How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Personal Injury Claim?
Four significant elements must be true to pursue a personal injury claim in California.
- Duty of Care
We must establish that the party you believe is responsible for your injury owed you a duty of care. For example, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely, and property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises.
- Breach of Duty
Next, we must show that the responsible party breached their duty of care. This typically involves demonstrating that their actions (or inaction) fell below the standard of care expected in a given situation.
Third, we must establish a direct link between the defendant’s breach of duty and your injuries. We need to show that the defendant’s actions (or inaction) were a substantial factor in causing harm.
Finally, we must prove that you suffered actual damages due to the injury.
What Damages Can I Recover in a California Personal Injury Case?
Multiple types of damages can be pursued on our client’s behalf and are typically divided into economic, non-economic, and punitive damages.
In California, economic damages may include:
- Medical Expenses
This includes costs related to medical treatment, hospitalization, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, and other necessary healthcare services.
- Lost Wages
If your injury has caused you to miss work, you may be entitled to compensation for the income you would have earned during that time.
In California, non-economic damages may include:
- Pain and Suffering
This category encompasses physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish resulting from the injury.
- Loss of Consortium
If the injury has negatively affected your relationship with your spouse, you may be entitled to damages for the loss of companionship and support.
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Compensation for losing the ability to enjoy activities or hobbies you engaged in before the injury.
The court may award punitive damages when the defendant’s actions are deemed especially reckless, intentional, or egregious. These damages are meant to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in California?
Generally, you have two years from the date of the injury to file a personal injury claim in California. However, it is essential to contact a skilled Los Angeles personal injury attorney as quickly as possible after the incident so they can begin preserving evidence and building your case for success.
