California personal injury law allows victims of wrongful acts to recover money for both physical and emotional injuries. This can include compensatory damages for out-of-pocket losses such as medical bills and lost wages, as well as "non-economic" damages such as pain and suffering.
Every case is different. That's why we examine all the evidence to put together the most compelling case possible to present to the responsible party or insurance company or, when necessary, the jury.
If you or someone you know has been injured by someone else's negligence, recklessness or intentional wrongful act, we invite you to call our experienced California personal injury lawyers. We offer free consultations and take no money unless and until we settle or win your case.
