Compensatory Damages

Contra Costa County Compensatory Damages Lawyer

WHAT ARE COMPENSATORY DAMAGES?

Compensatory damages are damages caused by the other side in a car accident or personal injury case.  There are two major types of compensation you can receive.  There are your financial costs such as medical bills, lost wages and car repairs.  This includes costs in the future such as pain injections, future surgery or loss of a job. The larger number is usually your pain and suffering.  Pain and suffering includes your future pain and your future suffering and in many cases this can very significant.  

HOW CAN A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER HELP?

Personal injury law seems simple.  You gather the medical records, get the police, make a claim and magically money falls from the sky.   This perception sometimes leads to a “I'll settle it myself” disaster where important legal rights are lost and opportunities to document real injuries are missed.

Experienced lawyers know that the insurance companies require clear documentation of economic losses and your physical injuries.  Our lawyers and staff accurately and effectively document your personal injury losses.

PEOPLE vs. THE COMPUTERS

  And there is more …. Many insurance companies use databases and semi-AI type programs to correlate your claim with a potential jury verdict.  They adjust their offers based upon internal algorithms that may not accurately reflect your true pain and suffering.   The Horowitz personal injury team works with experts who uncover the algorithms so that your settlement demand pushes the computer's buttons.  We do this honestly.  We don't push buttons that are not deserved.  However, we must ensure that the computer sees all the injuries and properly categorizes them.  The computer will give the human insurance adjuster a settlement range.  We want to ensure that the range properly reflects your injuries.  We can then negotiate based upon what our experienced (human) personal injury attorneys believe your case is worth.   

LONG TERM DISABILITIES & FUTURE HARM

Long term disabilities are not always evident.  A slight bulge to a disk today may become a large bulge when you pick up a small child or grandchild.   A good personal injury lawyer will carefully review your medical records and pay close attention to what you report so that all injuries are accounted for in the settlement demands.
