Bay Area Personal Injury Attorney

Bay Area Personal Injury Attorney

Few situations are as difficult as dealing with the injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. If you have been so injured, however, you don’t have to deal with the consequences on your own. An experienced Bay Area personal injury attorney will help ensure that you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled and that you need to reach your fullest recovery. 

Your Financial Damages

If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured, your financial damages can include:

  • Medical Costs – The medical costs associated with a serious injury can include emergency care at the scene of the accident; emergency transportation from the scene of the accident; surgery, aftercare, and follow-up care; treatment from doctors and specialists; prescription medications; physical and occupational therapy; psychological counseling; adaptive physical devices; adaptations to your home; home health-care; and much more.
  • Lost Wages – If your injury is serious, it can seriously affect your ability to earn. The initial hours lost on the job can lead to a significant reduction in earning. Further, you could be facing a diminished earning capacity into your future – or even an altered career trajectory. 

All told, the financial damages associated with a serious injury can be immense. 

Your Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering refer to those undeniable damages associated with serious injuries that do not have a ready dollar-amount attached. These are often an important component of personal injury claims, and they can include:

  • The actual physical and emotional pain and suffering you endured
  • Any scarring you received 
  • The shock you went through
  • Any increased anxiety or depression (or other emotional distress) you’ve experienced as a result of the accident
  • The inconvenience involved
  • The associated grief and/or humiliation
  • Your ensuing decrease in enjoyment of life
  • Your inability to engage in activities that you formerly enjoyed, such as a favorite hobby or sport
  • Your loss of an organ or of a limb (or its use)

Any one of these losses can be significant, but in combination, they can be devastating. While the State of California does not put a financial cap on the damages associated with pain and suffering, there are some exceptions to this rule. 

Your Claim

While nearly any kind of accident can lead to a personal injury claim, there are certain types of accidents that are most prevalent, including:

  • Traffic accidents, such as truck, bus, car, motorcycle, bike, and pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog attacks

Whatever kind of accident leaves you injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you owe it to yourself and to your future to work closely with an experienced personal injury attorney.
