Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyers

After sustaining a catastrophic personal injury because of another person or entity’s negligence, you may be overwhelmed with figuring out how to seek compensation for your damages. From medical expenses and lost wages to emotional distress and disfigurement, convincing an insurance company to give you a fair settlement is almost impossible on your own. Fortunately, California law entitles you to bring suit if you can prove the responsible party was negligent and their actions caused the accident, which led to your injuries.

How the California Statute of Limitations Affects Personal Injury Cases

To successfully litigate a personal injury suit in Los Angeles, you need to be aware of the state statute of limitations that governs the deadlines for submitting a claim. If you miss the two-year deadline, this usually results in an automatic dismissal if you try to pursue a claim. The clock starts running on the day you were injured or were made aware of your injury.

While there are a few exceptions to the statute of limitations cut-off date for filing, they are complex and require a highly-skilled personal injury attorney to assess your case.

Possible Damages for a Los Angeles Personal Injury Claim

After sustaining severe injuries in an accident, you may be unsure what damages you can expect to recover. You may wonder what happens if you still have health issues later related to the accident. Under California law, there are two primary forms of damages you can seek to recover. Compensatory awards of this nature can cover past, current, and future costs related to being hurt by another’s negligence.

In Los Angeles, the categories for damages are as follows:

Economic Damages

Damages of this type are based on your financial losses, including:

  • Current and future medical expenses

  • Lost wages

  • Loss of income potential

  • Property damages

  • Funeral expenses

  • Other related costs

Non-Economic Damages

When seeking this form of damages, it is important to understand these do not inherently have an economic value attached.

Some examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering

  • Emotional distress

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

  • Loss of consortium

  • Wrongful death

  • Mental anguish

To justify any claims for non-economic damages, your attorney will gather a significant amount of evidence to demonstrate your loss in this category. This could mean introducing medical records, expert testimony, and other critical examples that make a persuasive claim to award you these damages.
