The first priority following an accident that results in a serious injury is obtaining the necessary medical and rehabilitative treatment. The recovery process can be lengthy and costly, and may never be complete. Serious injuries often result in lifetime disabilities that can dramatically alter the trajectory of a life.
If someone else is responsible for the accident that caused your injuries or your loved one's injuries, he or she must be held accountable. Our firm strongly advocates for maximum compensation in every personal injury case we accept. In California, there are three types of damages awarded to accident victims. These include:
- Special Damages – Also known as economic damages, these are damages that can be quantified and documented such as medical and rehabilitative costs, loss of earnings, property damages, and long-term care costs.
- General Damages – These are intangible (non-economic) losses such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of companionship.
- Punitive Damages – These are damages intended to punish the defendant for gross negligence. These damages are typically reserved for extreme cases of malice or egregious conduct.
