Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney

Backed By Over a Quarter Century of Legal Experience

If you yourself have suffered or lost a loved one because of another party's negligence, California law makes it clear that you are entitled to seek full and fair compensation for financial damages.

The insurance company of the other party may be required to pay you for:

  • Damaged or lost property
  • Lost wages and potential earnings over a lifetime
  • Medical bills and ongoing physical therapy required for life
  • Incidental costs related to travel, assistive devices, and inconvenience
  • Pain and suffering, including loss of companionship with your spouse and family

Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyer can help you receive compensation for:

What Qualifies as Pain and Suffering?

Physical injuries that you can see are easy to prove, but an injured victim may also be suffering with other physical, emotional, and psychological damages as a result of an accident.

All of the following is considering symptoms of pain and suffering:

  • physical pain and discomfort
  • emotional distress, such as feelings of guilt, bitterness, or shame
  • depression, anxiety, memory loss, insomnia
  • physical limitations
  • permanent scarring
  • post-traumatic stress disorder

How is Pain and Suffering Compensation Calculated?

There are two different methods for calculating compensation for pain and suffering into a personal injury claim. We encourage you to speak with your Los Angeles personal injury attorney to see which method is right for your case.

  • Multiple Method - If, for example, all your hard costs that can be proven with receipts and bills total up to $7,000 and you've been suffering from emotional distress and permanent scarring as a result of your injuries, we might file a $21,000 lawsuit, awarding you with three times the hard costs in compensation to additionally cover your pain and suffering.
  • Per Diem Method - As the name suggests, this method uses a daily dollar amount multiplied by the number of days you were affected by your injury. If you were bitten by a dog, for example, and missed work for a week because you had to stay in the hospital to monitor your injuries as a result, we would determine a daily dollar value then multiply by seven.

What About Construction Site Injuries & Other Workplace Accidents?

We are a pre-eminent California workers' compensation law firm. If you were injured on the job, we can help you receive workers' comp pay and review your case to determine whether you may also seek additional money from the negligent party that caused your accident.

What is a Third-Party Lawsuit?

Under most circumstances, injured workers receiving workers' compensation benefits forfeit the right to sue their employer for additional damages. However, workers' compensation disability pay only pays two-thirds of your average weekly wages.

By filing a third-party lawsuit against the party liable for your accident, you can recover significantly more money, including compensation for pain and suffering that is not covered by workers' comp.

Third-party lawsuits are commonly filed against the property owner, subcontractors working on site, a product manufacturer, or other employees guilty of misconduct on the work site.
