A personal injury lawsuit allows the injured party or his or her family to seek compensation for costs incurred as a result of the accident. To be able to show that you have been harmed by the negligence of another, you must have injuries that resulted from the accident.
Personal injury implies any type of injury sustained in accidents. These types of injuries may arise from car accidents, slip and fall accidents, defective products, dog bites or wrongful death claims. The responsible person’s insurance company will pay money to the injured person for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other ongoing medical expenses.
A personal injury case can become formalized through a personal injury lawyer representing you at a civil court proceeding. This court session seeks to find others legally at fault through a court judgment or, as is much more common, such disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed.
Plaintiffs have a limited time in which to file a lawsuit, called a statute of limitations. Generally speaking, the period of time dictated by a statute of limitations begins when the plaintiff is injured or discovers the injury. Once you start the lawsuit you are no longer limited to a time frame to present the case and have the other person’s insurance policy payout if you win. In CA SOL for bodily injury is 2 years and for property damage 3 years.
Special damages means out-of-pocket damages that can be documented, such as medical and related expenses, property damage (e.g., damage to a vehicle in an auto accident) loss of earnings, and loss of future earning capacity.
General damages are for intangible losses that can be inferred from special damages as well as other facts surrounding the case. They may include pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of consortium.
