Personal Injury Claims
In California, a personal injury claim exists when a person has suffered harm due to the negligence or wrongful acts of another. Personal injury claims commonly arise out of automobile accidents, truck accidents, and pedestrian accidents.
Personal injury victims may recover for both economic and non-economic damages they have suffered. Economic damages include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and any other monetary expenses the person incurred because of the injury. Non-economic damages include recovery for pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Sometimes personal injury claims involve injuries that are serious and life-altering. Examples of serious injuries include severe brain damage, neurological injuries, permanent back injuries, and permanent joint and limb injuries. Our personal injury & estate planning attorneys in San Francisco are experienced with handling personal injury claims involving these and other serious injuries. Serious personal injuries can lead to permanent disability, chronic pain, hospitalization, and emotional injuries, such as depression and anxiety. Cases involving these types of injuries can be extremely complex and require an attorney with a thorough understanding of the underlying medical and legal issues involved.
In California, a wrongful death claim exists where a person dies as a result of another's negligence or wrongful act. The California Code of Civil Procedure permits the deceased individual's spouse, children, or issue to file a wrongful death action to recover damages for their own losses arising out of the wrongful death. If the deceased had no spouse, children, or issue, anyone entitled to property in the deceased's estate may file a claim. California does not permit the deceased's family to recover any damages for pain and suffering the deceased individual suffered before death.
