In California, plaintiffs have 2 years to file their personal injury claims. This countdown starts from the moment you sustained the injury or became aware of your injury. This is a very important deadline, and we may be able to help you meet it. After an accident, it’s essential that you seek medical attention as soon as possible and secure a copy of your medical report. We may be able to use this information to devise a compelling case in court.

Damages and Your Personal Injury Case

There are three main types of damages an injured party can pursue in a personal injury case, economic damages, non-economic damages and punitive damages. Economic damages, as the name suggests, compensate the injury victim for any financial losses they suffered as a result of sustaining an injury. These losses can include medical expenses or missed days at work due to the inability to work. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, seek to compensate the injured party for non-financial suffering. Non-economic damages, also called general damages, seek to compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering, or mental anguish.

Since economic and non-economic damages seek to compensate the injured party for a loss, they are both known as compensatory damages. The only type of damages that seek to do anything other than compensate the injury victim is punitive damages which serve as a punishment for the negligent party for their reckless behavior. As such they are not often awarded.
