaction, you deserve assistance with medical expenses and any other services that will benefit your recovery. Fighting this battle alone in court is almost impossible, but our skilled injury lawyer at KMD Law can help. Attorney Keith M. Davidson is here to guide you through the court system and help you develop a case that will demand everything you are owed from those responsible for your accident.
Personal injury damages may include:
- Medical expenses
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of future income
- Loss of consortium
In truth, your legal battle will probably be with the insurance company, not the person directly responsible for your injury. This is good in that insurance companies stockpile resources specifically for these situations and should be able to pay what you are owed, but it also means your opponent will be an experienced insurance defense attorney who regularly helps these companies mitigate payouts or avoid responsibility entirely. Our team has successfully fought these attorneys on numerous occasions. We know their usual defense strategies and how to counter them so that our clients can receive a maximized payout.
California’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases
Every state has a time limit for filing personal injury claims. Here in California, the statute of limitations for injury lawsuits is two years from the date of the accident or injury. This means that after those two years elapse, you will forfeit your right to pursue compensation for any damages you suffered. Thus, it is important to get in touch with an accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss your potential claim.
The Personal Injury Claims Process
Step 1: Proving Negligence
In order to have a valid personal injury claim, there are three basic requirements that need to be met.
These requirements include:
- The defendant was negligent
- The plaintiff suffered an injury
- The plaintiff’s injuries were a direct result of the defendant’s negligence
We’ll determine whether these three stipulations were met during your initial case review.
Step 2: Gathering of Evidence
Successful personal injury claims often hinge on good quality evidence. For example, a car accident claim may include evidence such as photos of the accident scene, witness statements, license plate numbers of each vehicle involved in the crash, and more. It is important to consult an attorney ASAP after an accident while details about the event are still fresh.
Step 3: Establishing Liability
Sometimes it may not be 100% clear who is to blame for an accident. It may even become apparent that there are multiple entities at fault that all contributed to the accident in different ways. Because establishing liability can get complicated, getting a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer involved is a must in serious injury cases.
Step 4: Settlement Negotiation
Based on the circumstances of your accident, the severity of your injuries, and the related expenses you can expect in the future, your attorney will calculate the damages you are owed. Then, your attorney will negotiate a fair settlement from the insurance company, ensuring that they do not resort to bad faith tactics in an effort to pay you less than what you are rightfully owed.
