A personal injury accident can leave you permanently disabled and unable to work. If you have suffered from a serious personal injury accident you want to recover a maximum settlement. A serious injury accident can cause physical damages, medical expenses, loss of work, property destruction, pain, stress, and mental anguish. Â After a car accident in California, how do injured victims get the money they deserve? The key to receiving a fair settlement after your accident is to keep a detailed record of both your economic and non-economic damages. Â One of the cruel realities of dealing with a personal injury claim in California is that you will be tested when you are at your weakest. In order to receive fair compensation from the insurance company you will need to be preparing your injury claim. The best way to do this is by recording all of your damages in great detail. Â There will be two types of damages you can collect in a personal injury claim. The first is economic damages. Economic damages are any monetary costs that you have had to pay. This will include medical bills, loss wages, receipts for any purchases (including those paid for by the insurance company), services that you are unable to perform because of your injuries, and any loss of property, and future loss wages. Â The second type of damage you can collect are non-economic damages. Non-economic damages are not easily summed up with a monetary value. These can be opportunities you have lost out on, the pain and suffering you have endured, stress, mental anguish, and humiliation and loss of companionship. Â As you record your damages it is important to keep an honest record. Do not over exaggerate your damages. This could disqualify you in the eyes of a jury. Â If you would like to learn more about building your personal injury claim you can request a copy of “The Seven Fatal Mistakes That Can Wreck Your California Personal Injury Claim.” This book contains information every injured victim should have and is offered at no cost to California personal injury victims.
