In the state of California, if you have been injured due to the negligence of another person or entity, you are generally protected under the law and you may be entitled to receive financial compensation for the losses you have sustained. These losses may and often times do, consist of both property damage and bodily injury. The process of claiming such compensation, however, can be quite challenging. You must prove that the person or entity who caused your injury was negligent, meaning that the other person or entity didn't use reasonable care or judgment, and therefore caused the loss. In California you must prove:
There are other considerations that a claimant must also consider. They include, but are not limited to:
This law states that if your negligence contributed to the cause of your loss, the amount of compensation you may receive is prorated (or reduced) by your degree of fault. This "contributory negligence” statute can be difficult to calculate and at times is used to unfairly reduce your claim.
This law permits the plaintiff to recover damages from multiple defendants collectively or from each defendant individually. In other words, if a plaintiff sues three defendants, two of whom are 95 percent responsible for the defendant’s injuries, but who have no or limited assets, the plaintiff may recover 100 percent of their damages from the solvent defendant that is 5 percent responsible for the injuries. The type of damages covered under this rule include medical expenses and lost wages. It's different for noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. These damages are split between those who caused your injury according to their degrees of fault.
Obviously, trying to navigate the complicated legal process between an injury and compensation without counsel is risky.
