Experiencing an unprecedented accident can be traumatic in many ways. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Under California law, you may be able to file for pain and suffering damages.
You have up to two years to file a claim for non-economic damages. In case of medical malpractice, you have up to three years. There is no cap on the amount awarded in most cases. However, there can be exceptions. You may not be familiar with these California laws; however, the California Trial Attorneys are.
Some of the claims that are covered for pain and suffering are:
- Slip and fall
- Car accidents
- Wrongful death
- Defective products
- Intentional injury, and
- Medical malpractice.
If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in any of these cases, you may be able to file.
Calculating the Amount
In California, a jury determines the amount you should get as fair compensation. Some of the important factors used to determine the amount are:
- Medical bills
- Type and extent of injury,
- Length of recovery
- Mental health issues as a result of the accident
