Why You Need a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer

California is a comparative fault law, which means that you can recover damages regardless of the degree of your fault. If you expect an insurance provider to solve all your worries, you need to reconsider your options. A Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will not only focus on providing you support for immediate expenses. Instead, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will begin by understanding the details of the accident.

A *company name* Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will firstly ask you to recall the events on the day of the accident. After that, if needed, your lawyer will determine the degree of each individual’s fault by working with an expert. After recreating the accident and getting a full understanding of the accident, your Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will determine the damages.

When determining damages to recover, your physician will share details about the injuries you have suffered. In some cases, because of the severity of injuries, individuals are unable to go back to their routine. When this happens, your Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will include future expenses a part of damages.

Types of Accidents

There are different accidents that can result in personal injuries. To be eligible for filing personal injury claims, you need to prove that the other party was at fault.

How the Court Calculates Damages

The damages that your Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will help you recover will differ according to your case. However, in accidents that involve severe injuries, the most common damages include:

1. Loss of Wages (Present and Future)

As mentioned, a qualified lawyer will not only claim for lost wages in the present but also the future. This is because some severe injuries make individuals unable to carry out difficult tasks. This gives them no choice but to quit their present jobs and take up an easier one. In such a situation, you can claim for wages that have been lost because of the inability. This amount will be higher if the injuries were serious enough to make the person not able to work at all.

2. Pain & Suffering

The anxiety and depression that comes with such a tragic incident are a part of the damages. Being in an accident can result in emotional and mental trauma. A good lawyer helps you recover damages for such type of suffering as well. Moreover, the pain that you had to bear because of injuries, is also given due consideration. Some people end up suffering from chronic pain due to the injuries of the accident. If this happens, your lawyer can help you recover an appropriate amount for this pain too.

3. Medical Expenses

Costs associated with the medical procedures vary according to the severity of the accident. In cases wherein, Traumatic Brain Injury is involved, the medical expenses are extremely high. To account for that, your Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer will make sure that the severity of your injuries is understood. Moreover, the damages cover the expenses from the time you came into the emergency until you leave the hospital.

4. Loss of Consortium

It is not only the injured individual who suffers as a result of the accident. The family and spouse particularly suffer tremendously as well. If your relationship with your spouse has suffered in anyway due to the injuries of the accident, loss of consortium can be considered. Your spouse will be able to claim damages for the effect on your relationship as well.

Statute of Limitations

The most important reason why you should contact a qualified Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer is to understand the law. Many people fail to recover anything because they wait for too long and the Statute of Limitations involves a 2-year period. If you do not file your lawsuit within 2 years of the accident, your case might get dismissed immediately. Moreover, if the negligent party is a Governmental body, you have only 6 months to file your claim. Therefore, to act as soon as possible, you need to have the help of a qualified Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer.
