Pasadena personal injury lawyer: Can you get financial compensation if you suffer personal injury?

Whether you can obtain financial compensation depends on a number different things. But generally, it will depend on the level and severity of your physical and mental injuries. As a pasadena personal injury attorney, you hope that your client's injuries are minor and that your client will make a full recovery. But that is usually not the case, unfortunately.

Other things that will affect your potential recovery are economic hardship or financial loss, decreased earning potential and physical impairment, including disfigurement. Compensation to make you whole or put you back in the place you would have been had the accident not happened are "compensatory damages." Damages to punish the person who injured you are called punitive damages. Here is a list of some of the common categories of damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Permanent scars
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of love and affection
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional trauma

Thanks so much for sharing this. My wife and I have been searching for a good lawyer for a while. We haven't had any luck yet. Do you have any recommendations?

Thanks for all the advice. I'm actually helping a friend look for an Idaho personal injury lawyer but this is still a lot of help. It's good to know that she does actually have a case. https://www.evergreenpc.com/page.aspx?id=2493
