California Personal Injury Attorney
The amount that can be recovered in a car accident lawsuit in California will depend on the case’s unique facts and legal issues, including the availability of insurance coverage. However, the damages typically sought in a car accident lawsuit are:
Vehicle Repair or Replacement
Wrecked Cars are expensive to repair. Our car accident lawyers can help. Reimbursement for all necessary repairs to your vehicle or the fair market value for your car if it is declared to be a “total loss” by the insurance company.
Pain and Suffering Compensation
Compensation for all physical and mental suffering that you experience due to being involved in a crash caused by another person.
Payment For Medical Bills
All past and future medical costs that arise from the treatment you need due to your accident, including emergency care, surgery, hospitalization, medication, assistive devices and rehabilitation
Anxiety, depression, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other emotional health problems caused by your crash.
Lost Income Compensation
All past and future wages that you lose because your injuries prevent you from being able to work and earn a living. Compensation should include all bonuses, commissions, fringe benefits and income you would have earned through self-employment.
Recovery Damages that are intended to punish a party for engaging in especially egregious misconduct such as drunk driving (and to deter that party and others from engaging in similar conduct in the future).
If you lost a loved one in a car accident, you may be able to seek coverage of all medical costs as well as:
• Funeral and burial expenses
• Lost financial support
• Loss of consortium or loss of companionship.
If your own negligence partially contributed to an auto accident, you may still be able to recover damages. Your recovery would be reduced according to your percentage of fault. If you were 51 percent or more at fault, you would be barred from recovering anything unless the other party was engaged in reckless conduct such as drunk driving.
