Compensation You Can Pursue In a Personal Injury Case

At Rainsbury Law Group, our dedicated team is committed to helping you understand the full compensation you may be entitled to following an injury. Personal injury cases can vary widely, but the types of compensation available generally fall into several categories:

Medical Bills

This includes compensation for your injury's past, current, and future medical costs. It can cover hospital stays, medical treatments, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation services, and necessary medical equipment.

Lost Wages

If your injury has caused you to miss work, you may be compensated for lost wages. This also extends to future earnings if your injury affects your ability to work or earn at the same capacity as before the incident.

Pain and Suffering

Compensation for pain and suffering accounts for the physical pain and emotional distress you have endured because of your injury. This can include anxiety, depression, loss of enjoyment of life, and the physical discomfort and pain associated with the injury.

Loss of Consortium

In cases where an injury affects the relationship between you and your spouse, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of consortium. This covers the loss of companionship, affection, and support.

Property Damage

If personal property was damaged due to the incident that caused your injury (such as in a car accident), you could be compensated for repair or replacement costs.

Punitive Damages

In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded when the defendant's actions were particularly egregious or malicious. These are intended not as compensation for the victim but as a punishment for the defendant and a deterrent against similar future behavior.

Rehabilitation Costs

Rehabilitation costs cover physical therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, and any other rehabilitative services needed to help you recover from your injuries or adapt to changes in your life resulting from those injuries.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

At Rainsbury Law Group, we understand that cost is one of the primary concerns for individuals seeking legal representation in personal injury cases. It's important to us that our clients feel informed and comfortable with the financial aspects of legal services. Here's what you need to know about the cost of hiring a personal injury attorney:

Contingency Fee Basis

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our fees depend on the outcome of your personal injury claim. Here are the key points about contingency fees:

  • No Upfront Costs: You will not be required to pay any upfront fees when you hire us. Our payment is contingent upon successfully securing compensation for your injury.
  • Percentage of the Settlement: Our fees are typically a percentage of your settlement or award. This percentage can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the amount of work required but generally ranges from 25% to 40%.
  • No Fees if No Recovery: If we do not secure a settlement or court award on your behalf, you will not owe us any attorney fees.

This aligns our interests with yours, as we are motivated to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Personal Injury Lawyer FAQs

We understand that navigating the aftermath of a personal injury can be overwhelming. To help you get started, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions about personal injury cases and how a personal injury lawyer can assist you.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is a legal professional who represents individuals injured by another party's negligence or wrongdoing. They provide legal advice, represent clients in court, negotiate settlements, and aim to secure compensation for injuries and losses.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

Generally, if you were injured due to someone else's negligence or intentional act, you might have a personal injury case. Common scenarios include car accidents, slips and falls, medical malpractice, workplace injuries, and product liability. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer can help determine the validity of your case.

What types of compensation can I pursue?

Victims of personal injury can pursue various types of compensation, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, and, in some cases, punitive damages. The specific types of compensation available depend on the details of your case.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

The time limit to file a personal injury claim, known as the statute of limitations, varies by state and the type of injury. In California, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. However, there are exceptions, so it's crucial to consult a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure your claim is filed on time.

Will my personal injury case go to trial?

Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiations, your case may go to trial. If necessary, a personal injury lawyer will prepare your case for trial, representing your interests and seeking the best possible outcome.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

Personal injury lawyers typically work on a contingency fee basis, meaning their fees are a percentage of your compensation. You do not owe any attorney fees if you do not win your case or secure a settlement. Costs and expenses may still apply, which should be discussed with your lawyer upfront.

How can a personal injury lawyer help me?

A personal injury lawyer can provide several vital services, including evaluating your case, gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies, and representing you in court. They can help maximize your compensation and navigate the complex legal system, allowing you to focus on recovery.

How do I choose the right personal injury lawyer?

Selecting the right personal injury lawyer involves considering their experience, reputation, and your comfort level with them. Look for a lawyer with a track record of handling similar cases and who communicates clearly about your case and how they can help. Most personal injury lawyers offer free initial consultations, which can be a good opportunity to assess whether they fit you.

Can I still pursue a claim if I was partially at fault?

Yes, you can still pursue a claim even if you were partially at fault for your injury. California follows the rule of comparative negligence, which means your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault in the accident. A personal injury lawyer can provide more details based on the specifics of your case.

What should I do if I'm injured?

If you're injured, seek medical attention immediately, even if the injury initially seems minor. Document everything related to the injury and accident, including taking photos, saving medical records, and obtaining contact information from witnesses. Then, consult with an accident lawyer to discuss your legal options.
