What Damages Can You Seek in a Personal Injury Matter?

If you were injured due to the negligence of someone else you may be entitled to compensation. Injuries can be severe and lead to lifelong medical conditions and even death.

In California, there are several types of damages the party might be responsible for. These include but are not limited to:

  • Past medical bills
  • Future (expected) medical bills
  • Loss of wages from missing work
  • Emotional costs
  • Lost property
  • Pain and Suffering

There are many exceptions to this. Some severe accidents that result in a lost limb, for example, may affect the lifetime earning potential for the victim. This would be considered for damages as well.

Motorcycle accident cases are very complex in California. Lane splitting is legal in California which can cause more problems for distracted drivers and semi trucks. The problem with motorcycle accidents is that due to the lack of protection the bikes provide it’s easy to get seriously injured or killed while riding a motorcycle.

Interstate 880 is a common place where these accidents occur, but motorcycle accidents aren’t limited to freeways. In August a man was killed when his motorcycle hit a parked car in Hayward.

GJEL has recovered over ten million dollars helping injured victims from motorcycle crashes.
