THE INSIDE STORY
As a general rule, California law allows for the recovery of almost any kind of physical or mental harm or emotional distress that can flow from an accident. More specifically, courts have held that victims may recover not only for obvious injury and disfigurement, but also for other, less obvious signs of trauma such as:
- Loss of enjoyment of life. This may include things such as not being able to participate in family functions, sports, hobbies and other recreational events that relieve the stress of day-today life and that make life worth living.
- Anxiety regarding a current condition and ability to function. This includes anxiety that a person may not be able to perform his or her chosen occupation both while recovering from the injury and in the future.
- The fear of future harm. This includes the anxiety and fear that a person once injured will be more likely to sustain another injury to that part of his or her body or that he or she may not regain full use and functionality of that part of the body.
Also as a general rule, insurance companies do not like to pay plaintiffs, and do not want to recognize serious injury. Why should they? They don’t work for you. They work for the person who caused the accident and injury in the first place.
What is important is to consult with an attorney who can help you obtain compensation for all that you have lost. Finding an attorney is not all that different than finding a doctor. Go with a seasoned professional who will give it to you straight. Some one you can be comfortable with. You have to be able to trust and feel comfortable with the doctor or lawyer you retain.
