Pursuing Compensatory Damages in a Personal Injury Case

The outcome of a personal injury lawsuit often depends on the quality of a plaintiff’s legal team. At Campbell Whitten, we can investigate your case, identify the negligent party, and compile evidence that proves the defendant is responsible for your injuries. Armed with this information, we can develop a litigation strategy that aims to maximize your claim and safeguard your quality of life.

A successful lawsuit can yield both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages refer to veritable monetary losses, which we can account for by calculating your existing and predicted medical expenses. Non-economic damages are more subjective, and entirely dependent upon your personal circumstances and the nature of the accident. As such, the court needs to evaluate how your injuries have impacted your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Fortunately, California doesn’t place a cap on compensatory damages, except in medical malpractice cases.

Per the statute of limitations in California, you only have 2 years to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim. If you fail to file by this deadline, the court may refuse to hear your case or the defendant can request a case dismissal. Either option effectively ends your pursuit of compensatory damages. Of course, there are exceptions and nuances to the statute of limitations that you can discuss with our lawyers.
