One of the first questions clients ask us is what types of legal damages are they entitled to recover after their accident? Under California law you are entitled to collect the following;
- Medical Bills: Past and future medical bills will be recoverable. The issue as to how much we be dependent on fault, reasonableness of the medical bills, and the time frame in which medical care was sought after the accident. You may also be entitled to future medical care as well as past medical care depending on the nature of your injuries after the accident.
- Wages: You may be entitled to lost wages and future wages. If you missed time from work and are unable to work because of your injury you may be entitled to lost wages and future wages. Your personal injury lawyer will have to assess your lost wages.
- Pain and Suffering: Depending on your injuries and your past and future medical bills you will be entitled to pain and suffering under California law. There are no published numbers for pain and suffering. The number that you receive for pain and suffering will be something that your lawyers calculates for you after he has all of your past and future medical bills and estimates in front of him.
- Property Damage: You will be entitled to your property damage being replaced or repaired.
