Damages are more complex in wrongful death cases than in other accident cases, so it’s important to have an attorney with experience with wrongful deaths specifically.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are always significant injuries. TBIs can cause a wide variety of life-altering effects. The effects may not show themselves immediately.

Calculating damages after a brain injury is also a complex process because effects don’t always manifest immediately or clearly. That’s why it is so important to have an experienced brain injury lawyer on your side. If you are looking for help recovering damages after a brain injury, contact GJEL Accident Attorneys’ experienced team of brain injury lawyers today.

Like the injuries and accidents themselves, the types of damage you suffer after an injury can vary considerably. Damages don’t just include immediate medical bills; there are plenty of other damage categories you might be entitled to after an injury. It all depends on the specifics of your case.

California law generally splits damages into two primary categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are those that have a demonstrable, objective monetary value. They are tangible damages that you can prove with a bill or other document.

Economic damages include things like:

  • Rehabilitation costs,
  • Lost wages,
  • Loss of future earning potential,
  • Emergency medical costs,
  • bills,
  • Hospitalization,
  • Prescription costs,
  • Surgery,
  • Amputation,
  • Medical assistive devices,
  • Loss of the use of a limb,
  • Mental health professional costs, and
  • Costs of damage.

Speak with a GJEL personal injury attorney to help figure out what types of economic damages you are eligible to recover. We will work for hand in hand with you to make sure that none of the damage you suffer goes unrecovered. GJEL’s personal injury attorneys are here for you.

Non-economic damages are intangible losses that are more subjective. As a result, they can be harder to identify and prove. Non-economic damages include:

  • Emotional distress,
  • Loss of enjoyment of life,
  • Loss of a loved one,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Grief,
  • Insomnia,
  • Loss of bodily function, and
  • Loss of consortium.

Because non-economic damages are often less identifiable than economic damages, they are often harder to demonstrate and prove. That’s why it is so important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about non-economic damages. A knowledgeable and experienced accident lawyer will help you identify non-economic damages and know how to prove their existence so you can recover damages for them.

GJEL Accident Attorneys in Antioch has helped countless clients recover non-economic damages of all kinds.
