How California personal injury law works
If you have been injured because of the negligence of another, you likely have a claim against the responsible party to pay for the harm done to you. These “damages” include losses such as your past and future medical expenses and lost income for time you missed from work or if you have become temporarily or permanently disabled. You may also recover for harm such as your pain and suffering, emotional distress or mental anguish, loss of consortium and other legally recognized damages.
Even though another party may be liable to you for your damages, obtaining that compensation can be a difficult and challenging process. Whether negotiating a settlement with the insurance company or taking your case to court, the burden is on you as the injury victim to prove that the other party was negligent (breached a duty they owed to you) and caused your injuries. This can be difficult as defendants and their insurance companies will deny that they are responsible. Common tactics include arguing that you are not as seriously injured as you say you are, or that your injuries stem from other incident or pre-existing condition. They will also allege that your own negligence caused the accident, or at least contributed to it. Unless you know how to gather the evidence to prove your case while fighting insurance company tactics, you can wind up getting far less compensation than you deserve, or even none at all.
