Motor vehicle accidents are not uncommon on California roadways. They happen daily and result in either minor, severe, or fatal injuries for those involved. Some of the wounds sustained by survivors are life-altering and affect the quality of life they live.
Injuries that lead to organ loss, paralysis, loss of limb, or defective brain function are life-altering. Under California law, a victim who suffers any of the above can bring a personal injury civil action to recover damages for the loss sustained.
The standard compensation covers loss of income, medical expenses, physical and psychological damages, and consortium loss. The family of a deceased person can bring a wrongful death lawsuit and ask for the preceding.
