Filing an Injury Claim
Los Angeles Car Accidents & Personal Injury Claims
If you have been involved in a car accident in Los Angeles, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim against the driver who caused the accident. A personal injury is defined as a physical or emotional injury that a person sustains due to the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another person. In a case involving a car accident, this may be a driver's failure to act with reasonable caution or care while driving. Speeding, driving drunk, talking on the phone, or texting while driving are all potential forms of negligence that may be grounds for establishing liability in a personal injury claim for a car accident.
Injury claims for Los Angeles car accidents are brought to civil court and are often paid out by the responsible party's insurance company. Most car accident injury claims are settled in negotiations outside of the courtroom, although litigation in civil court may be necessary if an agreement cannot be reached by other means.
Financial Compensation for Car Accident Injury Claims
In filing an injury claim after a car accident, you may be able to seek financial compensation from the party who was responsible for your accident. This compensation is meant to help you rebuild your life to a similar situation as before the accident occurred and may include money for: medical care, future medical treatment, physical therapy, living assistance, lost earnings, loss of earning potential, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, property damage, and possibly more. The specific value of your injury claim may vary depending on the extent of your injuries as well as the impact these may have on your life on a personal, professional and financial level.
