Compensation in Personal Injury Cases
When you are injured in a serious car or motorcycle wreck, hit by a semi-truck, harmed by a defective product, or involved in any other type of life-altering accident, you face serious financial, physical, and emotional consequences. If someone else’s negligent actions caused the accident that led to your injuries, you should not have to deal with these consequences on your own.
In most personal injury cases, victims and/or their family members are able to recover compensation for the following economic and non-economic damages:
- Medical bills (including both immediate emergency treatment and ongoing care)
- Lost income and/or wages from time taken off work to receive medical treatment
- Reduced or lost earning capacity if your injuries are partially or fully disabling
- Physical pain and suffering (collectively called “pain and suffering”)
- Emotional distress, disfigurement, inconvenience, and loss of life enjoyment
- Property damage if the accident resulted in damage to your personal property
Furthermore, if your loved one was killed as a result of negligence, you may be able to recover compensation for medical costs for treatment acquired prior to death, burial/funeral expenses, loss of a loved one, loss of expected income, and more.
In California, you have two years from the date of the accident/injury to file a personal injury claim. Additionally, it is important to note that California follows what is known as the “shared fault” or “pure comparative negligence” rule. In other words, if you are found partially at fault for an accident, you will only be able to recover compensation equally the percentage for which you are not liable. For example, if you suffer damages amounting to $10,000 in a car accident but you are found by a jury to be 30% liable for the accident, you will only be able to recover up to $7,000 for your losses.
Why Hire an Attorney for Help with Your Claim?
Personal injury and wrongful death claims are typically very complex. In many cases, there may be a number of complicating factors, such as multiple liable parties, strict liability, shared fault, or egregious negligence. The liable insurance company often tries to devalue or deny rightful claims. They may offer you a lowball settlement that does not even come close to covering your damages.
It is very important that you speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer in Santa Rosa about your case. At Torem & Associates, we have more than 35 years of experience helping clients with a wide variety of difficult personal injury matters. We offer free initial consultations and contingent fees, meaning there are no upfront costs for you and if we do not successfully recover compensation for you, you do not pay.
