Compensation for Personal Injuries
In any of the above situations, serious injuries can result that could impact your ability to work or provide for your loved ones, while requiring the need for ongoing medical care and treatment. Common types of personal injuries that can impact your health while threatening your financial well-being include the following:
- Muscle and tendon strains, sprains, and tears;
- Dislocated joints and bone fractures;
- Severe cuts and lacerations, resulting in loss of use or amputations;
- Chemical and thermal burn injuries;
- Exposure to harmful substances;
- Back and neck injuries, including herniated disks and fractured vertebrae;
- Spinal cord injuries, resulting in partial or complete paralysis;
- Head injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries.
When you have suffered serious injuries as the result of another’s reckless conduct, you may be entitled to compensation through insurance company claims. Unfortunately, these companies are generally motivated by financial profits, and may use statements you make or evidence in your case to either dispute or deny your claim. Another tactic used is to offer a quick settlement. While these settlements may address some of your immediate concerns, they are likely to be for far less than what you deserve, leaving you vulnerable for future expenses. It is important to realize that once you sign a settlement, you are waiving any rights to receiving future compensation.

What Clients Say
I was rear ended as I was driving my car. Vibhu Talwar represented me and got me money for my car and my injuries. I was very happy with his services.
Mr. Talwar provided excellent council for my case. He was thorough, detailed and extremely knowledgeable about the letter of the law. He seemed to relish the challenge of competing against the huge law firm that brought a case against me. I would highly recommend Mr. Talwar for any legal needs.
Damages You May Be Entitled to In A Personal Injury Claims
In certain cases, a better option for injured victims is to file a personal injury lawsuit against the individual or company responsible for your injuries. Under California court rules, when injuries occur as the result of the reckless actions or inactions of another, you have up to two years to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. Depending on the extent of your injuries and the circumstances in your case, the types of compensation you may be entitled to receive through a personal injury lawsuit include the following:
- Medical expenses, including present and future costs associated with medical treatment, as well as medication, medical aids such as wheelchairs or lifts, and physical rehabilitation necessary to recover from your injury;
- Lost wages, including both the wages you lost during your recovery, as well as any future losses in income or benefits as the result of lasting disabilities caused by your injury;
- Pain and suffering; which is an amount that is calculated to compensate you for the physical pain and emotional stress you endured because of your injury and during your recovery;
- Loss of enjoyment in life, which compensates you for injuries that prevent you from participating in hobbies, sports, and social activities you once enjoyed;
- Loss of companionship, which compensates your spouse when your injuries prevent you from being able to participate in activities you used to enjoy as a couple;
- Death benefits, which compensate survivors and pay medical costs and funeral expenses in the event a personal injury is fatal.
In addition to the above, you may also be entitled to punitive damages, which is an amount of compensation awarded by the court to punish particularly reckless or negligent conduct on the part of those responsible for your injury.
