What Compensation Can You Expect After a Personal Injury Claim?

The two forms of compensation you can expect are economic and non-economic damages.

What Are Economic Damages?

Economic damages are sums of money that you spent as a result of the accident that can be measured. These can range from your medical expenses to the time you missed at work for physical treatment.

What Are Non-economic Damages?

Non-economic damages, which account for the accident’s psychological toll, are more difficult to quantify. These can include pain and suffering, disabilities, and other psychological or emotional harm you are experiencing because of the accident.

What Factors Does Compensation Depend on?

From car accidents to pedestrian accidents, each case is unique. The compensation you receive depends on numerous factors, such as:

  • The severity of the accident
  • Out-of-pocket costs related to the accident
  • The at-fault party and the percentage of fault
  • The length of the healing and rehabilitation process
  • Personal property damage
  • The level of injuries sustained
  • Lost wages and any impact on the ability to work
  • The medical interventions needed
  • Future medical bills and hospital bills
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Permanent disability or scarring
  • Punitive damages
  • Wrongful death

How Does Personal Injury Law Work?

This particular area of civil law is responsible for defending victims who suffered due to other people’s negligence.

To obtain compensation for their injuries and other damages, the injured party files a claim against the party at fault. Although some personal injury cases are resolved in court, the majority are resolved through insurance claims.

This is but one of the many issues a victim will experience; however, there is nothing to worry about as our experienced personal injury attorneys have years of experience negotiating with insurance companies.

What Are the Potential Problems with an Insurance Settlement?

Although it has been drilled into us that in the event of an emergency, we can rely on our insurance company, this is not always the case.

Due to their size and status as huge, publicly traded businesses, insurance firms typically put profits and the satisfaction of their corporate shareholders ahead of equitable compensation for injury victims.

Unfortunately, in this situation, victims often receive subpar treatment. Cutting costs is one of the ways insurance firms demonstrate such enormous profits, and this involves providing victims with just and equitable compensation.

Accident victims are given the opportunity to fight for the just compensation to which they are entitled. While injured people should be able to rely on their insurance provider to treat them properly, this is typically not the case.

Our Southern California personal injury lawyers can help with this! Whether you need legal representation in court or need help negotiating with the insurance provider, we have you covered!

What Is the Statute of Limitations in Los Angeles, CA?

You do not have an indefinite length of time as an accident victim in Southern California to submit a personal injury claim.

Victims must submit the required papers by the state’s deadline if involved in a lawsuit. The statute of limitations in California is two years for the majority of personal injury cases.

If your lawsuit is not filed within two years of the accident, the courts will prevent you from receiving financial compensation.

Are There Exceptions to the Two-year Rule?

Yes, there are certain exceptions to the rule. These exceptions involve the injury of minors and claims involving a criminal tort.
