Claims for personal injuries
When another person is sued for personal injury, compensation is sought for the bodily or mental harm caused. The personal injury lawsuit is triggered by the victim of the injuries, while the defendant is the person who caused the injuries by acting negligently.
When the person dies as a result of the injuries, the claimant is the legal representative of the deceased or a direct relative. There are cases in which the party responsible for the accident also accuses the victim. This type of lawsuit is known as cross-accusation.
According to the California Statute of limitations, the victim has up to two years counted from the date of the accident to file the personal injury lawsuit. Likewise, as California is governed by the Pure Comparative Negligence Rule, liability in an accident can be shared.
In a personal injury trial, the jury could conclude that the plaintiff was also at fault in the accident. Consequently, the payment of compensation would be made in accordance with the percentage of fault of each of the parties involved in the accident.
On the other hand, in the case of personal injuries the burden of proof is lower than in criminal proceedings. This is because in the case of personal injury the objective is to get the plaintiff compensated for its injuries or losses. In order to obtain compensation, the plaintiff must show that the defendant acted negligently.

How much is my personal injury case worth?
Personal injury cases cannot be estimated a priori without first evaluating the circumstances of the accident, the severity of the injuries suffered and the responsibility of the defendant, among other elements of analysis. This is not possible to estimate before the preliminary consultation between the client and the lawyer to know the details of the accident and verify if there is actually a case.
After the consultation and the study of the case, it is possible to infer the benefits and damages for personal injuries recoverable. As well as a fairly realistic appreciation of the probabilities of success and the time it will take each phase of the process. The client may qualify to receive compensation for various types of damages.
The recoverable damages in cases of personal injuries are:
Are those financial losses that can be verified by medical bills (hospitalization expenses, medical fees, exams, surgeries, etc.), other out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, loss of work capacity and incomes generation.
They are those intangible losses that involve the life of the person such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, emotional anguish, loss of well-being and family life.
Punitive or exemplary damages
When it’s determined that the person responsible acted with malice or committed fraud, it’s possible to recover punitive or exemplary damages. The punitive damages are those that imply a pecuniary sanction against the person in charge. They serve to punish their behavior (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs) and dissuade the rest of society from imitating these behaviors.
Your lawyer will explain that to recover damages for personal injuries it is vital to present a solid case, with irrefutable evidence and legal arguments on the part of the responsible person or entity. Only then it’s possible to increase the chances of winning a case and maximize the recoverable damages.
