You may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses if you were hurt in an automobile accident in the state of California. We at Law Offices of Michael A. Kahn are available to review your case and inform you of your choices. After learning about the three primary categories of damages to which you may be entitled, call us at (310) 209-1600 for a consultation.
- Medical costs
- Lost revenue
- Non-financial damages
Medical expenses are typically the first thing that comes to mind when considering collecting damages following an accident. Many individuals are unaware that even if your insurance company paid for your medical care, you can still be entitled to the full amount they spent, plus any out-of-pocket expenses for things like prescription drugs, co-pays, and medical equipment (such as braces, boots, wheelchairs).
There is assistance available for lifetime medical treatment if you have experienced a traumatic or catastrophic injury. The insurance provider will probably contest the cost of long-term medical care in a major injury. One of the reasons you require a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer on your side is so they can present witnesses and experts to support the present cash value of your future medical expenses.
You may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages if you were injured in an accident and were forced to skip work, or if you have chronic conditions that could keep you from working effectively for some time. Even if you were able to use paid sick or personal time off rather than forfeit pay, you are still entitled to compensation for the missed time. You can add “if there is cause to believe you will need to miss work in the future for your medical care.”
If you have lost your ability to earn a living, we will fight to have you compensated as well. This indicates that you are no longer able to make as much as you could have before the injury. To support our position, we will consult with economists and other professionals.
Even if you weren’t physically hurt, you can be entitled to compensation for emotional suffering. Non-economic damages may be granted if you experienced any kind of non-economic harm, including pain and suffering, disfigurement, worry, bereavement, loss of pleasure of life, etc. Although there is no set method for valuing these losses, a jury may decide to award non-economic damages.
