Your Right To Be Compensated

If you are injured due to the negligence or wrongful misconduct of someone else, you might be entitled to compensation for the damages they have caused you. Present medical expenses, as well as any future medical costs ,which you can reasonably calculate, are recoverable. Similarly, you may be entitled to lost wages for time you missed from work due to your injuries, including future lost wages if you are disabled from working or cannot return to the same type of job you had before the accident. You may also recover compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional distress, or mental anguish. If the conduct of the defendant was more than just negligent and was especially reckless, outrageous or malicious, you may be entitled to punitive damages which are designed to punish and deter such future acts.

Damages are not automatically awarded to you, however. It is often necessary to seek the assistance of a Pismo Beach personal injury attorney to file a lawsuit to force the defendant’s insurance company to deal with you seriously and offer a reasonable and fair settlement. If an agreeable settlement cannot be reached, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit. The burden in court is on the injured plaintiff to prove to the jury that the accident was the defendant’s fault, and to prove to the jury that you are entitled to the amount you are asking for. At the same time, the defendant, represented by a team of insurance company lawyers, will argue that the accident was not his or her fault. They may even claim that you were to at fault in causing the accident or that your injuries are exaggerated or were caused in some other accident. Being able to prove your case while standing up to the defense’s claims and allegations requires a thorough knowledge of the law and skill in preparing and presenting a persuasive case in court.
