California law is clear. If you have been injured as a result of the carelessness and negligence of somebody else, you have the right to pursue compensation for your damages. That is not something you want to try to do on your own though. Most people do not know what their damages are or how to prove them. According to a Folsom California car accident attorney at Black & DePaoli, here are some of the damages that a person might recover compensation for in a California car accident case:
- Past medical bills and medical bills reasonably expected to be received in the future.
- Past lost earnings and earnings loss reasonably expected to be in the future.
- Any permanent disfigurement.
- Any permanent disability.
- Pain and suffering.
- Any diminished quality of life.
In presenting your damages to an insurance company’s attorney in court, specific rules of evidence apply. If not presented properly, the opposition will find any number of reasons to raise valid objections to the damages you claim. If those objections are sustained, damages that you claim will not be considered for purposes of settlement or an award. We are not going to let that happen. Our objective is to maximize the proceeds that you might receive from any car accident settlement or award. One of the ways that we do that is by properly presenting and proving every penny of damages that our clients have suffered.
You are not going to recover the damages that you deserve without an experienced and respected car accident attorney working on your behalf.
